I am just curious if anyone has learned more about adoption from one another on Cafemom. I try to read all the different groups, forums etc. I am so thankful that I can view all sides of adoption. As an adoptive mom I think this is of great importance. Although everyone may not always agree it is important to know the feelings and emotions to adoption. I am so thankful to have a friend in MissingChloe and we share so much feelings which is a blessing. We are from different sides of adoption but respect each other and are always open and honest. Just wondering if others have any experiences.

Yes. But it also clarified POV's that perhaps I would never had another place to get clarification from. It doesn't mean I have to agree but I have learned to listen better. And there are things that I have made connections with...the AHH moment. Like abortion and adoption not really being in the same category. Without this site I would still be stuck with people debating how more adoptions would be possible if abortion were not an option and how I am such a hypocrite for being an adoptive mother and still believing in a woman's right to choose abortion. And also to be able to better defend my choice of continuing to not change our address or phone number so we may have an open line as much as possible to my son's birth mother. Very little people I come into contact with agree with contact between birth mothers and adoptive families :(
