Post Adoption Services for Adoptees

File Copies

Holt may be able provide you with a copy of your child materials from both your U.S. and International files. This is usually the same information provided to your parents when you were adopted. Documents can be lost over time, and Holt endeavors to help you replace these valuable pieces of history.

Birth Family Search

For some Adoptees, a search for birth family may be possible. Holt can help you determine this by reviewing your file and discussing your case with our overseas partner agencies. We can also provide a list of resources for you to continue your search on your own.


Proving U.S. citizenship is becoming an issue for many Adoptees, and Holt would like to help you solve any issues you may be encountering, including issues with social security or U.S. passports. We may be able to determine your status, provide document copies, and help replace lost certificates.


If you are considering a visit to a birth country, and would like to investigate your past while you are there, please contact Holt. 

Counseling & Referral

Everyone sometimes feels the need for an empathetic listener and expert advice. One of our social workers can assist you in determining what resources you may need and how to go about obtaining them. We want to help.


Holt knows the importance of maintaining a connection between Adoptees, birth families and foster families. Even if birth/foster families aren’t known, adoptees can have a letter and photo placed into their file should their birth family ever contact Holt.
