To Prison with Love, An Indecent Indictment and America's Adoption Travesty is the true story of the author who was sent to federal prison in 1993 for her work of reuniting families. The government charged her with "conspiracy to defraud the government of confidential information" because of sealed adoption records, which are sealed forever in America. Sandy Musser was forced to surrender a child to adoption in 1954, but always hoped that her daughter would be able to find her. But when she learned that ADULT ADOPTEES do not even have a right to their own Original Birth Certificate and that her daughter wouldn't even have an option to find her, she decided to establish the Adoption & Family Reunion Center. She became devoted to helping hundreds of people be reunited until finally in 1993, while having breakfast at a local restaurant, she saw an article on the front page of her local newspaper that said "Adoption Reunion Specialist Indicted!" She had no idea that the government had been keeping tabs on her for three years before setting her up with a phony case and then indicting her. She went to trial and was charged guilty on 35 counts. 60 Minutes paid her a visit prior to her sentencing in October of 1993 and on November 5, 1993, she went to prison. She has been an adoption reform activist since 1976 and continues to be outspoken through her organization, Adoption ALARM Network. David Taylor, Co-Host of "Adoption Answers" Radio Show states: In the final analysis, this book is a sobering acount of our government's flagrant abuse of power. It's a story of sting operations, government lies, taped phone conversations and coercion that turns friends against friends. George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four could never have predicted a system as corrups as the one that sent this non-violent grandmother to federal prison.
