Jocelyn 377 Posted February 29, 2012 Report Share Posted February 29, 2012 Melissa, the agency she went with encouraged open adoption but it seemed that maybe she wasn't as ready for that yet as the adoptive parents were. I'm glad that the note from the adoptive parents let her know that they are there for her whenever she wants to come around. So I think there's hope that it will be open but things can change (which I think we all know how that goes, as you go through the ever evolving relationship with your child's family). I didn't read the additional comments below but after what you read I'm glad that I didn't. I know I'm guilty of judging people and making comments when I shouldn't from time to time but our experience with adoption has made me take a step back to re-think things before making those judgments. I wish people would take that from stories like this, to realize that there are many definitions of a mother or of family, for that matter, and we can each learn from other's experiences to make us more well rounded, caring people. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
