10 Things Adoptees Want You to Know

Due to the high holy days this is posting today instead of Monday.

Number 6

Don't tell us we're angry, we know it.

Wouldn't you be if all your rights to your history and heritage are not in your hands but in the hands of others who think they know better?

Back in the '50s when I was adopted was it really "in the best interest of the child," or "in the best interest of the biological mother," who most likely was a teen, a child herself.

Yes, adoptees are an angry bunch and our anger fuels our energy to press on for opening the gates to our history filed for so long in our sealed records.

Are your records sealed? How would you feel if they were? You ask if we're angry, shouldn't we be?

Your thoughts, please.
