How would you like to be the bureaucrat who published that for all to see?
And then... how would you like to be someone who doesn't see the folly
But in the name of dialog, have we reached the tipping point where the
privacy of the birth mother is superseded by the curiosity of the child
to know from whence he or she came? I can see going forth, but what
happened to "grandfather rights" and past promises made? Not being
adopted, of course, I have no chips on this table. Just curious.
