Elle, You seem like a wonderful girl. I am the one who did the open adoption and you asked me for help. You really express yourself well. I can tell you about adoption. First I love my son more then anything in this whole world. Just his smile makes me happy. I love him no matter what. I also know that his birthmohter will be a part of his life, if not now, in his thoughts or his future. I can't wait to tell him about her. We have an open adoption and she is really a great person. My story is perfect. I know some birthmother have problems, like the adoptive family says they will call her and they don't. So, be careful. If you are worried that nobody can love your child like you can...trust me I love my son more then anyone or anything. I can't even put it into words. I only want the best for him and because he is part of his birthmother.....I feel like she is family too....it's strange. We have an open adoption, send her pictures twice a year or more for special occasions. Once we adopted him, we spoke on the phone a lot at first but now much less. She is in college and busy but she knows we will always be there for her and the lines of communication are always open. Personally, We are looking for a similar match for our second adoption, we wont someone to be 100% sure this is what they want, so if she gets to know us and decides to raise your baby or go with another family, we honestly won't be mad. We would never want to raise a child knowing that she changed her mind. We are nice and easy to talk to.........not just saying that. We love animals and are very compassionate people. We are in no rush and want a match that's meant to be. Our son is wonderful, he will make a fun caring big brother. We are very easygoing about things and let him be a kid. We encourage him to be himself and never want him to change. Anyway, sounds like I am going on about me too much. I think that my sons birthmother knew she was not ready to raise a child and being in touch with us from time to time makes her feel better. She knows he is having a good life and is happy. We get to know her better too. The last time she saw him was when he was 6 weeks old, he is now 2 1/2. I think she is just happy to know he is happy and when he is old enough to understand all of this maybe they will see eachother agian.or maybe sooner.......we left that part pretty open. Anyway, I am not as good as expressing myself over email like you are. I would be happy to talk to you on the phone, ask me anything. email me at [email protected]

We went through an adoption agency with our first adoption. We only knew of the situation after our son was born. He was 2 weeks old, we took him home when he was 6 weeks old. He is so cute, I will email you a picture if you want!!

Do not post your adoption emails on this website. The last thing young girls need in a vulnerable situation it to be coersed into adoption by a complete stranger. There is no respect for the girl or her situation... all you seem to care about is adopting another baby, and if that fits into your profile then you will try and try. Please be respectful of other people and their situations. Dont be so selfish

Shorty, that's no true. I am not a selfish person. There are people interested in adoption and I am not willing to just take someones baby. Before I met my sons birthmother, she was a complete stranger, now she is like family to us. She made her decision after our son was born. I respect your opinion and I am glad we have freedom of speech. Sorry you feel that way, I am not here to offend anyone. I am really a nice person.
