As an advocate for equal rights for adoptees, we started the hashtag #adopteesrightsmatter. We feel that our rights have never been fully understood, and change is due. I mean, why are adoptees still treated as second class citizens, with fewer rights than pedigree dogs? We just don't get it. A few months back, we started a petition on Change.org and since that petition started, we have over 600 supporters. We are making strides and can't wait to see what our, adoptees, platform looks like with even more signatures!
We would love if we could rally as many adoptees and adoptee advocates as possible to stand behind the #adopteesrightmatter petition. With that just as the starting point, we truly would love if this movement could become as big as the NOH8 movement! How awesome would it be if us, adoptees, had such a platform? Maybe we could actually have changes that benefit us and change the dialect of adoption (we dream BIG!).
Right now, it is more important than ever that we make our voice heard and changes happen! We hope you will join us in continuing to grow the platform for adoptees to speak their truth. This includes adoptees' rights! Help spread the word by tagging #adopteesrightsmatter and signing the petition, let's make some moves!
