Welcome Back…Really?

Many of us are at the age when our children have grown, physically and in years, and yet, there is still something about their judgment that continues to make us wince. For whatever reason, blame it on the economy; blame it on changing values; blame it on…what difference does it make? Many of our children,… Continue reading »


Attention All Soon to Be Mother-in-Laws
Attention All Soon to Be Father-in-Laws

I know the peak wedding season has already passed, so perhaps my message is late for some, but I know it is still timely for others. Perchance your son, or your daughter, is engaged and planning to wed. With any luck, you are pleased (or moderately so) with your child’s choice of a lifetime partner.… Continue reading »


What Will They Think of Next? Baby Born in Dallas to Woman without Uterus

Recently, a woman in Texas born without a uterus gave birth to a child. (https://tinyurl.com/yaangd5q) According to the article, there have been at least 16 uterus transplants, the first one in Sweden, several years ago. There are many women who do not have a uterus. Some are born without, while others lack a uterus because… Continue reading »


Massachusetts Legislators: Shame on YOU

Full Disclosure: As of this article going to print, the jury, officially, the members of the Massachusetts House and Senate are still out. On Tuesday, May 16, 2017, the Joint Committee on Public Health held a hearing on equal access to birth records for all persons born in this state who happen to have been… Continue reading »


Just a little change…

One of the ways I give back to the Probate and Family Courts is by volunteering as “Lawyer of the Day” in the courts where I frequently practice. There are many reasons why I do this. As always, it is because I appreciate how hard the staff works assisting attorneys and litigants in a resources… Continue reading »


What Will THEY Think of Next?

Three Person Embryo MITOCHONDRIAL REPLACEMENT THERAPY (MRT) I recently wrote an article entitled DNA What’s it to you? which can be found on the K&G website www.kongreen.com. My current blog focuses on another aspect of DNA: the manipulation of embryos to avoid inherited mitochondrial DNA. MRT is a controversial therapy which will allow women who… Continue reading »


DNA: What’s it to You?

I recently had the great opportunity to work with two terrific people, experts in their own right at the Mid-Year Conference in New Orleans, Helping to Healing, sponsored by the National Council for Adoption, the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and American Academy of Assisted Reproduction Attorneys: Dan Berger an attorney who specializes in immigration… Continue reading »


Have you read the Sunday’s August 7, 2016, Globe Magazine????,

Shame on David A. Gross for his callousness and glaring lack of knowledge!!! Anyone who has been touched by adoption (who hasn’t??? now that the dark days of secrecy are gone) knows that NO ONE GIVES UP A CHILD FOR ADOPTION. THERE IS NO SUCH THING. When a parent makes an adoption plan for his/her… Continue reading »


Equal Access to Original Birth Certificates

Did you know that not all persons over the age of 18 who were adopted in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts may access their original birth certificates without court intervention, or going on a “search?” Why? Currently, M.G.L.ch 46 s. 2B prevents those adoptees that were born between July 17, 1974 and December 31, 2007 from… Continue reading »


What’s A Grandparent To Do?

If it seems as though Grandparent Issues have been on my mind as of late, it is true. Becoming a grandparent myself was like looking into a kaleidoscope: with just an ever-so-slight twist, the landscape is different and perhaps more complicated. One would think that on becoming a grandparent, all of the fun and indulging… Continue reading »
