I'm not a professional searcher, but...

I always look forward to hearing from others. However, I should note that, while I have experience searching and have had success with my own and other peoples' searches, I am not a professional searcher. But, if you'd simply like some advice or ideas for your search, I will be glad to provide what I can.

My original birth certificate remains sealed from me. I don't have a copy of it, but...

I can give you information on the OBC access laws for all states, since the laws vary greatly from state to state. If you live in a state that requires a court petition to gain OBC access and you are planning to petition the court, you may do so with or without the aid of an attorney. As a person adopted in California, I am subject to California's strict laws regarding OBC access. Despite having petitioned the court for access following my reunion, I was denied access to my OBC by the Superior Court. I still do not have a copy of my own OBC. The court determined that I did not show "good cause" for granting the petition.
