Iowa law about access to birth records is more strict than some other states. The Iowa Department of Public Health maintains the records. A link to the IDPH process for requesting copies of vital records is included below.
Children are considered "entitled persons" under Iowa law, and have the right to request a copy of parents birth records. However, in your case an adoption is involved, and access to your husband's birth record may depend on the specifics of the adoption. I would suggest calling the IDPH toll free number for guidance. The link below is to the IDPH website Vital Records page.
