  1. We have open adoptions with all of our children’s birth families and as much as I love them, I’ve always had a hard time putting the feelings into words. You did such a great job capturing the wholeness that open adoption gives a child and the unrestrained love that it allows. I will definitely be sharing your post with anyone who wonders how it feels to be in an open adoption.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I do need to clarify because here at Mosswood Connections we like to confuse people. 🙂 I have one adult daughter. My Mosswood partner, Sarah, has one son. Sarah, her husband, and Meg are all incredible people. They are all doing their best to keep the interests of their son at the forefront when considering their ongoing relationship. In the process, love just seems to grow.

  7. Adoption is such a difficult topic, but it’s wonderful to see how well adjusted everyone is in your situation. It’s beautiful that you keep in touch with the birth mom and get along with her enough to continue a relationship over the years.

  8. That is really beautiful. It sounds like you had a very special Christmas. I can understand this from the perspective of having multiple children. People sometimes wonder if we love one more than another or if we have enough love for all of them. We love them all equally and uniquely as “love is exponential.”

  9. What a beautiful sentiment. I wish more parents would see that loving one parent does not lessen the child’s love for the other. Kudos to you for putting your child’s needs first.
    Have a healthy & happy holiday!
