This is what open adoption really is

         Can I just say that I love OPEN adoption?




Yesterday I got together with M, H, and *our* precious boys. This is Robbie’s second time meeting William, his little brother. That’s right, his BROTHER.
You all know how M and S had decided to not tell the boys the exact meaning of being adopted (basically that they grew in some one else’s tummy) until they were older? Well, they FINALLY had “the talk” with J. William will now be referred to as Robbie’s brother, though I’m sure all four of the boys will grow to be like brothers. M even had the idea to photograph the four of them together and send it out as their Christmas card this year. How completely awesome is that!?!
I am so excited to watch the relationship between our families grow. It truly is a beautiful thing :)

You are such a lucky birthmom! And your boys are the luckiest of all. They are going to grow up with so many people loving them and supporting them. What a beautiful story. This is exactly what the beauty of adoption looks like. You have found the most mature and loving parents ever!

I find it really sad that the brothers don't grow up together in the same family.

Yeah, it does suck Kim. But we have to make the best of every situation. I am just thankful that they will grow up knowing and loving each other.

Beautiful boys! In response to Kim's comment about the boys not growing up together, my mom always said, "If you can't realize the ideal, idealize the real." Ashleigh, I think you are doing a great job of that. So proud of you!
