Adopted children in CT may soon be able to learn identity of their birth mother
Children who are adopted in Connecticut could soon be able to find out the identity of their birth mother. As it stands now, no matter what their age, adopted children are not able to get the name of their birth mother. On Tuesday, the state Senate passed a bill that would allow adopted children to learn the name of their biological mothers when they turn 18. It would apply only to children born on or after next October 1. Senator Bill Finch (D-Bridgeport) is disappointed the bill doesn't make the records available to anyone who was adopted prior to that. Finch, who was adopted, says he will continue to fight so people like him can get access to their birth information, but adds the bill is a good start. The bill now heads to the House for approval.
