NYC Press Conference for Open Records for Adoptees
Press Conference for the Bill of Adoptee Rights from Flower City Media on Vimeo.
If you can get through this without getting a tear in your eye, you're a stronger person than I am. If you are in any state that has a bill in the works get involved!
I'm going to email both David Weprin and Richard Gottfried and thank them for their support. And by the way, Unsealed Initiative is collecting money (and size donation welcome, and we mean any amount) for Weprin's election campaign. He is a staunch supporter and we need him in Albany. If you have any NY connection with your adoption, please contact Joyce Bahr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have around $400 at this point; I'd love to see us get to a thousand. And check out UI's page too: Unsealed Initiative.
On another note, I just read a blog by an adopter looking for a second child and she writes she feels
incredibly "sad" for me. Argument going on under earlier blog: Why I'm not celebrating "Birth Mother's Day"
It was weird to read, I admit. --lorraine
