Fourteen months ago Emily and I adopted the most precious child in the world (Parenting Handbook Rule 1: parents are allowed to make broad, wide sweeping comments about their kids!!).
The journey into the world of adoption was made smooth by the awesome folks at A New Beginning Adoption Agency. I can’t say enough wonderful things about them…the founders are adoptive parents; most of the case workers are adoptive parents; and the birthparent program coordinator is a birthmother herself, having placed her son for adoption when in high school.
In other words, these folks KNOW adoptions – shoot, they LIVE adoptions.
Seeing, therefore, all the help they gave us, we didn’t hesitant when they asked for volunteers to share their open-adoption stories on camera. It was the least we could do to support them and to help others who are on this same journey.
With that said, here are a few videos clips of us with our son’s birthmother answering some basic questions about the adoption journey and our relationship. More clips of us answering other questions can be found here.
Question: What is your relationship like now?
