In brief: Open/confidential

Use of an adoption agency or voluntary adoption registeries helps with issue of confidentiality.
Try this website, adoption.Org for needed information. Your healthcare provider can also, help but more with anticipatory guidance on health and emotional issues inherent with adoption . Records from international adoptional may not always be reliable so be prudent with information provided.
