I've seen it posted by multiple sources that 6 states have open records access to adoptees. I can't find what 6 states anyone is actually referring to though.
What are these 6 states? The only ones I can think of are....
Tennessee- Records are non-ID only and BM can revoke records in case of rape/incest.
Delaware-Records may be downgraded to non-identifying by birth mother's request
I don't find DE or TN to be open at all.
Thanks for your help!
From the Bastard Nation website: The BASTARDIZED states of Alaska, Oregon, Kansas, Alabama, New Hampshire and Maine are the only U.S. states where adult adoptees have unrestricted access to their own original birth records! Join the fight to stamp the seal of supreme Bastardy on the rest of the nation!! I only count five. Does the website need updating? Are there six?
