  • Well...I wasn't any of the categories you listed above, but  we did adopt, my parents were foster parents all of my childhood.
    We do not have contact with the birth mom...we felt it was better for a closed adoption so she could get on with her life and so we could have a protected situation for our daughter since there are no normals for this situation!

  • @Knottiec1ce60c4daf7992e  Hey, thanks for joining us! If you're going to stick around, you might want to change your username so we can remember who you are. You could also post on the thread for people who have adopted. You're the first one of our little group here who has already adopted so that thread wasn't posted for this month, but I'll go ahead and put it up and you can post there if you want!
