Our experience with open adoption through Adoption Choices has been very positive. To us, open adoption means giving our child the best life possible, while still getting to be a part of it. We knew from the beginning that we wouldn’t be able to provide our son with everything he needed, so we agreed adoption was what was best for all three of us. We were nervous at the thought of not seeing him grow up and not knowing what was going on in his life, but through open adoption we still get to know him and see him grow. As soon as we met our son’s adoptive dads, all of our fears disappeared. We felt a connection and knew instantly that he was meant to be with this family. Our relationship formed naturally. They attended every doctor’s appointment after the match. They were able to be a part of the pregnancy and were even in the room when he was born. We wanted to provide breast milk for our son so that he could get all the great benefits. I pumped for about 4 weeks after his birth and met with the adoptive parents weekly to give them the milk. We have a very close relationship. We receive pictures and updates regularly and meet up at least once a month. Adoption is a rollercoaster, but we wouldn’t trade our son’s family for the world.
