She's Adopted

They just didn't tell her

Adoption Shouldn’t be a Secret

on February 11, 2013

I would like to say thank you to all of you for supporting this page. It’s an honor for me to get to know you, little by little.

As some of you may know, my cause goes beyond our frontiers… I not only fight for the Adoptee Rights here in the United States but also in Brazil, where I was born and adopted.

Adoptee Rights in Brazil are pretty null. Like me, thousands of people are illegally adopted everyday. The existing law openly protects the parents. There are no support groups, there is no consideration to the Adoptees that are kept in the dark for years until the truth emerges somehow… And what is left? The same feelings Late Discovery Adoptees from around the world experience: Disappointment, loss of trust, discrimination, criticism, abandonment, and pain.

I’ve created a sister page here on FB last December and just this past week, I was able to start working on it. So please, if you know any Portuguese speakers, let them know about this resource. There are not many resources for adoptees available in Brazil. Please help to connect any one that might benefit from it 🙂
