Should Adult Adoptees Have Access to Their Birth Records? | Mirah Riben

The affirmative argument is presented by April Dinwoodie, Chief Executive, the prestigious Donaldson Adoption Institute (DAI), an organization with no ulterior motive or financial backing that would impact their conclusions. It is on point and factual, backed by extensive research of experts in the fields of child welfare and law as it relates to this issue conducted by DAI. Their position is in keeping with the AMA, The American Pediatric Association, and The Surgeon General, all of whom recognize the importance of a family medical history which adoptees are denied without access to their original birth certificates. The DAI’s position paper on access is available here and here.

Hey there everyone!

I finished up my classes. The blogging and social media students were some of the best EVER!

The above post by author Mirah Riben is a MUST READ. It covers the arguments and is “on point” with my views… Follow the hashtag  #flipthescript on Twitter for some of the best writing I have EVER read on National Adoption Awareness Month (#NAAM).  Many adoptees have taken over the blogosphere this month. Their voices will change the world!

You can read my latest post at American Indian Adoptees blog… It’s November. It’s Nat’l Adoption Awareness Month and Native American Heritage and History Month. – Read: http://splitfeathers.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-hard-journey-naam-flipthescript.html#links

It’s time for me to take a break from blogging. It’s just time. We have some travel ahead, the holidaze, and some grandchildren to tend to…which is pure joy for me.

I’ll be back in January. Be your best. Be the LOVE… Lara/Trace
