i haven't read the responses. But, I have to say if you accuse someone of being "something, anything" , i think it's unlikely that you'll get any answer other than a defence.
Since I'm not an adoptive parent, I'm going to make an educated guess. I believe that most adoptive parents are no more counselled on open adoption realities than birthparents are. I think that they have good intentions but when their child is beginning to understand what it means to be given up for adoption and being adopted, they are unprepared for the emotions of this and close the adoption. In this case I blame the adoption agency/ facilitator/ attorney for not counselling the adoptive parents on how to deal with this.

Another reason could be that the aparents were not prepared for the birth mothers feelings and emotions and being scared by them close the adoption out of fear. Or, they were not prepared for their own feelings of jealousy, or possessiveness.
