We have never encountered any case where the birthdate of an adopted child has been changed by the adoptive parents, the hospital, the government, or anyone else. While birth givennames are usually changed by the adoptive parents to reflect a name they prefer, and the surname to their own, birthdates are not changed. We believe it would be against the law to change a birthdate. 80 or 90 years ago or more, it may have happened in the case of a private adoption, but it would have been quite rare.
If you were fostered you are entitled to know the full name of your birthmother, birthfather, and your siblings. The Adoption Act does not apply to people who were fostered.
