Adoptees may seek help and resources to assist them at any age. Children, and especially teenagers, may have thoughts about their biological heritage or how to get along better with their parents. Young adults about to become parents themselves may wonder about their genetic history and the facts of their individual adoption journey. Older adults may have never sought answers to their questions but feel that they must now do so to feel at peace.

It is important to accept that there are no questions that are out of bounds for any adoptee. Every individual adoptee is a unique person with a unique history, and that questioning is a very healthy process to undertake.
