Home / Post-Adoption Services
Match Database Registry
This option allows you to enter the Providence Place Adoption Registry that tracks contacts from qualifying parties. You will also be entered into the Texas Central Adoption Registry. If matching parties have registered with our database, or do in the future, Providence Place will notify both parties and facilitate more in-depth communication (see Communication & Information Exchange below).
A search can have two possible goals – seeking updated medical/genetic information and communication/reunion. This includes the Communication & Information Exchange fee. There is no guarantee that contact will be made.
This option provides copies of de-identified files from the adoption record, including medical and legal matters.
The adoption process does not end when the paperwork is finalized. Adoption is a lifelong process. Adoptees often raise questions that parents may not be able to answer and Providence Place provides post-adoption services to help families understand and navigate this ongoing process.
Adoption is a gift of life, love & hope.
Action Adoption at Providence Place has helped create close to 6,000 families through adoption.
Communication & Information Exchange
This takes place after a match is made through the Match Database or after a search is successful. Providence Place assists parties as the intermediary by sending letters/emails between the two parties. This can be done on a long-term basis, or until counseling requirements are fulfilled for full information exchange.
This option can also pertain to parties who have previously had communication at some point, but have lost contact. This includes the possible search to update invalid contact information, although there is no guarantee that contact will be made.
