I have 2 very close friends in different states that are adopted. I have discussed this subject with each of them at length, especially after we came mothers ourselves, and they both say the exact same thing. As far as they are concerned they have loving parents and they don't feel that void that other peopole talk about. They believe their families are the people who raised them. In fact both have said they would never betray their parents by looking for their birth families.

I understand the need or quest for a medical history in anonymous adoption cases. But, it is not an unalienable right to have one. It's beautiful that your friends honor their parents. After reading about Sheila's diabolical (Calif.) Bill, I am thinking quite abit about the deeper and wiser meanings of the Biblical commandment. Honoring one's parents truly reflects upon oneself. Also, in Huxley's BRAVE NEW WORLD, the concepts as well as the very words referencing family, parent, mother, father were OBSCENE and FORBIDDEN. Sheila is a sick person.

You can add my vote to theirs. In fact, my mother asked once if I wanted to find my "parents". I said as far as I was concerned, the people who had done the work were my parents. I don't know that I see it as a "betrayal", but in my experience people go looking for their biological parents when they somehow feel something is missing from their adoptive experience.
