I didn't have to have any counseling to see if I'm stable enough to hold the historical facts of my birth. I paid the $20- and waited just a couple weeks and- it's mine! Legally!
But you know what they kinda cheated my mom.
What were they thinking in releasing it to me when Mom has been promised at least twice now that her identity would be protected from me.
Once when she surrendered me at birth to a closed adoption and then AGAIN when my confidential intermediary went 'discreetly' to her front door and got her written
refusal of the disclosure her identity to me. Her wishes are on RECORD!!
Quote " the confidential intermediary shall report the refusal to the court and shall refrain from further and subsequent inquiry without judicial approval. "
Did they just pull another flim flam on these "promises" they make to Mothers who don't want to be found??!?
I think they did.
Assholes that sell empty promises and LIES in adoption suck!
