NJ: ‘She asked him to sit. You’re adopted, she said.’ (Includes video)
Asbury Park Press – December 24, 2016
For the first time come Jan. 1, adoptees in New Jersey – potentially as many as 300,00 over the decades – will be able to see their original birth certificates. New Jersey will become the 14th state to allow open access to original birth certificates for most if not all adopted people. Two of those states – Alaska and Kansas – never closed their records. Tennessee in 1996 became the first state to adopt laws to open the records for adoptees.
