Bill will vindicate the right of adopted people to know about their origins

In the past, adopted people had to make requests to their adoption agency or the Adoption Authority of Ireland to find information about their origins. This process was slow and it could take years to find anything.

The upcoming Adoption (Tracing and Information) Bill will provide the opportunity to change this. The rights of adopted people will be properly vindicated. Birth parents will also have access to information from their child’s records. But, most importantly, the legislation applies to people to those who were adopted before its enactment.
