Birth Parents, Adoptive Parents, and Adoptees– I need you!

I have a clear vision of the book I need to be focusing on– a guide to help others know how to navigate the bittersweet, complex, beautiful world of open adoption relationships. It’ll hold the “secrets” to what has made our open adoption so incredibly amazing and fascinating to others. I want to share this information in hopes that more adoptions will be positive– more satisfied and at peace members of the entire adoption triad. It’s a scientific fact that those within open adoption relationships report higher satisfaction, but what does it actually take to make it work?

My book needs your adoption experiences!

In order to encompass the variety of adoptions and experiences, I need your voices. I need to know what you would tell other adoptive parents, what birth parents would tell adoptive parents who are scared of open adoption, how open adoption has helped adoptees as they’ve grown, etc. Your story matters and it will help others know the ways adoption needs to keep moving and changing to have happier outcomes for all involved.
