The past 6 weeks an interesting, learning experience.
Today we met Kay, Sam's mom, for the first time. It was nice to meet her and be able to talk to her. I wanted to get a picture of her and Emma, but she said no, so I respect that. I have some pictures Sam gave me of her and Emma, but the quality of pic is bad.
Brad and I have reflected what we've learned and gone through the past 6 weeks. We wouldn't change any of it, even the horrible stuff. We're both willing to have another open adoption through Foster Care. Now our boundaries are:
1)Social Network friends, share pictures and status updates about the kids
2) Maybe visits at public places, or anywhere but our home
3) Never give them our address
Now if it were an adoption through an agency or private, it might be different. I don't know, I'm not in that situation yet.
