I don't think there is any question that the majority of moms who have given up their children for adoption, today and in the recent past, have done so with a belief in the promise of open adoption.
I also, fully believe that agencies, attorneys, and others in their position, largely mislead both birth parents and adoptive parents about the truth of open adoption.
So, if birth mothers are giving up their children because of this promise and adoptive moms are more willingly making this promise, while it is still fact that open adoption agreements are about as worthless as the paper they are written on when it comes to court and legal standards, how do we go about preventing adoptions from closing . . . from any one side.
If this is a motivator in why so many give up their children, and a promise adoptive parents believe in in the beginning. How do we prepare and hold both sides to these promises in the long run?
