Access to Original Birth Certificates in North Carolina

I would like to take this time to let all of you know there is an organization in North Carolina which is working on a bill to go before the legislature in 2007. The NC Coalition for Adoption Reform (NCCAR)

If you really believe it is your right to have a copy of your original birth certificate then please join us.

If you are a birth parent and believe it is your child's right to have a copy of their original birth certificate then please join us.

If you are an adoptive parent and hold this belief then join us.

If you are a descendant of a deceased adoptee, join us.

Our bill is working towards access to the original birth certificate for any adult adoptee, the adoptive parent of a minor adoptee, or the descendant of a deceased adoptee who may want it.

Our bill will contain a Contact Preference Form where a birth parent can state one of the following:

I want contact
I want contact only with an intermediary
I do not want contact at this time (updated medical information has to be provided)

We need people for this fight. Visit our website at

2007 is not that far away. We want to hold information meetings around the state also before then. If you know of a group of people, or would like to put up flyers in your area to get people interested in a meeting, please contact me.

Join us if you would really like to see this change happen. We have the momentum of 7 other states and others who are trying this year and next year to gain access to OBC's, behind us. This can happen in NC with your help.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Roberta MacDonald
