nope, not something I would ever do. But here's a bump
Have never adopted myself however I have placed a baby up for adoption. It is open. I see pics regularly see the child frequently to.
I tried many years ago when I couldn't conceive. the mother changed her mind when she saw her beautiful baby. It was a very expensive emotional rollarcoaster for me and I couldn't repeat the process.
yes I adopted several cats from shelters and recently adopted my niece
We adopted my partners 3rd cousin after she ended up in the foster care system. It's not a completely open adoption even though it is technically family. We provide the birth mother with pictures once or twice a year as well as updates on how our daughter is doing(major mile stones etc.) It's difficult to navigate the bureaucracy involved in the foster care system. But the benefit is that in our state they provide you with adoption assistance every month until the child is 18. That also includes medical benefits. Are you thinking about adoption?
