I was talking about adoption at a recent counseling appointment when my counselor shared that she knew a woman who grew up in an open adoption. The woman maintained very close relationships with both her moms, something supported by her adoptive mom even as the woman became somewhat closer to her firstmom. She described the woman who was adopted as well-adjusted and really happy about her situation.
I forget where they all originated, but it was so nice to hear about an adult who grew up in an open adoption and how beautifully it turned out.
In related news, my daughter and her family are currently visiting with my mom in Florida. I love that they make time for that on their yearly trip there.
