Sealed adoption records, secrets, and lies keep me from knowing my siblings and them from knowing I exist. My biological parents have a right to their privacy, meaning if they don't want a relationship with me fine, but NOT the right to lie to their children about my existence and request to know them!

Don't lie to alienate a birth parent.

Because you live in agony not knowing. Not knowing ANYTHING.

Lies Your Parents Tell You

The "Little White Lies" That Parents Tell Their Kids

When a parent lies to a child...

Distortion (of truth). Applies to the Adoption Industry and those who would keep us in the dark surrounded by untruths, lies, and secrets.

Hmm... "The lies you believe are destroying you. Every day lies you've learned from parents, friends, church, and society play like a broken record in your head. Some of the lies may be "I must have everyone's love and approval" or "A good Christian doesn't feel angry or depressed." In The Lies We Believe, Dr. Chris Thurman helps you understand what lies you are believing, how they are damaging your life, and what to do about them"

Not that you lied to me, but that I no longer believe you, has shaken me. What Nietzsche actually said...

I'm not Catholic, but I absolutely agree that lying to your kids undermines your credibility as a parent.
