open records

My husband sent me an email about our state moving to have adoptees have the right to get the OBC. However, birthparents can choose to have their privacy protected. I imagine some birthparents will want that to remained sealed but I think the most will be happy that the truth of birth can be told and given to the children now adults that wish to seek this information.
Read the news story here. I think this has been a long time coming and I am happy to see that the rights of many have been given back to those who seek the information of where and who they came from. I hope other states follow. Link
