Operation Identity is supportive of those in their search for family members.  Although we do not conduct searches, we offer helpful suggestions and input throughout the search and reunion processes.

Operation Identity has reference materials and a variety of pamphlets and books in our Lending Library.  In addition, we publish a quarterly newsletter.

Operation Identity is a member of the American Adoption Congress (AAC), a national organization whose mission is to promote honesty, openness, and respect for family connections in adoption, foster care, and assisted reproduction through education and advocacy.
