Oklahoma Adoption Task Force

A couple of years ago, a couple of adoption agencies and attorneys got into trouble over their business practices with adoptive parents. Well at that time, an adoption task force was established to address changes needed in the adoption system in Oklahoma. Today there was an article in the Oklahoman about this task force. They are wanting to know how many adoptions occur in Oklahoma. They are also wanting to know who should receive this information.

What about the adoptees in this state? Why isn't the rights of those adoptees being restored to them? Why are they just concentrating on the number of adoptions? I agree that they need to be concentrating on the fee structures of adoption agencies and attorneys but lets not forget those of us who are adopted. We need our rights restored to us.

We are your sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. We are also your friends and coworkers. We are also your veterans. It is time to restore our right to access documents that the state of Oklahoma has on us. Please Oklahoma state legislators consider this as well.
