HAVE YOU WROTE YOUR LOCAL PAPER AND STATE LEGISLATOR.

I have emailed the Indiana state legislators twice so far. Did you know that Illinois, Michigan, and Missouri are all considering or have introduced legislation concerning adoptee rights? What are you doing? Here is your chance.

Dear Indiana legislator:

My name is Amy K. Burt. I am an Indiana adoptee. I am asking you to write and sponsor an adoptee rights bill.

Here is the report of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute that should be great interest to you. I am not sure if you have seen it. As I see it now, the state of Indiana is violating our constitutional rights. The state is violating my fourth amendment rights. Everyone knows that the right to privacy is about the right to be free from governmental intrusion.

The links to this report: http://www.adoptioninstitute.org/publications/2007_11_For_Records.pdf
Another vital report to your decision is this one too:http://www.adoptioninstitute.org/publications/2007_01_Birthparent_Study_All.pdf

With this kind of statistical information out there, why don't adoptees have access? If we are no longer protecting adoptees, natural parents, and adoptive parents, who are we protecting?

Please change the laws. Its our right that you are violating. We want it back.

Amy K. Burt

You can write all the Indiana legislators at this address.
