Does anyone know if Joe Soll - adoptee who speaks out on adoption issues and reform - had lousy adoptive parents?
Not saying that would be the only reason he feels the way he does, but was just curious...

Never heard of him. But good for him for telling some more truths about adoption. If he did have bad adoptive parents though, look out, because I'm sure people are criticising his message as "negative" because he had a "rare" bad experience because god knows no adoption experiences are "bad"!

Joe Soll, an adoptee, is one of the leading adoption reformists. He lead a march on Washington to open adoption records. I don't know about his aparents, but I agree with Southernroots, adoptees that have great adoptive parents can be pro-adoption reform. My personal verdict on Joe Soll is out. I read his book "Adoption Healing: ... a path to recovery for mothers who lost children to adoption". It didn't speak to me at all. I think it was only for bmoms from the baby scoop era.
