Considering Adoption for your Baby

Are you pregnant and considering adoption or know someone who is? Or, maybe you already have a child that you love dearly but are not able to provide him or her with everything you want them to have. Since we haven’t been in your situation, we can only imagine that it is a difficult and scary time for you. We want you to know that open adoption can be wonderful choice for you, your baby, and the adoptive parents. As adoptive parents, we will always treasure the birthparents who have entrusted their children to us. They are beautiful people who wanted what was best for their children and for them, adoption was the answer.

As we went through the adoption process, we learned that it has changed significantly from years ago. At first this was scary for us but as we met a few birthmothers, we discovered that open adoption has many benefits and we looked forward to getting to know the birthparents of our children. While both of our adoptions are “open”, we have had limited contact (mainly we send pictures and letters) with the birthparents since the first few months. We periodically talk to our youngest daughter's birth father. The openness of our daughter's adoptions is their birth parents choice and if they ever desire to change this relationship, we would welcome them into our family.
