Loved the video! My ex-husband is adopted. We have no medical history and very basic information, the rest is "sealed". We have an eight year old daughter together, it would be great to have more information for the both of them!

Definitely a though-provoking video. I have a cousin who is a adopted and he has had contact with both of his birth parents since becoming an adult. It was crucial for him to move on in his life.
