Should Adopted Children Be Allowed To Locate Their Biological Parents?

A touchy topic these days is whether or not the option should be open

for adopted children to be able to locate their biological parents. There are

some many circumstances for each different case that it is hard to know where

exactly I stand on this topic. Over all, I do not think that you should locate

your biological parents.

There are many reasons for this. For one thing, learning information on

the person who gave you up is a long drawn out process. It can be very

emotionally painful, as well. For whatever reason you were given up for

adoption; death, financial problems, to young, etc it?s private information and

should remain that way. The decision was made a long time ago because it was the

best one at that time.

Think about the birth parents involved. What happens after you spend a

few months or more of your life trying to locate these people only to have a

door shut in your face? How would you feel if that were to happen? The chances

of this happening are pretty good. Yes, there are happy reunions on talk shows

that turn out for the better, but that is not always the reality. These people

gave up their birth rights many years ago and should not go back on that. They

have moved on with their lives and might not want to be reminded what could have

been. So many hurt feelings and feelings of guilt could come flying back and

then put more of a burden on both of your lives.

There is another factor to think about in this situation. How is your

family suppose to react to this and how are they supposed to feel? This is the

loving family that took you in as there own for all these years, are they

supposed to be fully supportive of your choice now? This is an extremely hard

position to be put in because they could be afraid of losing you and dealing

with this change will be very difficult.

These are just a few things that you should strongly consider before

attempting to locate your biological family. I strongly advise against it, but

obviously, it is your decision. Good luck in what you decide is best.
