i would just like to know how you would go about getting any family history (not talking names etc.) just a medical history, to know what to look out for etc. i had a closed adoption at birth in the state of pennsylvania. is there anyway i can get any info? thanks!
In my state, there are adopted-persons rights groups, one of which I think is called ******* Nation. If you google the topic of adoptee rights, you should come up with a list of organizations; look at their websites and see which ones seem the most well-informed and well run. (I'd shy away from ones that seem highly emotional.) Good luck, there is bound to be some way to get medical information.
