I think that's great you're forming a relationship with them! We also did with our sons birth parents and I think that has made a HUGE difference in the open aspect of it all.

My son knows that babies are b...

This is going to be the last time I ever comment to you, as I feel some people don't understand my stand point on things and I don't understand others stand points on things.. Reading what you have said makes my heart race and brings me to tears. I do believe in adoption.. I believe in it EVERY SINGLE time I walk through my front door after w...

I know it was very hard for our Birth mom, we included her in a lot of what we did for him, while she was pregnant we brought her to our home and showed her the progress on the nursery etc, to show her where he would be and the environment he would have. After he was born, I stayed in the hospital room with her the entire time and never left once, She held hi...

" I'm not sure what happened in your life that has made you so hostile towards adoption but I hope you find peace around it. While adoption isn't for everyone it is a wonderful solution for some birth mothers, children, and adoptive parents." Perfectly put.
