Buy a Chinese Baby?! Read on.
This blog has been languishing much like the effort to unseal adoption records in many U.S. States.
Writing has kept me traveling since my last post, and many of the places I’ve traveled through and spent time in have variations of the same terrible adoption laws I’ve commented on in this blog. It was depressing to belabor the point.
So far in 2009, I’ve spent time in Vermont, New York, Maryland, Minnesota, Iowa (where my son was adopted) Nebraska & Oregon. Only Oregon has open records. One state out of all the states I’ve mentioned. I’ve also driven through Nevada (where gambling & prostitution are legal 24 hours a day) Utah & Colorado. It’s a big country and the prospects of birth parents and children reuniting are sparser than opportunities for a gourmet meal along the interstate.
