Voluntary Registry
Current Legislation
The state of Texas does provide a Voluntary Registry for birthparents and adoptees who do wish to locate each other. The birthparents can register, through Smithlawn, indicating their desire to contact their biological child. If the adoptee, after reaching the age of 18, also registers, then a match can be made. This is the legal mechanism in place for such searches.
