I have been reunited with my birth family after being adopted in 1957 and I believe all adults who were adopted have the right to their orginal birth certificate after all we are US citzens, vote, work and pay taxes like all others who weren't adopted, yet till this day too many States still deny us our birth right we are treated like second class citzens. I thank God for ALMA ( Adoptee Liberty Movement Association) which was found by Florence Ann Fisher if it wouldn't have been for ALMA and their resources and volunteers I would have never been able to find my identity and health background and birth family I feel like a whole person now. Fortunately I was born in a State that has partial open records for adopt adults who's adoption took place before Jan. 1, 1964. And was legaly able to obtain my original birth certificate. This state needs to extend this law to all people born and adopted who have reached the age of 18. I would also like to thank ABC for bring the story of the Senator in Maine who was also adopted and manage to change the law in Maine so that others who were born there and adopted can obtain their orginal birth certificates. Hopefully since you aired this story nation wide it will get thee attention of other senators to get these laws changed in their states like Michigan, Florida, Wisconsin and so on.
