New User Submitted Photographs

Please feel free to share!! By now, we've all seen the posters of adoptees searching for their biological families. While I resisted this trend for a while, I view it as the government forcing us into virtual prostitution by withholding our names and information; I have decided to give it a shot. Social Media may be just what is needed to bring the issue of adoption reform to the forefront. It would be so much easier if the US or NYS unsealed our records but I don't want to wait forever. My story is no different nor more important than many others that we have seen. My birth name is Kimberly Saxen. I was born 07/31/1967 in Misericordia Hospital Bronx, NY. My birth mother stayed at Rosalie Hall Maternity Home. If anyone recognizes the surname or if I resemble anyone please contact me. Feel free to share this. I would welcome meeting any member of my biological family if they were open to it. If not, then having my medical history is important. In a day and age where early detection and prevention is essential it is critical for adoptees to have this information. The Genetic Disease Foundation states that there are SIX THOUSAND genetic diseases that can be fatal or debilitating. Not having medical family information impacts not only the adoptee but also our children. Thank you! #adoption #adoptionreform “In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage, to know who we are, and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning, no matter what our attainments in life, there is the most disquieting loneliness.” ~~Alex Haley~~
