A pretty fair story on seeking equal treatment by law and full access their their birth records. This story actually discusses the legal status of adoptees relative to all states. Not bad.

Still hearing of adoptive parents calling their children “selfish” for wanting to search for bios. It’s 2018 people, if you want to adopt please leave your ego at the door. 😡

Twitter's community gives me hope that not all adopted kids will grow up feeling like I did. This community restores my faith and suddenly I find other who understand. I felt so lost until I started interacting with all of you. Now I feel less lost.

I honestly hate almost every AP right now. Especially if you are in charge of your DNA account. Let your child decide if they want to talk and not you. My feelings on adoption is my feelings and my story is my story. Don’t ruin your kids match over your ego 😶

Pondering the term "reunion" today. Heard a SW say it's "too emotive" & changed it to "contact" which I think is v. clinical. Would it be fair to say it only applies to us older adoptees who had closed contact? Wonder what younger call it... 🤔

Missouri FINALLY opened access to original birth cert. 1/1/18. I just sent off 4 mine. I've been waiting all my adult life - 32 years. Had I had access previously (a right all Americans except adoptees enjoy), I would have found my biomom before she passed.

Can any advocate verify if some adult are being denied because they use . That claim is made by this presenter. Would like to see evidence/news stories for this.

Feeling very triggered by my results. Hubby says "well I don't know exactly where I come from either!" Things not to say to 101??!

, the Fla. shooting is yet another preventable tragedy. Was it caused by mental illness due to or external societal pressures? We might never know, but keep raising your voices, keep asking questions, keep resisting.

Also, is reunion as a term only used by and professionals? I've never heard my BPs use it, and I seriously doubt my APs have!

An innovative approach. Have you considered bringing adult to Ethiopia to share their experiences as part of the diaspora, & engaging them in re-connecting with Ethiopia? Could be a great way to promote healing, understanding, & reform, esp w/ now ended.
