Honorable Tom Lee, Honorable Allan G. Bense

The State of Florida makes searching for biological families very difficult.

By state law and adoptee is required to petition the courts to open their adoption records. Once the adoption has been finalized the records are sealed. Most of the time they cannot be opened unless for medical reasons and even then it is an uphill battle.

I am petitioning the governor to change that law, because adoptees are entitle to know about their biological families just like everyone else.

We, the undersigned, petition the State of Florida to grant to any adult adoptees access to their full adoption records.
