Canada's Residential Schools

The religious organizations that operated the schools — the Anglican Church of Canada, Presbyterian Church in Canada, United Church of Canada, Jesuits of English Canada and some Catholic groups — in 2015 expressed regret for the “well-documented” abuses. The Catholic Church has never offered an official apology, something that Trudeau and others have repeatedly called for.

The 60s Scoop Lawsuit

This is the blog and website for Canadian First Nations Adoptees to get the latest updates and information concerning the class action for survivors of the Sixties Scoop. If you are a First Nations adoptee, you can contact them and add your name to the lawsuit. One of these days, America will have its own class action lawsuit... (that's my prayer it happens in my lifetime).

  1. Blessings, I am a Native American who was adopted in NYC. I was born on the 30th of August, 1967, and very little info was provided to me in regards to my adoption. I know my birth name, the hospital that I was born in (which no longer exits), and the adoption agency that handled my adoption (which has also closed it's doors for good). My adoptive parents both expressed to me that I was Natice American from either the Souix tribe or the Choctaw tribe. I would love the opportunity to really know my ethnic origin, and meet my parents, so that we can share information. I have been on a long and tiresome journey striving to gather info pertaining to my birth and adoption, but with both the hospital and adoption agency closed, where do I turn? It was my understanding that my biological mother intended to come back for me, but she had another child, and this probably made it much more difficult for a very young mother to raise two sons by herself, so she thought it best to remain with my adoptive parents. I would beg to differ, but the decision was hers not mine. Many questions arise when I reflect upon my heritage and history...Questions that for now must remain unanswered. One question comes to mind at the present moment, and that question is,"Where do I turn now?"

Did you know?

New York’s 4o-year battle for OBC access ended when on January 15 2020, OBCs were opened to all New York adoptees upon request without restriction. In only three days, over 3,600 adoptees filed for their record of birth. The bill that unsealed records was passed 196-12.

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.
