Amended Birth Certificate: A term used to refer to the new birth certificate that is issued for an adopted child after an adoption becomes final, which shows the new name of the adopted child and the adoptive parents as the parents of the child, as though they are its biological parents. This new birth certificate is placed in the public records in place of the child's original birth certificate. The original birth certificate is then stored in a separate secure location that is not accessible to the public, and may be viewed only by court order.

For theresa- im struggling w/ similar situation. I think I wad adopted and keep having people tell me to get a dna test. But if a birth cert. Can be amended to change the facts of life wouldnt it be just as easy to write a dns result that says you arent adopted, regardless of what the actual result is. It is 2014 let's acknowledge the reality of a 'big brotheresque' world. #1

I was just reading my friend's Dad's amended birth certificate, as he just recently was told he was adopted. I did notice, and this is a Californian certificate, that where it says how many live births the mother had, how many stillborns, etc, there is absolutely no info at all. I wonder if that is the case for other adopted children's certificates? #2

I have an ABC. After 911 I had difficultly getting a passport renewal with it. After an emotional goose chase I've determined though DNA tests I am not adopted. How did this happen? #3

I was born according to my Birth Certificate in Illinois in 1954. However I've alot of reason to belive it was manipulated when i was 6mos old. Can you please explain how I can tell if I have the "true" and correct information on my Certificate? It says Certification of Vital Record on the top, then lower left (Certificate of Birth) My parents ages are not correct and my birth numbers first 3 are 6mos after I was born. There of course are many other reasons for my doubt, i just need to know how to tell if there is a sealed version somewhere. On my copy from the County the first line says Birth # and has two different ones below is very limited information compared to the State copy. Any help or ideas will be most apprieciated! #4
