Open adoption



Open adoption has been a wonderful thing in our lives. The older kids were placed in closed placements and we had already lived with the down sides of that. We had had a child with medical issues without the ability get family medical info. We had had young children ask questions about their birth families without many answers. We really wanted an on going relationship and luckily we found another family who wanted the same things. Allison and her family are just extended family and thats the way we think it should be.
