Santa On Ice

Santa’s elves are postponing their trip until next week due to inclement weather. We can’t say if the Jolly Man himself arranged it, but it does give folks another day or two to submit letters if they would like to participate. Please note that you do not have to be in Illinois to write on behalf of Illinois adoptees.

In the interests of time I encourage you to submit letters directly to Mary, Anita, or myself via email. We’ll post the rescheduled date and time as soon as it’s available.

Adoption Reform Illinois wants to raise public awareness that adult adoptees cannot legally obtain an original birth certificate in Illinois.

Those who should write letters are:

  • adoptees
  • birth parents
  • adoptive parents
  • relatives, i.e. spouses, children, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and those who have found an adoptee on their family tree
  • friends who are aware of the need someone is feeling to have an original birth certificate
