How Long Are Adoptees Going to Have to Keep Paying for Our Adoptions?

I'm 47 years old.

I was adopted as an infant, in a closed domestic adoption.

This year I have paid more adoption-related expenses than ever in my history.

I have never lived with a sense of entitlement. I am the type of person who has worked extremely hard all my life, having no problem paying for anything I decide to do. 

My frustration with all that I've paid for adoption is that I never decided to be adopted.
