On November 14th, New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation allowing adoptees for the first time to receive a certified copy of their birth certificate when they turn 18-years-old, ensuring that all adult New York adoptees will have the same unimpeded right to information about their birth and biological parents.
In Governor Cuomo’s words, “Where you came from informs who you are, and every New Yorker deserves access to the same birth records – it’s a basic human right. For too many years, adoptees have been wrongly denied access to this information and I am proud to sign this legislation into law and correct this inequity once and for all.”
I am also pleased to share with you the video teaser for my memoir, Young Love ~ An Adoptee’s Memoir. You may have already seen it on my Facebook timeline. All the photos were taken and developed by my beloved grandfather.
I now have links to 3 social media sites. They are the pink circles above, right under the website title: Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
In my next posting, I will have information on where my memoir will be available!!
Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends and family!
