November is National Adoption Awareness Month

And, unfortunately, most Americans are still not aware of the fact that adoption has also erased the identities of millions of people in this country by way of amended (i.e., "fake") birth certificates issued after their adoptions were finalized in court.

I've had three.

Can someone explain this one to me again because I've never really gotten a straight answer about why this has to happen?
