About Me
  Introduce yourself to Joan
Activist Aspirations Rabid
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Wild Fact About Me Well hated by most of my adoptive family and natural family because I dared to go public with adoptees civil rights. See my website: Buy my book --- Forbidden Family: A Half Orphan's Account of Her Adoption, Reunion and Social Activism at this link:
l.aspx?BookId=SKU-000137652. Thank you!!!
My Philosophy Several: Every adoptee has two sets of real parents.
1 birth certificate 1 adoption certificate = adoption truth.

Respect and honesty and dignity in adoption for the adoptee's sake.

Every adoptee has the basic human and civil right to the truth of their origin.

Family Preservation, Kinship Care, and Guardianship should replace adoption. Adoption should be made illegal. If a child cannot be raised by her parents of birth or other blood kin, then Guardianship provides a legal home and protections while keeping the child's identity and family intact. Visitation should be mandatory with the child's family. No child should suffer the indignation of the government seizing her/his birth certificate, sealing it, and replacing it with a new, amended, false Certificate of Live Birth upon adoption.
What Gives Me Hope My two young adult children.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why Dr. Rene Hoksbergen of The University of Utrecht in The Netherlands. Because he cared enough to see the importance of my life's story to help change the institution of adoption in America, and worldwide. His belief in me as a person and as a professional is what kept me alive.
