I am a retired LTC, U.S. Army, 101 Airborne. My wife is an adoptee. I support her right to have access to her OBC and medical information. She can handle the truth.

Hello, Peter! It was an honor to meet you at the 2015 American Adoption Congress. I am glad that you exist! Please keep doing what you are doing! You are an inspiration, and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you again, and bonus, advocate with you in the fight to have adoptees receive their full rights as citizens to access their own birth records!

I am a late discovery adoptee and wife of an army brat. I found out about my adoption at 48 as a mom with 3 children. My adoptive parents were deceased when a cousin slipped and told me. I am in reunion with my family of origin thanks to a private paid professional searcher. Fighting the good fight for our civil rights to our OBCs to be restored.

Well i am still around but havent learned anything so far,it just makes you want to give up as i really dont have much hope anymore.I have heart failure and its in the third stage,there is four stages to it and have so many other health problems that it seems to be the best thing to do is just let it go and if he knows or finds out he is adopted,he will find me before it is to late.I am in and out of hospital a lot because of fluid on me and they cant find out what is causing it.Just hope and pray that he had good adoptive parents.I love him dearly and hope he can understand why i did let him go.nettie cox

I am a 62 yr old adoptee - met Pete and learned about his work at AAC in SFO last week - signed the petition. I've been trusted with our nations secrets in 40+ yrs of govt service - and the state of SC won't let me see my own birth certificate. I look forward to finally retiring and getting active in this and other related movments.

Hi, I am an 'Intercountry' Adoptee, born in Italy and adopted into New York State in Jan., 1959 [with complicated medical history]. I have submitted Testimony to the Assembly Health Committee Hearing in support of Bill A.909 (Weprin)/S.2490-A (Lanza) this coming January 31, 2014. Thank you for your endeavors in support of unsealing adoptee records.
Born 11/6/1938 as Philip Berry to Evelyn Berry (as reported) according to a paid searcher. It was a private adoption, probably thru a Dr. in the Bronx, NY. My birth certificate says I was born in Manhattan General Hospital.
As a veteran of the U.S. Army and an Ex Fire Chief of a local volunteer fire company and more importantly, as a U.S. citizen, I believe withholding my original birth certificate from me is an abuse of my rights. I pray this situation is corrected before I am gone from this world.

Hello, I am an adoptee born in August 1975, My non-id info states my mother put her first born son up for adoption through the same agency she used for me (VOA- New Orleans). He was born in July of 1972. He was born premature weighint 5lbs 3oz. My first born was born with a rare form of spina bifida. If records were unsealed I would have more answers. Through the grace of God she is fine now but what about her future children or my other daughter's future children. I just want what should be a given.

I am an adult adoptee with my own children, I unknowingly passed a genetic disorder on to two fo my children, If I had my medical history we would have known! We could have bypassed years of worry and painful testing on my children, including a surgical muscle biopsy after my son developed a life threatening reaction. All could have been avoided, these secrets can kill, my son is just lucky to have pulled through. I have 3 siblings, full siblings as my non identifying info that I sent for states my parents were married but separated at the time of my birth. I have no way of knowing what other diseases run in my family and I am no longer a child who needs to be protected.
THANK YOU FOR SERVING, MAJ Peter W. Franklin firstname.lastname@example.org 973-768-4009
