Children Tell All: This Is How I Really Feel About My Open Adoption
Adoption is a beautiful thing. For a mother, giving up her baby for adoption is one of the most selfless acts. Adoptive parents get to enjoy the joys of having a child despite any obstacles in their way. For many adopted children, the curiosity about the biological parents is often strong. With open adoption, it seems like the problem is solved. Or is it? These confessions reveal what adoptees really think about their open arrangement. No matter what, adoption is always at least a little complicated.

Not okay.

I was adopted at 8 months old and it was an open adoption.  I've known my bio family my whole life. I honestly would've been better off if they hadn't put me up. I definitely wouldn't have been abused.

Be fruitful and multiply.

I'm adopted and it's an open adoption. Two years after they had me, suddenly they started making more babies. I now have 9 siblings. I would hate to live in that family just seeing how messed up it is.

Such a beautiful outcome.

I'm adopted and I know my birth parents because they did an open adoption. I love it because my son has more grandparents to love and spoil him

Sounds complicated.

My adoption was open because it was an in family adoption. Now that I’m much older, I honestly wish I’d been adopted outside of the family!! I’ve got serious resentment and abandonment issues because of it.

Be grateful for what you have.

I hate that people who weren't adopted feel that searching is disloyal. Truly loving parents support a search. 
Truly loving birth parents choose open adoption. I would know.

So the search begins.

I'm adopted and I've always known. It's an open adoption where I don't know my birthfather, just my birth mother. I grew up thinking he didn't want me, but I found out that he did. I want to know him too.
