|I am not adopted nor do I know anyone who has been, at least to my knowledge. That being said, I agree with you about this. I understand about closed adoptions and such, but I believe that the child has a right to know, when they are old enough. In some cases of adoption, the parents have died and there is no one to care for the child. In those cases, I believe that the authorities should get as much information about the parents as possible. In cases like yours, I believe that the parents, or at least the mother, should fill out a form giving the child the kind of information you have been searching for. Some people who give up their children don't want the child to contact them later, which I think would be sad for the child, but a form like I am speaking of could give the child that information as well. Mothers who have refused to name the father of their children might not want to list them even here, but the form would be for the child's eyes only.
Other than the remarks above, I only have one thing to add. In the third sentence of the last paragraph, shouldn't the first word be 'Where'?
