The Kojo Nnamdi Radio Show, broadcast from Washington, DC, explored issues around adult adoptees seeking rights within the adoption context, as described by the show’s summary from 2013:
Discussion about adoption tend to focus on parents, both those seeking to adopt a child and the birth parents. But adult adoptees are increasingly speaking out and demanding a seat at the table when adoption policy is formed. Some are challenging specific laws, such as states that do not allow adoptees access to their original birth certificates. We explore the issues adult adoptees would like to see addressed.
Kojo Nnamdi’s guests included Susan Branco Alavarado,Amanda Woolston, and Joy Lieberthal
