Looking for Biological parents in Bulgaria

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am a US citizen and I adopted a little girl in 1996 from Bulgaria. She is now 17 and has been asking questions about her biological parents. I have no idea how to find them. The only information I have is her original birth certificate with her parents names and the name of the orphanage that she was adopted from. My daughter wants nothing from her biological parents other than to say Thank you for making the decision that allowed her to have the life that she has now.

Neither of us speak Bulgarian therefore we cant communicate with any officials over there. Is there anyone on this blog that may have some ideas on how to find her parents? We are not even sure where her parents lived. All we know is that my daughter was sent to an orphange in Sofia when she was 5 days old. She lived there until I adopted her almost 3 years later.

Kris
