Health Issues

Adults adopted as children would have access to their original birth certificates under House Bill 445. These certificates are often sealed from public view at the time of adoption, and the names of the birth parents are not attainable. Descendants of a deceased adoptee could also make the request. Birth parents would be allowed to indicate whether or not they would want to be contacted, but in either case could provide updated medical history.
