The Laws for Adoption, Adopted children etc. are worthless and a waste of Tax Payers Money. Being born in 1963 and adopted by my Father in 1966 the Laws of being treated equal as a Blood child are False. When my Father Passed in 2006, I wasn't told being I lived in another State and found out on my Birthday in 2007. Even after receiving xmas card in 2006 and B'day card 2007 from someone claiming to be him. When asking questions to why I was not told. I was informed by Family Members and Lawyers. I had no rights to be informed because I was adopted by him. So why waste tax payers Money saying we have rights when the Laws in place let's adopted children be mistreated like a stray dog being tossed around and never wanted. Beware Indiana residents, Adoption isn't forever in the State of Indiana #2

i cant understand why indiana has no grandparent rights. all of us grandparents need to fight to get this changed. we should be able to see and spend time with our grandbabies. and yes cps is a joke and all they want to do is destroy people so they profit from it. #5
