California Adoption Bill

California Adoption Bill, you fooled me.

I feel like an idiot.

A few posts ago, I wrote about reunion vis a vis the California Adoption Bill (Assembly Bill 372.) Yay, I thought, more birthparents and adoptees will be reunited. I think I got an email from some nefarious person or organization touting what a good idea this was and that only encouraged my naive stupidity. There was a clause in the bill (now in some legislative limbo) that required birthparent consent. Birth parent consent  is a huge impediment to open records. The bill was a trick. A ploy to get in the way of open records.

I’m in the middle of a divorce, writing the thesis for my MFA, trying to rise out of the ashes once again and my brain is somewhat broken.
