Ask the Experts
Barbara Rall, LCSW, Assistant Director, NJ ARCH, offers advice to a 35-year- old woman who was just recently told that she was adopted. This was only after the adoption agency sent her a letter indicating that her birth mother was interested in making contact with her. After confronting her parents about the fact that she was adopted, they finally admitted that she was indeed adopted. The woman's emotions were out of control and Ms. Rall offered some advice as to how she should proceed now.
