But it blew my socks off again to hear this
My state will allow adoptees born in 2000 and after full access to their OBC at 21.
Good. Most are open adoptions nowadays anyways- no big deal right?
I've been thinking all along that at least these new adoptees won't have any problems getting 'theirs" and FINALLY the legislators are getting it. At least for some...
NOT so much. I learned yesterday that Mothers are being counseled to sign contact vetos AT RELINQUISHMENT! Gasp! If there is a contact veto- NO OBC for these kids.
WTH? I do get that a small number of relinquishing mothers would choose a closed adoption.
But isn't no identify shared between A & B parents enough? Do these asswipe SW's inform the Moms that at anytime- they can rescind the veto? I don't trust them to do so.
And I can't believe the #%£¥* agencies have come up with this shady solution.
When will they give up those secrets and lies- forever and for all?
