35. Sara Feigenholtz, an adoptee in reunion and an Illinois State Senator

Part 1/2 of a conversation with Sara Feigenholtz. Part 2 is scheduled to air one week from this episode.

Sara as an Illinois State Representative fought 14 years (1996-2010) to have the adoption law changed in her state granting adoptees the right to request their original birth certificate. Sara is featured in the Jean Strauss film, A Simple Piece of Paper www.vimeo.com/channels/adopteefilmchannel

As an adoptee herself, she advocates on behalf of all members of the constellation for adoption reform. Now as an Illinois State Senator, she continues to serve the citizens of her district from her Northside office in Chicago and from the state capital in Springfield, IL.
