While we wish we still had contact with L's birth mother, (we don't – she moved and didn't leave any forwarding information), we still talk to L often about her: how much we love her & how much she loves him. This past year L has started to talk about his birthmother. Our most recent conversation happened the other day while I was helping him wash his hands.
Me: Did you know that momma and daddy love you very much!
L: And J* (his birthmother) too! She is my birthmother. She loves me a lot!
Me: She sure does. We all love you!
While he is only three, it is quite sweet to see him start to understand the choice she made and the magnitude of her love.
If you choose us as parents to your little one—whether you want an open adoption or you choose a less open adoption—please know that you will not be a mystery to him or her. We will help them to know you and they will never doubt your love.
