Adopted in the UK

The life of a UK adoptee

*waves hands around ineffectually*

It is absolutely mind-boggling that despite the masses of data demonstrating that adoptees fare far better when they’re not completely cut off from THEIR OWN families, that the UK Government is going against this.

One can only imagine that this is – as in America – spurred on by those adopters who would far rather own the kid/s they’re raising, and pretend that we truly are “as if born unto”, negating entirely that we actually do spring forth from SOMEONE ELSE’S loins, and attempting to mold their captive… sorry, adoptee into their own image.

Why? We’ve already demonstrated that this is massively harmful to the adoptee, and does nothing but add to the trauma that adoptees already face by being severed from THEIR OWN families.

Researching Reform

At a time when the internet seems to be filled with the news of increased contact for birth parents, this latest revelation not only sits uncomfortably with the current status quo (that of widening a child’s connection to their genetic legacy) but also seems, for now, highly punitive and reminiscent of the strange double standards we see too often in the family justice system.

What are we talking about? Well, the government hopes to unveil new reforms which will give the courts the power to prevent biological parents from contacting their children, for example through internet sites like Facebook and other social media websites.

Even more startlingly, the new reforms will include the presumption that there should be no ongoing contact once the child has been adopted and will only be overturned in ‘exceptional circumstances’, which would require the birth parents to make a ‘convincing case’ that their…

See it!

Today, I am sharing a link to the heartbreaking trailer for the movie “Adopted: For the Life of Me”. The movie aired on PBS, and while there are no future airings currently listed on the PBS site, you can purchase the DVD here.

When you visit filmmaker Jean Strauss’ site, be sure to read about her upcoming movie project (she needs moola to complete it), and about her significant work as an advocate for adoptee rights.

If Jean’s name sounds familiar, it is probably because she wrote a great search & reunion book titled,  “Birthright: the Guide to Search and Reunion”.

The film previewed in this trailer, explores the lifelong affects of never knowing your real name, heritage, or medical information. It presents the stories of real people, who late in life, are still living in the darkness of sealed records.

Dare I even attempt to try to blog daily for a month? Will failing to write for 30 whole days cripple me even further than PTSD has already knocked me? I have 13 days left to try to prepare myself for it, but that 13 days is already 13 days I’m dreading *because* I’ve crashed down so low already. Maybe it’ll help. Maybe it won’t. All I do know is that adoption’s already fucked my life over, so surely I can devote a month to addressing this. Catharsis? I hope so, because I can’t get any help anywhere else – ‘cept from my ever-loving fellow bastards.

In a frightening example of how the state is tightening its grip around the free Internet, it has emerged that You Tube is complying with thousands of requests from governments to censor and remove videos that show protests and other examples of citizens simply asserting their rights, while also deleting search terms by government mandate.

The latest example is You Tube’s compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

Peake was ruling on a case involving Roger Hayes, former member of UKIP, who has refused to pay council tax, both as a protest against the government’s treasonous activities in sacrificing Britain to globalist interests and as a result of Hayes clearly proving that council tax is illegal.

Hayes has…

Cannock SS do this, yet they point blank refuse to help the adoptees they’ve already created (e.g. me) with the traumas of adoption.

Sick, twisted bastards!
