We call upon all state legislatures to restore, unconditionally, the right of adopted adults to access their unaltered original birth records.
If you have already signed this petition when it was posted last year, thank you. Please spread the word and recruit as many of your friends to sign as you can.
This time an alteration in the programming of Change.org wil not allow me to leave it open to all 50 states. So the default I selected was Maryland. Feel free to use the letter however you would like in your state. I am really disappointed about that but we can start 42 other petitions, one each for the tates that still have sealed records.
And while you are here, vote to put our cause at the top of the Change.org agenda. Go to:

For some reason, this link does not work consistently. I ghave contacted Change.org about it and heard nothing. However, you can cut and paste it in your browser and it will take you there via a round-about route.
