Regina Reeves-Solomon

Regina Reeves-Solomon is a birthmother who is currently involved in custody proceedings for her son. Since 2004, Ms. Solomon has fought for the right to raise her child, raising issues regarding the irregular processes of the initial “entrustment agreement.” She draws on her case to illustrate the loopholes and practices that occur in the court system that result in de facto adoptions. In an unprecedented decision, a California judge ordered joint custody between Ms. Solomon and the son’s adoptive” parents. Ms. Solomon moved to Johnson City, Tennessee in 2005, by order of the court, to have access to her child. She lives and works there as a high school math teacher and hopes someday to return home to California with her son.
