I am a birth parent who would like to go on the record as being in favor of AB 3907, the opening of adoption records.
Since you have printed editorials against this bill, I thought you should know that, while I complied with the social and religious mores of the 1960s in deference to my parents, they now say that in this day they would have sanctioned the keeping of my child.
In the last 25 years since my daughter's birth, I have never kept her a secret from any of my friends or acquaintances. Because of my parents, I have not gone out of my way to publicize her birth among all of my relatives; but I have told some of them, and I'm sure the word has spread.
I'm not sorry about or ashamed of Mary Therese, and should she ever come into my life again, I shall sound her existence to all the world.
I am honored and graced to have contributed to the miracle of her life, and I always, from the time of her birth on, wanted to be found by her.
I for one want my daughter to know, when and if she ever asks, that I was always proud of her.
JUDITH A. MOLLNER
