Adoption Reunion Voluntary Registry


The Louisiana Adoption Voluntary Registry is a registry established by the Department of Children & Family Services to facilitate voluntary contact between adult adoptees, their birth parents and/or siblings.

Who May Register?  The following people are eligible to use the Voluntary Registry:

  • an adopted person who is at least 18 years of age,
  • a biological parent, a biological sibling who is at least 18 years of age,
  • a parent or sibling or descendant (or his parent if a minor) of a deceased biological parent,
  • an adoptive parent of a minor adopted child,
  • an adoptive parent or descendant of a deceased adopted person (or his parent if a minor)

What Happens If There Is A Match?


If there is a match after registration, both parties will be required to complete one hour of counseling. Upon receipt of the completed counseling forms from both parties, the Registry will submit a written letter to the counselor of the adopted person (or the party representing him if he is a minor or is deceased) providing the details of the match. This counselor shall then contact the matched registered parties in a careful and confidential manner to give them the information to contact each other.


How do I register?


To request a registration packet be mailed to you, call 1-888-LAHELP-U (888-524-3578), choose your language and then select options 6-4-2 or complete the Online Voluntary Registry Form.
