open adoption visit.jpgAs you look into open adoption, it’s important to learn from the adoption experiences and stories of others. Today, we are sharing two great adoption webinars that will help you to gain insight into what life is like for birth parents and adoptive families living in open adoption relationships today!

In the webinar Two Sides of Open Adoption, you can learn what it really means to have an open adoption from adoptive mother Lori and birth mother Liz. You’ll see open adoption through the eyes of one child’s birth mother and adoptive mom. While every open adoption is unique, it’s valuable to learn how a personal relationship is possible, for the benefit of all involved.

Through watching this webinar, you’ll discover open adoption’s potential for a relationship between adoptive parents and birth mother. Although many adoptions aren’t as open as Lori and Liz’s, through their experience we learn how open adoption can be a healthy and positive relationship for all. By hearing their insights and experience through their adoption story, we feel that you’ll be encouraged, inspired, and better informed for your own adoption. 

The second webinar is Tanya’s Adoption Story, and it shares what open adoption is like for an adoptive parent. Hear what it’s like to keep in touch with your child’s birth parents. Tanya shares stories and photos from her personal experience with two open adoptions.

Maybe you’ve been struggling with infertility, or with anxiety that loving your adopted child won’t be quite the same as with a biological child. Perhaps you’re wondering if open adoption could allow you to feel like “mom” and “dad.” A two-time adoptive mom, Tanya’s story will allow you to see adoption in the life of her family’s experience through infertility to open adoption.
