Has anyone done a birthfamily search for international adoptions?

I adopted my oldest son (A) from Russia in '03 and we have had contact with his birth family since day one. They came to court with me, and consented to the adoption right in court (honestly this is unheard of in Russian adoptions). We've kept in contact through the years, and have visited twice. My younger son (B) I adopted from Russia in '08 and there has been no birth family contact. I have hired an investigator to travel to his town and search for his birth family, and he'll be going in February . All of my friends that have adopted from overseas have never done a birth family search. Doe anyone have any experience? I'm so hopeful that we'll have a decent relationship with them, and be able to be in contact with them for the future. B knows that he was born in Russia and knows he didn't come from my belly, but that's about all he is interested in at this point. However, I worry that if I don't find out information now, I won't be able to.
