Then closed it soon after the adoption was finalized

That's my confession.

And people like you do not deserve to adopt. You lied to that childs mother in order to get her to relinquish to you, knowing you had no intention of following through on the empty promises made. Shame on you. In a perfect world, that baby would be given back to its mom and you would be doing community service.

You think in a perfect world, a child goes to parents who did not want her?

I'm giving up my baby for adoption and am thinking I'd like pictures once in a while. So you wouldn't even do that? That's kind of cold. Especially when it's really hard to give your baby up in the first place.

Open adoptions are very frequently closed very soon after the adoption is finalized. It's an empty promise used as a coercion tactic on vulnerable mothers. I hope you understand that it will likely happen to you, and be prepared for it.

thats life.its cold but its true.if you choose adoption,you arent the parent.the parent can decide if you get visits,pictures,etc just like any other parent.the child can look for you after becoming an adult.

I would never do an open adoption. I'm not sharing my baby with the birth parents.
