In my state, there are adopted-persons rights groups, one of which I think is called ******* Nation.  If you google the topic of adoptee rights, you should come up with a list of organizations; look at their websites and see which ones seem the most well-informed and well run.  (I'd shy away from ones that seem highly emotional.)  Good luck, there is bound to be some way to get medical information.
