The figures reveal that 3,450 children were adopted in England between April 2011 and March 2012, according to information released by the Department of Education. Figures are up 12% from the previous year, with 400 more children adopted from the care system.
The most common age for adoption was between one and four, with 2.550 children in that age group adopted and 70 babies (age 0-1).
With many children adopted at a young age, some never know their birth parents. Since the 1976 Adoption Act, adoptees over the age of 18 have had the right to access their original birth records. The average age for applicants is 30 for both men and women, with 25% of men and 40% of women requesting a copy of their birth records.
For those that wish to trace their birth parents,Manchester Private Investigators are often called upon to help with the search. Their tracing expertises can help locate birth parents for those that want to track them down. Over 80% of people that have been adopted and access their original birth records said that having access to the information answered important information about their background.
A spokesperson from Private Detectives Manchester said:
“Some adopted people wish to trace their birth parents to gain some understanding of their history and background. Our detectives have the expertise to help track down birth parents, should they wish to get in touch.”
