For almost 20 years, I have been a vocal advocate to pass a bill that would allow thousands of Connecticut adult like me, who were adopted as infants during the “Baby Scoop Era,” to access our original birth certificates. For the past several years, this work has included collaborating with the non-profit Access Connecticut, which under the leadership of fellow adoptee Karen Caffrey has created a coalition that has brought us closer than ever before to passing this bill and making what was once only a wish, a reality. This story in the Milford Mirror provides great information about the bill and background including, excerpts of the testimony I submitted to the state Judiciary Committee earlier this month. If you’re interested in reading my entire testimony, you can access it here: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2018/juddata/tmy/2018HB-05408-R000309-Boynton,%20Cindy%20Wolfe,%20-TMY.PDF Here is the text of the bill itself: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2018/TOB/h/2018HB-05408-R00-HB.htm And please …. If H.B. 5408 is something you believe in, too, email your state representative and senator today!

“Every day, it becomes more and more clear that Connecticut needs new leadership, new ideas and a new direction,” Boynton said in a press release. “We also need legislators able to work across party lines, so that people — and not politics — come first. That’s the kind of legislator I will be: one who brings people together, truly listens to her constituents and works hard to create a better quality of life for those who live in the 117th District and throughout Connecticut.”
