Can someone tell me how bio family visits benefit an adopted child? Please be specific!
From an adoptee perspective, the adoptees who tout open adoption tend to have grown up in closed adoptions. I wonder if it is a case of the "grass is greener."
From what I have read, the adoptees who have grown up in open adoptions don't tend to like it.
Thanks for your help!

First let me comment on the links you posted. Ferned had a horrible adoption all round. Not only were here birth family mentally, her adoptive mother was single but "masqueraded" as a married woman, and her adoptive family did not accept her as family at all. The second adopted did not have an open adoption, she had a closed adoption since the correspondence between her birth family and her adoptive family were kept from her.
There's another famous article from an open adoptee. I'll go and find it for you.
