Law change allowed adoptee, siblings to connect
CAMPTON HILLS – The family tree created by Laura Machin’s research into her adoption records resembles a made-for-TV movie.
Details were revealed to her this past year, after Illinois changed the law in 2011, allowing adoptees age 21 or older to receive copies of their original birth certificates. Before, adoptees would get birth certificates with their adoptive parents names, not their actual certificate with names of their biological parents.
Machin, 61, of Campton Hills, was adopted in 1951 and never knew anything about her birth parents.
