New York State has cleared the way for adopted children to view their birth certificates. This allows persons over the age of 18 to see the names of their biological parents. This has been a long time coming.
My sons Tommy and Bobby were adopted while I was serving in the U.S. Navy in the 1970’s. I had no way of providing for them and had no family or friends who could help after my wife left us. I was forced to agree to adoption.
I would like to see them and tell them it was not their fault that they were adopted. I still love you Tommy and Bobby!
