To all those whose lives have been affected by adoption, an important message from Concerned United Birthparents:
Concerned United Birthparents (CUB) has been a voice for adoption reform since 1976, providing support to all members of the adoption triad. We hope you benefit from the work we have done and continue to do. In today’s fast-changing climate of adoption, here are some of the issues we are fighting for:
- Preventing unnecessary family separations
- Educating the public about the lifelong impact of adoption on adoptees and birthparents
- Continuing support of unrestricted access for adult adoptees to their original birth records
- Reaching out and connecting recent birthparents with others in this country and around the world
- and most importantly,
- Maintaining the atmosphere of mutual support and respect that is a hallmark of CUB
CUB serves those affected by adoption and those concerned with adoption issues. Although our focus is on birthparents - long the forgotten people of the adoption community - we welcome adoptees, adoptive parents, and professionals. We find that we have much to learn from each other and that sharing our feelings and experiences benefits all of us.
We are a nonprofit organization; we don’t have a staff, we don’t have an advertising budget, we don’t have sponsors. We are an all-volunteer board yet we put out quarterly newsletters, maintain our website www.cubirthparents.org
, answer phone calls from members of the adoption triad from all over the country, and put on our annual retreat.
Our work is sustained through membership dues and donations from people like you. These funds go towards paying the cost of web updates and maintenance, phone lines, fax service, printing and postage to mail the newsletter. Our registration fee for the annual Retreat is not set to make a profit, but only to cover our costs.
