  • Hi, I want you to know you are still an amazing mother to make this decision. We just adopted our youngest son through foster care and have an open relationship with his birth mom. Her and I email all the time and skype and i send her tons of pictures and updates. We so would love to adopt again. I wish you all the best in choosing an adoptive family. :)

  • by wrking21 Last comment: 49 minutes ago
  • BirthDad - I'm sooo happy for you. I was so sad reading how you felt you had done a bad thing, when in fact you did a wonderfully respectful thing. I'm so glad many of the others pointed out how you did your introduction in the most respectful way possible, giving her a chance to come to terms with it on her own in a non public setting, perfect. I know your daughter is reliving your...
