As a young adult who was adopted through the foster care system right here in Humboldt County, I find it sad that others would so quickly attack an agency they are unfamiliar with. State Adoptions is not a for profit agency, they are there primarily to help children like me who would otherwise grow up in foster care. Not only have they been there for my adoptive family, but they helped me to get connected with members of my birth family.
Sure there are difficulties for those of us that have been adopted and yes, I too wish I knew some things about my past that I don't. But I think the point Ms. Coke was trying to make is that it would be a shame if we allowed our frustrations to become misdirected. These issues should be focused at policy makers and legislatures who can do something about effecting change. NOT the social workers who are doing their best to find homes for children like me who otherwise would have spent my life bouncing from foster home to foster home.
