James and his Birthmother, Katherine, join me on this Adoption Perspectives. Placed for adoption 22 years ago, James talks about what it has been like growing up in his adoptive family with the love of Katherine in an extremely open adoption. In 1990, Katherine asked for an open adoption long before openness was the norm. Her willingness to venture into the unknown, with no model or manual to follow, has been a blessing beyond words, but certainly has come with its challenges. Many of us wonder about the benefits and the difficulties that open adoption can offer. Listen to this interview to gain a deeper insight as to what our kids may face and our child’s Birthmom may feel in this complex dynamic.
