"Opening Closed Books on Adoption"

Hot on the heels of the sensational story of the twins who recently married (is no one else outraged that they were adopted out to separate families in the first place?!?) comes a phenomenally level-headed article written by Jennifer Gish of The Times Union in my hometown of Albany, New York.

Published on Sunday, "Opening Closed Books on Adoption" outlines the issues faced by Sharon Casey Smith, a 43-year-old woman from Colonie, as she continues the search for her mother that began in 2000.

""I just want to know her. Sometimes you feel like you're not connected, like you don't have any background," says Smith."

[Unfortunately, the article has since been torn down.]
