Re: “Adopting Reform

Another point.... I personally know of 6 families in my children's school who chose not to tell their children that they were adopted. In some cases, the children are TRAs (trans-racial adoptees). But it's their LEGAL right as adoptive parents, so the school is required to support this deception. I have found that all of the adoptive families at the school are completely ignorant of the mountains of research that has been done in the last 50 years on the subject. Many actually teach their children that their genetic heritage has now magically transferred to those of the adoptive family. Only a few of the parents understand that adoption issues don't disappear once the paperwork is signed. The rest are baffled at normal adoptee behaviors that are readily explained, if only they'd done some research. This is in 2009. Things haven't changed as much as you claim.

Re: “Adopting Reform

You perpetuate the lies when you say things like "rights to confidentiality that have long been lobbied for by birth parents" (hint: do a little investigating and see if you can find even one example of this anywhere in the country). Meanwhile, you make it sound as if the adoptees (and their allies) who have any qualms about the illegal and unethical human rights violations against them in this country are merely the ungrateful ones, and few in number. You owe a retraction and an apology for the lies and the insults.
