Long-time readers know one of my biggest concerns is that adoption, in particular closed adoption, denies adoptees access to knowledge of what health issues run in their family, that kept members would be aware of. With openness that is mitigated somewhat, provided the adoption stays open and both sides of the adoptee’s family are included, not perfect, but better.
Yet, there are still closed adoptions both domestically, and internationally beyond anyone’s control. Sometimes, it isn’t just knowledge that is needed to make the difference. Thankfully in this story, the family had searched for their child’s family prior to the diagnosis, and had success in finding them.
I hope everything goes well, and according to plan, my thoughts are with the family.
