Adoption is all about the adopted person, the birthparent/s and very little about us adoptive parents (but we do have a huge responsibility towards our adopted person). If at all possible openness in adoption is a MUST. It is very important to understand all the feelings, heart and soul of those who have the most to gain from knowing where they came from, why they were placed, where and how their baby is and when the adopted person is ready to ask questions, the answers should be readily available to him/her. This makes for a much more "grounded" person.
Healthy relationships with birth relatives are a vital part of any open
adoption. Continue the learning process about this and many other important
topics at the
