Colorado - Families Supporting Adoption

I am excited to be a guest blogger at the Colorado Families Supporting Adoption (FSA) blog. I'll be writing once a month. My first official post is about open adoption and the hesitation some people have about openness with their children's birth parents.

"To Be Open or Not To Be Open"

That's a really interesting post, Kim. I have often thought about that issue and have always felt if I adopted I would prefer not to have an open adoption. I think I would fear that either it would be more confusing for the child or that somehow I wouldn't COMPLTETLY be her mom if she had a relationship with another mom. Like she'd be torn. But I can see from your post, and the comment of that birth mother, that there can be a lot of blessings to it. I guess I'd like to know a grown child who lived with an open adoption situation and hear their side of things to know if they liked it or found it confusing. But I'm really glad to have read your side of this issue.
