In Idaho, a mutual consent registry is operated by State Registrar of Vital Statistics. Adult adoptees, birth parents, biological siblings of adult adoptees and biological relatives of deceased adoptees and deceased birth parents may register. Identifying information respecting birth parents will not be released to an adult adoptee without the consent of the other birth parent UNLESS there is only one birth parent listed on the original birth certificate, the other birth parent is deceased, or the other birth parent cannot be located. No governmental employee may solicit a consent for release of information or registration with the registry. There is no provision for the release of non-identifying information. For registry information, contact: Department of Health and Welfare, Division of Family and Children's Services, Statehouse Mail, Boise, Idaho 83720. Telephone: (208) 338-7000. Idaho Code 39-259A (1985).
