I think open adoption is great. You can have it as open as you like. If you want picture two times a year and phone calls that's fine or if you want just the pictures thats fine too. You can find the level of openess that you want adn your baby will always know about you. As an adoptive parent I know alot about my sons birthmohter and I will tell him all about her. As he gets older they can decide if they want a relationship. He will never have to look for her or wonder about her becasue we know. I don't think it matters if you go with an agency or an attorney. There are many wonderful famlies wanting to adopt a baby and I can tell you first hand that my son is the greatest gift anone coule have every given to me. I will do anything for his birthmother, she will always be part of him. We are just starting to look into adoption again and I'm not sure if I should go with an agency or to try to find a birhtmother on our own I am confused about that too on my end. You will know when you find the right family, you will feel the connection. I live in NJ, not sure where you are but I know spence chapin in NY is a wonderful adoption agency and they will be wonderful to you. Hey and if you live close to NJ let me know, I can send you pics and more info about us...if you want to get to know us better. Good luck to you whatever you decide!!

Wow, my son's birthmom is from Long Island...and what you said is the same relationship as what we have with her. She hasn't has a visit yet but we have talked on the phone alot and we are open to a visit but of course it's up to her and I think she is happy with the way it is for now. We are looking for a simular situation. Please email me and I will send you pics and you can get to know us better. I am 33 years old and my husband is 34. Our son is 3. We are really easy to talk to and we want to adopt again but we will not be pushy at all. Please email me at [email protected] I will send you pics and an email and if you want to chat more after that, I will leave it up to you. You are so close to us and it counds like we have alot in common in what we are looking for.
