It was brought to my attention that a client of mine requested her "non-id" information from the state, which is her legal right. But when speaking to the "professional" representative that is suppose to be there to help her in her quest, instead, voiced her personal opinion on how her decision was going to upset the birth parents...
FIRST OF ALL....
- YOUR OPINION DOESNT MATTER HERE - JUST DO YOUR DAM JOB!
- SECOND, TRY BEING PROFESSIONAL AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLICATED EMOTIONS THAT COME WITH THE CHOICE TO REQUEST THIS INFO AND DON'T ADD TO THEM BY MAKING THE CLIENT FEEL LIKE THEIR DOING SOMETHING WRONG - because they are not!
- THIRD, NEVER ASSUME THAT BY REQUESTING THIS INFO THAT THE CLIENT ACTUALLY WANTS TO CONTACT THE BIRTH FAMILY, BUT MAY JUST WANT TO LEARN ALL THEY CAN ABOUT THEIR HERITAGE AND ADOPTION . (These are sensitive situations and everyone's is different).
- IF YOU CAN'T REMAIN PROFESSIONAL AND KEEP YOUR PERSONAL OPINIONS OUT OF THE PROCEDURE....FIND A NEW JOB!
