Thank goodness for those who are not afraid to speak out and stand up for what they believe and for the sacrifices they made.
Twenty years ago today one of our own went to prison for the “crime” of reuniting adoptees and birth families. Sandy Musser is considered to be the civil rights pioneer for the adoptive rights movement. We should have been celebrating her efforts for reconnecting families. But instead the government used their flagrant abuse of power, laced with lies, to carry out an indecent indictment.
Let us never forget those who have suffered in their efforts to bring reform to the discrimination of adoptees by sealing their birth records forever.
