We at The Good Adoptee believe that, upon reaching the age of 18, every adopted individual and their descendants should have access to not only their original birth certificates, but to any and all documents and records pertaining to their adoption, relinquishment and foster care. Adoptees' access to their original birth certificates should be identical to that of non-adopted citizens.
We invite you to join us as allies in this fight.
