I have been working on getting through to the Pennsylvania legislature the importance of open records in PA.

It looks like I may get my chance. Any PA resident that has been touched by adoption please call your local state Rep. NOW IS THE TIME! This is the response I received.

Please accept my apologies for not getting back to you on your concerns regarding adoptees. I do have your letter dated 5/4/05 and am reviewing it with staff.

I would definitely be available to meet with you along with some staff members, here at the capitol, regarding this issue. I will have my secretary, Michelle, contact you to set up a meeting.

Sincerely,
Ronald S. Marsico
State Representative
105th Legislative District

Representative Marsico,

Thank you for your Legislative news updates. I find them informative and helpful.

I have been trying to contact you on a matter that is very important to me for more then 2 years now. I have written letters sent e-mails and even called both of your offices. I have asked your secretary for an appointment all are falling on deaf ears. Why is it so hard to talk to my local State Representative? As a tax payer and a registered voter, I was under the impression you worked for me.Your staff obviously thinks otherwise.

At the end of this news letter you talk about lessening the burden for Pennsylvania residents to adopt a child. What about lessening the burden on adult adoptees to gain important access to their medical history and family lineage? I know that there is a PA adoption medical registry. I called this registry and talked to the only employee that worked there. She told me that in 7 years there are only around 1,400 people registered. Of those just under 400 are birthparents. She has had 3 matches! Not a very effective system! Other alternatives must be looked into.

Most physicians say that the more they know about their patient’s medical history, the easier it is to determine what kinds of medical screening to plan. By knowing that there is a genetic predisposition, it may even be possible to prevent the onset of certain conditions. Our physicians supported us with letters stating these facts. Our physicians didn’t even know about the medical registry!

I would like to take a few minutes to talk with you about this important information.

Please take the time to talk to your constituents.
