We are ALARMed that ADOPTED ADULTS are unable to obtain a current medical history - especially in light of 3000 known genetic diseases!
We are ALARMed that ADOPTED ADULTS are often given false and misleading information about their background by social workers, attorneys, and other "helping professionals" in the field of adoption!
We are ALARMed that ADOPTED ADULTS must pay agency fees to receive non-identifying information; state fees to be placed on a state registry; and attorney fees to petition the court system in an effort to receive what is rightfully their - their IDENTIFYING information!
We are ALARMed that confidentiality laws have stripped ADOPTED ADULTS of their own, their childrens’ and their grandchildrens’ entire genealogical history and genetic heritage creating a serious malady known as ancestricide!
We are ALARMed that in a free and democratic society, these basic, human, God-given, constitutional rights, promised to all Americans, are denied to all ADOPTED ADULTS!copyright 1989 ALARM Network
