Small Change In Local Laws Helped This Woman Find Her 8 Siblings
October 13, 2017
Sometimes, we do not pay close attention to the changes that happen in local laws and policies. Meanwhile, even the slightest improvement may change someone's life in the way they'd never expected. And this is exactly what happened to Ellen Brotschol Noble from Union Beach, New Jersey.
From the age of 9, Ellen knew that her mom and dad were not her real parents. She was adopted. Ellen had a nice childhood and grew up in a loving family, but the woman never had a chance to learn anything about her biological parents - not until January 2017.
The thing is that before this law was passed, New Jersey residents who were adopted as kids had no legal access to any official information about their biological parents. So learning the truth about your biological family was a real issue for every adopted kid in the state. But when the Adoptees’ Birthright Act went into effect in January 2017, everything has finally changed.
