Openness

The level of openness in an adoption is a personal choice and each family needs to do what is best for them and their situation. Some people want minimal contact while others have frequent personal contact. A common fear I've heard when talking to birth moms or reading birth mom blogs is the fear that the adoptive parents will cut off contact or close the adoption, not keeping up with the openness agreed on. Today I had this thought...

We are pretty open in this blog. We talk about what we are doing as a family and individuals, we post lots of pictures and talk about the good times and the bad, and I try to do a new post weekly. Hopefully this will be encouraging and comforting to birth families because they can know for sure that we will always be at least this open with them, and likely much more so.
