All three of my children through adoption have their original birth certificates!
Thanks for your comment, Meghan. I'm actually able to get mine, too, because I was born in one of the states that has changed its laws making it possible for me to do so, but this is a right I want _everyone_ to have.
Yeah, my son won't ever get his, and I hate that. I really, really do. His will be sealed away forever with his mother's named erased. That is something that just makes me seethe inside.
