"Opening Day" Anniversary | Ohio Adoption Records
Happy Anniversary Ohio Adult Adoptees!
March 20 , 2023 is the 8th anniversary of Ohio’s “Opening Day." On this day in 2015, Ohio fully implemented S.B. 23 making previously closed original birth records accessible upon request to 400,000 adult adoptees. For Adoption Network Cleveland this was the culmination of decades of work advocating for adoptee rights.
As we celebrate, we encourage community members to travel back with us via our video collection and timelines available on our website:https://www.adoptionnetwork.org/service-areas/advocacy/ohio-adoptees-access/
