Married vs. "unmarried" - Pregnancy, Birth and Falling in Love with Your Baby



Do not adopt. Fight for legislation for adoption alternatives such as shared-family care, kinship care, and guardianship.

Join an organization such as Origins, OriginUSA or Origins Canada

    Sponsor a young expectant mother in your community.  Give her financial and moral support in keeping her baby.  Give her shelter and food, while NOT making her feel obliged to give you her baby in any way.  Get to know her family and encourage her parents to welcome their new grandchild.

Support your son or daughter in keeping their baby.  Celebrate the new life they are bringing into the family.  Don't let your grandchild be lost to adoption! 

Encourage adoptees to search for their natural parents.  Encourage governments to open up adoption records and eliminate "disclosure vetos."

Write to your local newspapers, letters to the editor, tell your story to your favorite columnist in the women's section, tell your story to the political editor in connection with state efforts to pass Open Records legislation.


Message from 1stMothersAction member Glen Fraser:

Write your congressmember and demand a Congressional Investigation into the adoption industry. When you have done that please let me know by private email that you have done this, and please tell me the name of your congress-member and if you can please also send me a copy of the letter.

I am doing something . . . are you???  It is simple to take a few minutes and write your congressmember and then privately tell me so that we can be a united front.  TAKE ACTION Find your congress representatives email addy at http://www.house.gov/writerep/
Here is the letter I just sent to my congressman.  Feel free to copy and paste.  - Glen
"I have just read the USNEWS cover story 3/12/01 The Adoption Maze.

I am appalled at what this article brought to the light of day about the marketing and selling of healthy white infants. 

How do we request/demand a Congressional Investigation into adoption in the United States.  We must have a Truth and Reconcilliation Investigation.  It has happened in Australia (ORIGINS).  It must happen here.  The trafficking of Healthy White Infants must stop.  There is already nationwide activism in place ready to go before Congress and a Congressional Investigation.
