A Search for Survivors reaches the one year milestone

Just a brief post today pointing my readers across to A Search for Survivors which has just marked its one year blog-o-versary today, a year’s worth of important work.
There have been a number of important posts there even over just the past few days, including these two both of which are cases I’m watching,

California AB 372- the CARE-tastrophe – Taking the bad lack of access situation, and actively making it worse.

I suppose this could be considered another post following on the heels of my earlier, Being C.A.R.E.-less about adopted people’s access in CA and Bastard Access- either we all go together or we don’t go at all- “Nobody gets left behind.

They are backgrounder, or basic building block concept posts that underlie a fair amount of my writing, and will probably be referred to from time to [...]

Being C.A.R.E.-less about adopted people’s access in CA

If you believe the California Adoption Reform Effort, (or C.A.R.E.”) is going to gain full Bastard access to records in CA I’ve got a bridge to sell ya… .
In C.A.R.E.’s case, apparently the Brooklyn Bridge, as they for a time, could not be bothered to even find a picture of a California landmark bridge, instead [...]

Federici Fiasco

Yeah been a bit since I’ve blogged, let’s pick up where I left off- “Attachment” related bullshit.
Wayward Radish, the blogger behind A Search for Survivors has written a number of posts this week pertaining to Ronald S. Federici and the disabling of Pound Pup Legacy (PPL).
