#660 Roots run deep..

Having a family member who was adopted, I personally believe that adoptees have a right to know who are their biological parents and do think it’s absurd that it’s even a question as to whether adoptees should be afforded the opportunity to obtain original birth certificates and know their true identities. 

Birth parents I also believe have a right to privacy, but by no means do I think that they should be able to have their identities hidden from their biological children. As individuals, a birth parent has a right to refuse a phone call and ignore an email or a letter, just like anyone else who does not want to correspond with someone. But hiding the truth is not the way to protect a birth parent’s right to privacy. Most adoptees I know and one being my brother, has searched for his biological parents to no avail. With ageing parents, the time is getting closer to never knowing. Adopted children yearn for their roots. They run into obstacles, but they keep going. They want to know. They need to know. In most cases, when they find their biological mother or father, they reach out just to understand and to see what other family they may have. They want to establish a connection, but they are also respectful of the responses they get in return.

Hiding the truth is not the way to protect a birth parent’s right to privacy. When I think of people who are adopted, I compare it to a massive tree. It's strong and unmoving because its roots run deep, however the emotions are like the deep roots of the tree. They pervade the land and are, in a way, one with it. Deep running emotions define a person and affect the ways they act. A person without the knowledge of their past history, origin, culture is like a tree without roots and will act out. 

How can they grow and develop if they have no knowledge of where they have come from, otherwise they will decay inside and become part of the land…
