Access Connecticut is a grassroots organization of adoptees, first/birth parents, adoptive parents, adoptive parents and adoption professionals dedicated to restoring the right of every adult adoptee born in Connecticut to access their true, original birth certificate, a right which all non-adopted citizens have under Connecticut law. In 2014, Access Connecticut led lobbying efforts that resulted in legislation allowing access for adoptees whose adoptions were finalized after Oct. 1, 1983. Prior to 1975, all Connecticut-born adoptees had that right. Today, however, that is not the case. Connecticut-born adoptees whose adoptions were finalized before Oct. 1, 1983 are denied access to their biological heritage and medical information -- discriminated against simply because they are adopted. Now the group is working to join the ever-increasing number of states (including Connecticut’s New England neighbors of Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island) that allow unrestricted access to adult adoptees.
