Louisiana Adoption Voluntary Registry

The voluntary registry in Louisiana is a program created by the Department of Children and Family Services to help connect adult adoptees with birth parents and/or birth siblings. A “match” only takes place when both parties have volunteered for the registry. 

To request a registration packet be mailed to you, call (225) 342-9922.
