Hi. I am not an adoptee. To date, no one has been able to explain to me why I can have access to my family's medical history and why I can trace my family roots and an adoptee can not. What am I missing?

I understand the ACLU is opposed to passage of this bill because it infringes upon the rights of the birth family. When I called the ACLU in New Jersey and asked for an explanation of why the present law(s) do not infringe upon the rights of adoptees, I could not get an answer and no one there would talk to me on this issue. Come on, ACLU! Look at who's REALLY deprived of rights!

I am an adoptee and an adoptive mother. I found my own birthmother when I was 50 and some years later I found our daughter's birthmother. Both experiences were wonderful and fulfilling! Please vote for this bill and give adopotees their full rights!

I am a birth mother and an adoptive mother. I have felt the pain of my adoptive children as they yearned to re-connect with their birth mothers and to know their history. We helped our son re-connect with his birth mother and are helping our daughter find hers. I am re-connected with the daughter I lost to adoption. The heart is a muscle that can accommodate many types of love and relationships. Fear constricts.

I was reunited with my daughter in 1981; never wanted nor sought the anonymity this bill claims to give me, but I had no choice. lorraine from First Mother Forum

As an adult adoptee, I support this Bill 100%. I am sick & tired of the continued secrecy and lies in adoption. The ACLU, as well as other major organizations, need to stop their fight against our rights. It is MY right to know my history, yet I was never considered when that right was taken from me.

I'm an adoptive mom to two daughters from China, now ages 14 and 12. I've been searching for several years (with their full knowledge and support) for their birth families in Guixi, Jiangxi Province, and Lu'an City, Anhui Province. All children need to know where they come from to then move past the constant wondering and fantasizing that follows adoptees with no information, even those, in my opinion, who claim they "don't want to know". All people everywhere have the right to know of their birth family. I pray that someday, sooner rather than later, common sense will prevail and all adoptees everywhere will learn the truth of their first families, however difficult that truth may be to hear.
