As of January 1, , adult adoptees, biological parents, adoptive parents of children under 18, and lineal descendents of deceased adoptees are allowed to seek health information through agencies called Confidential Intermediaries. Additionally, If all parties are consenting, adult adoptees, biological parents and lineal descendents may meet or share identifying information through the services of a Confidential Intermediary. Adoption records in North Carolina are sealed, by statute, at the time the adoption is finalized and remain closed to the public.
Non-identifying information and health history from the adoption record can be shared with an adoptee by the approving agency without Confidential Intermediary service. Non-identifying information that may be released includes the date, time of birth, and weight at the time of birth of the adoptee and the reason the adoptee was placed for adoption. In addition, background information about the birth family, including age, nationality, ethnic background, race, religious preference, educational level, general physical description and any other general information may be provided.
The health history of the birth parents and other relatives that might have an affect on the adoptee's mental or physical health, which is gathered at the time of the adoption, may be contained in the case record. The State Office will identify the approving agency and refer the requester for non-identifying information and Confidential Intermediary services if desired.
If the approving adoption agency is not providing Confidential Intermediary Services, this agency should refer the requester to another licensed Confidential Intermediary provider.
