You need to meet in person with an attorney in your county. Take all the paperwork you have. Take a copy of your birth certificate. Take any proof that you were adopted.

Perhaps your adoption was not properly signed by a judge or the paperwork got lost. It is impossible to determine what happened.

The good news is that an adult adoption is easy and quick if your parents are alive.

I hope this is helpful.

Good luck!
