Open adoption is a way to provide your child with the best life they can have and still be in their life. It dispels these fears of “Oh, my parents didn’t want me and they didn’t love me” because your birthparents are there and you know they love you. They made this decision because they love you. It gives this opportunity to grow as a person and to live a really full, rich life. It’s just amazing.
Open adoptees speak out.
The first open adoptees are now young adults. We’ve amplified their voices in these exclusive videos as they share how meaningful their open adoption experiences have been. They lead the way for new generations to thrive.
