504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 313-390) and 
520    "Pioneering adoption activist Jean Paton (1908-2002) 
       fought effectively for 50 years to reform American 
       adoption. Paton gave adult adoptees a voice and provided 
       them with a healthy self-image; facilitated thousands of 
       meetings between adult adoptees and their families of 
       origin; fought to open sealed adoption records; and 
       indefatigably explained the adoption experience to a wider
       public. Paton's ceaseless activity created the 
       preconditions for the explosive emergence of the adoption 
       reform movement in the 1970s. She was also instrumental in
       the formation of two of the movement's most vital 
       organizations, Concerned United Birthparents and the 
       American Adoption Congress. Using previously unexamined 
       sources, historian E. Wayne Carp offers the first-ever 
       biography of Jean Paton. Beginning in 1951, Paton, a twice
       -adopted, middle-aged ex-social worker, dedicated her life
       to overcoming American society's prejudices against adult 
       adoptees and women who give birth out of wedlock. Her 
       unflagging efforts over the next five decades helped 
       reverse social workers' harmful policy and practice 
       concerning adoption and sealed adoption records and change
       lawmakers' enactment of laws prejudicial to adult adoptees
       and birth mothers, struggles that continue to this day"--
