The Forgotten Adoptee has had a lot on their mind recently. Not excluding trying to get the final dates of filming organised for the documentary before the summer well and truly hits.Sometimes think that things are just conspiring to thwart the Forgotten Adoptee. Other times it’s WOW who would have thought?! Forgotten Adoptee’s mind has been thinking seriously about emancipation – seriously.
Given recent developments and veiled legal threats (whether substantive or hollow) it got the grey matter thinking. How possible would it be to legally to sever all ties and associations with the people, the family that originally adopted?
In the UK do adult adoptees ever do this? If they do what are the grounds under which this is done? Or if you are an adult do you need grounds to legally sever the legal ties that bind an adoptee to the ‘family’?
As an adult if you have moved on and for whatever reason, have to all intensive purposes cut all contact with those that were responsible for adopting you and those connected to the family that adopted; is there any reason why you can’t legally disentangle from the ties of adoption?
Anyone out there have any “answers”?
