Support and Counseling for Mothers and Adult
Adoptees who were Separated at Birth
dealing with adoption-separation issues:
groups for adoption-separation
and adoption reunion issues
sealed adoption records, reuniting "birth" parents
and adopted son or daughter.
Some additional reading:
Note: There is a large market for newborn babies for American
adoption. Adoption "counselors" in North America
like to refer to expectant parents as "birthparents"
or "birthmothers", while calling the unrelated person
hoping to adopt a "parent". The objective of this
so-called "respectful adoption language" is to make
the acquisition of healthy newborn babies by infertile people
seem "normal". The euphemism "adoption"
is used to deflect attention from the reality - this is a
transfer of human babies from loving (if naive or pressured)
relatives to customers.
The misleading, disrespectful terms "birthmother",
"birthfather" and "birthparents" are used
on this website for search engine purposes only. The terms
"mother", "father", "single parent",
" family member" and "natural mother"
are accurate, respectful, and nonderogatory terms. See " by Diane Turski for more
Other misleading, dishonest terms include "biological"
child, "genetic" sister, "surrogate" mother,
egg "donor", or sperm "donor". These terms
are used to make human beings appear to be unrelated to their
own family members. Why would a "donated" child
(or adult adoptee) wish to learn more about - or contact -
her "biological" sister or mother? Why would she
say after reunion that it "feels like" her "biological
sister" (or other relative) is her sister (or other relative)?
Because true families are created by nature, not by government
edicts or by the adoption or "sale" of babies.

because in infant adoption geneological connections
to family are broken
and family trees demolished.
