Today, I want to share Article 678 from the Code:
"The adoptee retains his/her ties with his/her birth family. His/her descendants have ties with the adoptive family and with the family of origen."
I was extremely surprised to read this in the Code. I had NO idea that anything about maintaining connections with family of origins would be there. I had already believed this was extremely important, but now I know it is also DRC law.
