Why are they making it so hard for us to get our records that we
have every right to, especially medically?
I make all the phone calls but end up getting different info every
time i do call even the same places. I wish they would get together
on this and decide just one way to get the job done. It makes me
soooo mad! I hate the way the laws are set. What about our rights,
our children's rights and their families rights to know information
about themselves? Doesnt anyone out there care???
In my situation even if I do get on registries, it may not mean
anything because of the ways the laws are that if my birth parents
did not give consent to have any more than non-id given out and/or
they are not around anymore, I could still run into a road block
because despite court orders my records would still remain sealed.
There HAS to be a way around this!
I was born in Illinois but the adoption was finalized in Missouri.
There are 3 reasons why I would want certain records... (1)my female
issues, (2) my son's chest deformity that is known to be heriditary
and he has a speech impediment, (3) to see if my husband and I are
closely related, as in brother and sister since his birth father
used to drive over the road for a trucking company and may have had
a trist with someone in Illinois that could be my birth mom...then
we could trace down why our son had the defect and if he can pass it
along to his kids, etc.
I was told today that I do have valid reasons to open my records
even tho another family was denied when they asked for records to be
open even in a life or death circumstance.
Please forgive me for "ranting" about this but I feel I am grasping
for needles in a haystack that may not even be reachable by any
means. This is so depressing....
I am looking for anyone that can help in any way, even if it is only
to let me know you know what it feels like being on this side and
you understand....I just need to know someone is out there....on my
