Confidential Intermediary: A position or function that is created or authorized under the provisions of the adoption laws in most states, which refers to an individual who acts on behalf of either an adoptive parent, a birth parent or an adopted child, to attempt to make contact with other members of the adoption triangle, whose identity cannot otherwise be legally established or determined. The confidential intermediary, who can be either a state employee or a trained volunteer, makes contact with the other party or parties in the adoption triangle, with court or other legal approval, and determines the willingness of that party to agree to a full or partial waiver of the confidentiality provisions that would otherwise apply to the adoption.
