The face of adoption today is far different than just thirty years ago. Adoption is now based on an open, honest relationship with the birthfamily if they choose, and the blessing of adoption is shared with children from their earliest days.
Birthparents today have many choices, including choosing their child's family, the level of future contact they want, even what they wish their child's birth certificate to say. A birthparent may now feel more comforted as they see their child growing happy, healthy, and safe in the family that they themselves selected. Read more about the choices birthparents have today at BirthmotherArticles.com.
What does this mean for adoptive families? It means raising their child with honesty, reading children's books about how they grew under a heart that loved them enough to choose the ery best for them. It means knowing their child's medical history, a very valuable tool today. And it means being proud adoptive parents, treasuring the baby or child they have been chosen for.
Open Adoption is blessing both birth and adoptive families in so many ways. The end result for the child is that there are more people in their life who love them: something we can never have too many of. Learn how you can touch the life of someone else through adoption, and how your life in turn may be blessed.
