Most of what I see on this part of the site is amoms pitted against bmoms, and vice versa. A lot of the moms who answer seem to have an intense dislike against one part or another of the adoptive community. I think most of this stems from moms who are unhappy with their adoption, whether they are amoms or bmoms.
So how many of you are happy with the adoption arrangement you had?
I know personally, I am very happy with my adoption. I have an open adoption and close relationship with my DDs a-mom and the rest of the family. My first born knows that my second born is her "special sister." My amom jokingly refers to me as her baby mama, and that is what I call her also :~) We also frequently discuss "our daughter" and are able to express our wants and desires in the relationship we have. I wish all adoptive families had what I have.
BTW my first born DD is 7 years old, and has been with this family since the age of 8 mos.

I also have a really good relationship with my sons adoptive family. I love them all, and amom and I often discuss "our son". My avatar is amom, me, and our son celebrating his 21st. I'm one of the lucky ones, and it sounds like you are too. But, I know far too many that have had heartbreaking experiences due to adoption, and far too many. And for that reason I am pro-adoption reform.
I actually don't see it as amoms Vs bmoms because there are plenty who see eye-to-eye. I see it as people who like the adoption industry status quo, and those that want reform.
