North Carolina reunion of mother and son

Family reunited after decades

November 9, 2011

Three years after North Carolina changed its laws to give adoptees access to more information about their parents, families are still reuniting at a steady pace.

In the video above, Sheeka Strickland introduces us to a mom and her son who had lived completely separate lives for decades.

Before 2008, state laws prohibited most information from being released to either party, even with consent. The law changed again a year ago to allow people to get a death certificate from relatives who passed away.

Thursday night at 10, Sheeka will introduce us to a woman who used an Internet search angel to find her birth mother. Copyright © 2011, WGHP-TV

What strikes me is how expensive it is in North Carolina for an adoptee or natural parent to make connections - and there is a backlog of those requesting reunion. This has to be corrected - it should cost us NOTHING - we need reunion to heal....Trace
