Originally Aired: March 5, 2005

Some adopted children are driven to seek out their birth parents while others are just as committed to leave that in the past. What rights do adopted children have to learn about their birth parents, and what rights do they have to prevent a birth parent from making contact when the child wants none of it.

Guests:

  • Jan Stocks . A family law specialist and partner in the law firm of Stocks & Fenton, LLP.
  • Wayne Carp . Professor of History at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington. He's author of three books on adoption. His latest is called Adoption Politics: Bastard Nation and Ballot Initiative 58.
