Dr. Donna Campbell, a Texas legislator has written a preemptive letter against Texas changing the law that seals an adult adoptee’s original birth certificates away from them. As I read the letter, it made me feel like adoptees aren’t part of families who adopt and birth parents who place. No room at the table for adult adoptees. She does state accommodations can be made to provide medical history, and notes there is already a way for an adoptee to get their original birth certificate, I.e. if they know the name of the parent(s) on the original birth certificate…

There is no such thing as anonymity anymore. Whether it’s now or later, with the advance in DNA testing and a growing segment of the population taking part, it’s not if, it’s when.
Support adoptee rights, it’s the right thing to do.
