It is important for all adoptees to know their ancestry, VERY important. Please read this great post on Lost Daughters (click on title) by an Illinois adoptee.
Sadly, the adoption world continues to ignore adoptees in this regard, and fails to see the importance of our medical history which is clearly so necessary and essential to every human being - yet sealed adoption records leaves us adoptees out in the cold and in the dark.
Some day, one day soon, the world will wake up. I mean it. One day the world will see adoption for what it truly is - a farce, ridiculous, barbaric and demeaning for the adoptee.
I wait for that day.
