Birth certificate access is a civil rights issue, NewsOk.com
We have copies of our sons' original birth certificates. We have the first and last names of their birth parents. We had access to this information because my husband, an attorney, had full access to the legal documents as their adoptions were finalized. We never wanted our children's biological past to be a hidden mystery. It is their past, they have every right to know.
Legislation needs to be changed. Records need to be opened for adult adoptees seeking answers to their biological history.
