Go to: Adoption and religion (UK)

ChristineMMoran's Avatar Jump to comment 60 by ChristineMMoran

Being adopted is a trauma. The catholic church in Ireland and Austraila just aoplogised for forced adoptions in the name of religion. There are plenty of orphans in the world and they should stay with their own people or their own families. Not knowing anyone who looks like you or fitting in is torture.

I know this because I lived it and am an atheist. Adoption causes people to lose the thread of family continuity and connection with their ancestors. Religion is seen as one of these connections through tradition.

Go to: Adopted or abducted?

ChristineMMoran's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by ChristineMMoran

I am the author of the new book on adoption called " The Legacies of Trees". Adoption of Abduction is a very real story and I have heard about this for many years. The shame, stigma and secrecy of adoption comes from the belief they were saving the child from the slur of illegitimacy. The sealing of records is a short lived bad practice fueled by the desire of security by pre adoptive parents. Big money went into changing these laws and 46 states do not allow adoptees to have access to their own real birth certificate.

This is only the tip of the iceberg there is a whole generation of stolen people born after the baby scoop era. I have been a search angel since 1996 and the overwhelming majority of birth mothers do not want to remain unknown to their adopted children.
