Our adoption was a private adoption. My son's birth mom and I got to know each other during her pregnancy. Five years later we sill have a strong bond and a very special one. The promises I made to her, are the promises I kept. We are blessed that we have our friendship. For us, we feel this is so important but we feel it is most important for our son. I have known some adoptees who know nothing about their birth parents, and to me that is sad. I feel blessed to know that my son's birth mom is still a part of our lives, that if and when my son ever wants to see her he can. Adoption situations vary, but I believe an adoptee has a right to know information on their birth parents.
