Rudolph’s Story

Adoption Reunification

An adoptee contacted the Adoption Council of Canada and wanted to locate his biological mother in Germany.

What ISS Canada did :

  • Contacted our tracing agency in Germany.
  • Found out that his mother had passed away a few years earlier.
  • Located a full brother (name in adoption file) and in doing so found a half-sister.
  • Half-sister knew the adoptee existed and was able to tell us –   ‘’My mother lit a candle at every one of his birthdays. I can tell him that.’’
  • Nieces and nephews came with the package also (something new for the adoptee who was an only child).
  • ISS Canada arranged for initial contact (there were language barriers).
  • First visit (of full and half siblings) occurred one month later, in Canada.
