A recent poster was pretty honest (I hope) when she stated that she would choose a particular form of adoption so as to "avoid the birth mom". I have found that many feel this way when they are starting their adoption journies and also many change their opinion during the process. Is this true for you?
It makes me wonder how many adoptive parents or potential adoptive parents have considered avoiding "the birth mother" and why? Is it due to personal experiences with adoption? Thru peers? Media? Is it based on one's perception of "family"? Is it due to lack of information about how openness in adoption is beneficial for the child? If you now have a relationship with your child's birth mom, what changed your initial fear? Please help shed some light. Thank you.
