"Many people who are adopted feel this great void. You don't have any history or heritage," said Greiner of Bastard Nation. "You feel as if you were born under a rock or dropped off by a space alien. You have a right to know where you came from."

And who or what guarantees that "right to know"???

The child will later want to know but she will be alive and with adopted parents that love her. Maybe they ought to have some sealed document that mother's can fill out, if they want to, that can't be opened or given to the child until 18.

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.
