a) The relationship between the development of a person and a possible damage done by the knowledge of the adoption records. Adoption can play an important role in a person's self-development and self actualization; however only when let to know at a right time.
b) Current view on the adoption situation.
2. Body: Three reasons supporting the view.
a) Keeping the confidentiality of the side which rejected a child.
b) Disrupting effects the information might have on a person if opened in a wrong time under wrong circumstances.
c) Maintaining and protecting the rights of the adoptive parents.
3. Conclusion: The acceptance of the possibility of opening the record to mature grown-ups. The problem arising of this possibility
It has been a generally held view for a long period of time that only an unhappy and troubled person would try to find his biological parents. As it was honestly accepted that the actual process of adoption would create a completely new life for any child and there would possibly be no need to seek out information about one's biological background.
It is now known however that it is not so simple. I have come to a conclusion that in fact almost every normal child sooner or later has to face an "adoption dilemma." Its essence lies behind the fact that every adopted child basically has two sets of parents, and he needs to settle down the relationship with both of them. "Such knowledge could be as by the way of plain information, that would be enough to satisfy him, as well as it may be imaginary." (Berebitsky, 43) It can play an important role in a person's self-development and self actualization; however only when let to know at a right time.
