11. My child doesn't know they were adopted

My child doesn't know they were adopted so they don't have a veto. Is there anything I can do to stop their birth parents making contact?

Answer

Identifying information about your child will be available to their birth parent/s if they apply for it. They can then search and make contact if they wish to. 

We recommend that you talk with the Post Adoption Support Services on (08) 8245 8100 to discuss ways of telling your child that they are adopted prior to any potential contact.
