Since my state continues to treat me like a child that can’t be trusted with my records, I think I’d like to relinquish myself, to the state. the problem is I don’t want to be a ward of the court. Since I’m relinquishing myself I think I should be able to pick my new adoptive parents.
I was thinking the governor would be a good choice. He can afford another kid, and let’s face it, the prestige would be nice. I think it would be a mutually beneficial relationship. He could get all kinds of publicity for adopting and I could live in the governor’s mansion.
I think it would be a great way to bring adoptee rights issues home to someone who could do something about it. At all the family photo ops, conventions, and tree lighting ceremonies I could raise my fist and yell “GIVE ADOPTEES THEIR ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATES!!”. I’m betting that could get something done fast.
We all should do it. Just imagine if all the governors, in all the states that don’t allow equal access for adoptees, had tens of thousands adult adoptees trying to relinquish themselves to them…….
Addie Pray Nixon, yeah that sounds good.
