1985 article from The Odessa American. Director of the Direct Adoption Center of Midland cites adoptive couple infertility as the reason for confidentiality in #adoption placements. This was 1985 and we are still, in 2019, dispelling myths about birth parent anonymity.
Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - The future of the Indian Child Welfare Act https://www.nativeamericacalling.com/tuesday-april-2-2019-the-future-of-the-indian-child-welfare-act/
The Indian Child Welfare Act has some tough opponents in the courts and in the court of public opinion. ICWA proponents suffered a setback in the Brackeen vs Bernhardt case. Both sides just presented oral arguments in the appeal. We will go live from the annual Protecting Our Children National American Indian Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect to hear first-hand stories from those affected by ICWA. We'll also get expert analysis about the possible trajectory for the 40-year-old law going forward.
It is overwhelmingly evident that we are nowhere near achieving equality for adoptees within the adoption narrative...#Adoptee #Adoptees #Adoption #AmplifyAdoptees #FlipTheScript pic.twitter.com/psfH6cWYt1— Christina (@DiaryAdoptee) March 30, 2019
We are denied OUR OWN information, history, family relationships, health info; updates, identities, genealogy, files, records, equality & rights. We have lost SO much, many of us from birth, like OUR traits, similarities, coincidences & biological quirks also, due to #adoption— akaalison🇮🇪☘️ (@akaalison1) March 31, 2019
