My How Adoption has Blessed Your Life series shares good news happening in the adoption world from all sides of the adoption triad …or just offers a paragraph or two on how the love of adoption is blessing individuals and families. If you’d like to participate, just send me an email. Enjoy!
Today’s Adoption Good News comes from Lori and her kids. Lori is an adoptive mother who lives and loves open adoption.
Here are a couple of cute things that have come from having a very open adoption.
When asked in her primary class “Who blessed us with our family?” Four year old Elena raised her hand and responded. “My Birthmom Carrie blessed me with my family. I grew in her tummy.”
I invited Elena’s Birthmom to her Preschool Mother’s Day Program. When we arrived, one of the little boys asked Elena if Carrie (Elena’s Birthmom) was her aunt. Elena responded with a laugh, “No, that’s my Birthmom.” The little boy looked confused and said, “It’s your birthday?”
We also just had a very successful weekend this past Saturday when our son Cody was baptized. We had our two birthmoms, one birthgrandma, and grandma and grandpa (my husbands parents) under the same roof. It was quite a crowd!!!! Cody’s birthmom and birthgrandma stayed with us for 4 days along with grandma and grandpa. We also ALL went to Cafe Rio which has been a tradition when we have the special occasion of having both of our birthmoms together with us. Like I said….we have two VERY OPEN adoptions.
Did you miss last week’s Good News? An adult adoptee shares with us how adoption and the reunion with her birth family has blessed her life. Amazing words!
