Adoptee Rights
Adoption is supposed to be about what is best for the child. But what happens when that child grows up and is an adult? Currently, close to 7 million US citizens are denied access to the legal records of their birth because they happen to be adopted. Adult adopted persons in the US are denied access to their Original Birth Certificates, the legal documentation of their birth. This is a violation of their civil rights. The Adoptee Rights Coalition is a nonprofit all volunteer based group of adult adoptees, birthparents and adoptive parents working together to bring awareness and education to the need for unrestricted access to our original birth certificates. We want all Americans to have unconditional access to their own original birth certificates even if they happen to have been adopted. Nothing more than what every other American in the US has, nothing less. Equal Access and Equal Rights.

“No, not forever,” I said. “Just two days. And then I’ll come home and play with you.”
The next morning he headed off to school and I drove to the airport.

Challenges of adoptee documents -   - City-Data Forum


Some medical conditions strike in childhood, some in young adulthood, and some in mid-life. And if you do't settle on these issues within yourself, the questionaires come at you with: any cancer in your mother's family? Did your mother, sisters, aunts have breast cancer? ...And yes, these are the questions. If you are angry that you don't want to know about your biology, and something happens to you or your children, then you can't answer these questions. How will you feel then? Then you might have to ask yourself, "I wonder if I do have siblings with..."
