In a perfect world, no adoptee would be denied his/her original Birth Certificate because of an affidavit of non-disclosure signed by the birthmother. But these affidavits are few in the states that have opened up reform, so why should the rights of many Minnesota adoptees be denied because of the denied rights of a few? Each bill has a 2-year cycle and is continued into the next session with its current status (same bill # and co-authors, passing through two hearings), so we will resume at the next legislative session. In the interim, we educate, educate, educate on our strong position and welcome all opposition arguments, like the strong one from Basterette. Thanks.
