Often times aunts and uncles remembering a sibling's unplanned pregnancy will be quick to meet their nieces and nephews lost through adoption. Birthfamily members are sometimes the instigators of a search, or if not the instigator, than usually actively involved in welcoming the adoptee back into the fold. Grandparents are a large part of this pool as well, having at one time supported the birth parents through an unplanned pregnancy or assisting in adoption plans. Family is family and most want to meet and know the members of their family. With Genealogy searches and indexes on the rise, more and more people are looking to reconnect with family.
