Good morning! I am happy to help you. Really, the most controlling law here is your Constitutional right to freedom of speech. Since you live in America, you have the right to contact anyone unless ordered not to by a competent authority or statute.
For example (worst case scenario)...Janet gives birth to a child; Janet is unable to care for the baby, so she consents to an adoption. The child becomes an adult and Janet decides she wants to establish a relationship with her biological child. She reaches out to her (now adult) child. He shuns her and tells her he wants nothing to do with her. She then shows up on his doorstep, his place of business, and calls his home repeatedly. He then goes and gets a restraining order
against her. At this point, Janet can no longer contact him only because there is a restraining order by a court ordering her not to. Up until then, she had the right to contact him since there was nothing that said that she can't. Roger was correct in stating that there is no statutory provisions regarding this exact situation, and that is because laws are restrictive as opposed to permissive. In other words, laws tell us what we can't do - not what we can. Therefore, unless a court has ordered you to never contact this child (which would be highly unusual and probably outside the court's jurisdiction), then you are legally able to contact the child. Based on my experience, however, I do recommend that you coordinate this reunion with his adoptive parent(s). However, there is no law requiring you to do so.
