Re: “Adopting Reform

"Adoptions today are significantly different than they were even 10-20 years ago. There has been a huge paradigm shift, moving away from the days of closed and secretive adoptions, to a time when children are given the opportunity to know of all the parents in their lives." Actually, they're not all that different. I'm sure Ms. Coke is well aware that the "open adoption" promised by agencies and adopters are NOT legally enforcable, and therefore meaningless. Adopters often promise mothers that they will maintain a relationship with her only to slam the door shut as soon as the adoption is final. And the only reason open adoptions are promised is NOT because Ms. Rigge OR any other adoptee pushed for them (agencies don't care what we think) it's because the needed the extra leverage to separate mothers from their children, and this LIE often does the trick. We are no longer children who can be manipulated, Ms. Coke.
Give Ms. Coke her sundae, and give me my birth certificate!
