I always knew I was adopted. I was born in 1957, so this was during the Baby-scoop era. Adoption was, and still is closed. I have no info at all as to where and to whom I was born. I was brought home by my A-parents at about 2 months, adoption was finalized after 3 years. The thinking at the time was that secrecy was the best way to go, my parents (now quite elderly) still believe that. I never asked any questions as a child living the quintessential 1950's life, but now there are nagging questions and I really can't ask anyone. My A-parents would be devastated. My state still has closed records. I have no where to begin looking for answers to my questions. Why did/do people think that secrecy and closed records were a good thing? When will this be changed?
I was born Erica Alyssa... didn't know that til I found my bmom about a year ago. I've never had much of an issue with being an adoptee til I found my bfam at first. It's really hard adjusting to life with two families when you feel you owe so much to both of them.
Anyone else experiencing a difficult merging of families?
I was born sandra but i changed my name to amanda after becoming adopted. i now have found my birth brother but i can't get in touch with him because he has no number and the adresses might not be his either does anyone know what i should do.
