The majority of natural parents we hear from clearly wish adoptees to have access to birth records.
The majority of adoptees we hear from clearly wish to have access to their birth records.
Some adoptive parents (and I use this word respectfully to those APs who speak out on the subject and do so consistently and sincerely. I know that there are many of you out there, just not nearly as many as there should be.) SOME adoptive parents we hear from clearly wish their adult children to have access to their birth records.
The majority of people who actively oppose adoptees obtaining their birth records are-
Organizations who are supported by Adoption Agencies
Adoptive Parents and Pre-Adoptive Parents
Do you see a connection here?
The THEORY which they ALL use is ALWAYS the same: “Birthparents deserve their privacy”.
These groups who oppose open records are:
A. Doing so out of a sincere concern for the welfare of natural parents the world over.
B. Using this theory as socially acceptable cover for their own personal motives which are fueled by fear. And of course for those in the industry motive could certainly come from the thought of a possible loss of revenue by not supplying that which many of their CLIENTS (PAPs) demand.
If I were a natural mother in hiding I would keep my ear to the pulse of the open records effort. I would stay informed on a subject that brought me such fear. People always fight that which they fear. They do not remain silent even if they must speak out anonymously. Which means if those who oppose open records are correct and the mere THOUGHT of open records terrifies masses of natural parents then those NPs must be staying informed. They must be reading. Apparently they are just not commenting???
I ask you fearful mothers and fathers in exile……….PLEASE, come out of hiding and speak your mind! Do so anonymously if you must. Please, no agency, org. or AP cheaters commenting anonymously as natural parents. That would not be fair.
COME OUT COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE!!!!!
And if these “masses” of fearful natural parents do not exist? Well, then…….what exactly are we left with?
“Your honor if it pleases the court I would like to enter into evidence selection B.”
