Recently, Lifetime Adoption hosted an adoption webinar in which a birth mother, Rebecca, shared her open adoption experience with us. She created an adoption plan for her newborn daughter three years ago, and has previously shared her beautiful story of open adoption on one of Lifetime’s webinars.
She’s back now, nearly two years later, to tell us what open adoption looks like now with a toddler, as well as how her relationship with her daughter’s adoptive family has become more than she ever imagined, and to answer questions from a birth mother’s point of view.
If you’re thinking about adoption, or making plans for adoption, contact us with any questions you might have. We feel that Rebecca’s insights and outlook through her personal experience will help you! You can view this adoption webinar at www.AdoptionTeleconference.com.
