Preadoption Birth Record Information

As a result of Measure 58, an initiative passed by Oregon voters in 1998, an Oregon-born adoptee age twenty-one and older can receive their Preadoption Birth Record - the original birth certificate which lists the adoptee's birth parents. More information about Measure 58 as well as information on eligibility and how to order a Preadoption record can be found here.

Birth parents of an adoptee may file a Contact Preference Form or Updated Medical History for use by the adoptee.
