Take a Second to Help our Cause

June 17, 2009 at 9:09 am Leave a comment

One of the most shocking things I learned about adoption when I started learning more about it online, was that the original birth certificates of adult adoptees are sealed after adoption and are supposed to remain that way forever.

In a post 9/11 America, not being able to access your original birth certificate makes it difficult for some law abiding, American citizens to obtain passports to take vacations, go on honeymoons, or travel for business.

It is a violation of our civil rights as United States citizens and tax payers to not be able to access our original birth certificates. Some states now have open records, but most still remain sealed.

Please join me in signing this petition in support of opening records for adult adoptees. It is easy to fill out and will automatically send a letter to your local representatives. You can edit the letter if you would like, but if you do not want to edit the letter it will take SECONDS of your time. Please give up a few seconds today to go to change.org and support open records.
