I am a licensed Private Investigator as well as an adoptee who is dedicated to reuniting people with their birth families.
My specialty is the State of Ohio, but in some instances can work nationally as well as internationally. I have a wide array of research tools at my disposal such as amended and non-amended birth indexes, numerous data bases, as well as extensive contacts in agencies both locally and nationally.
I work with maternity homes, adoption agencies, various Ohio County Children Services, Probate Courts to get as much information as legally possible concerning adoptions, relinquishments, and non-identifying information.
I give personal attention to each client and my pledge to you will be that I will put my 30 years of searching expertise to work for you! Each and every case is handled with complete discretion and respect for all members of the adoption triad...
To God be the Glory!
The adoption triad consists of the birth mother/father, adoptee, and adoptive parents. The three are
inter-related and inter-dependent of each other. Searching to Reunite, LLC strives to be respective of
each member of the adoption triad.

A word of caution…beware of engaging organizations or individuals who offer to conduct “free searches” under the guise of performing “genealogical research” and/or those who ask only for a “donation” for their efforts. Under Ohio law, only a licensed Private Investigator is allowed to conduct a “search” (for monetary gain) for someone other than their own family member(s). See O.R.C. 4749.01-B. and 4749.01-H.9. As used in division (H)(9) of this section, “genealogical research” means the determination of the origins and descent of families, including the identification of individuals, their family relationships, and the biographical details of their lives. “Genealogical research” does not include furnishing or hire services for locating missing persons or natural or birth parents or children.
