Should biological parents be able to contact the child they gave away in the case of a closed adoption?
A young mother made the difficult decision to give her baby up for adoption thirty years ago, She was never allowed to hold her child and only briefly saw her daughter through a window as the baby was held up by a nurse to the glass. The mother always regretted her decision and has tried for years to get to know her child. But, in Georgia, as in many states, adoptions are closed and once a mother gives up her rights, she has no access, official or otherwise, to her child. We hear a lot about children trying to find their birth parents and the rights they should be afforded, but should parents have similar opportunities to reverse, or at least modify, a decision many made at a very young age?
