What is the name of your state? Florida. My father made me give up my son 45 yrs ago. Now that my dad is dead, I am free to look for my son. He was born in Hialeah, Hospital, Fla. I met the father of our son at our school reuion. We both would like to find him. The father has an autistic son. Is it possible to have the adoption papers open for health reasons. And,can we do it on our own. I live in Fla. so I am able to go to the Fla courts. If so, what are my steps? He was adopted by a private attny, can't remember his name.
