Adoptees and Birthmothers can obtain
                                    the county of finalization of the adopted
                                    child by writing to the Department of Vital 
                                    Statistics. I have heard that the Vital
                                    Statistics office requests that you do not call
                                    requesting this information as phone calls
                                    are proving to be counter productive in
                                    the search effort.
                                    
                                    Write a simple letter requesting where the
                                    adoption was finalized and include the following information:
                                    
                                    1) Full name at the time of adoption
                                    2) Relationship to adopted child
                                    3) Date of Birth of adopted child
                                    4) Place of birth of adopted child (Hospital & City if possible)

                                    You must include a check for $9.00 made out to
                                    Florida Department of Vital Statistics and a
