My apologies if you don’t have an hour, because watching this video is the only way the title is going to make sense to you.
This week I was the guest on Melissa‘s Adoption Angles. We played to a large audience (wow, Melissa, well done!) which was delightfully involved and curious about creating a child-centered open adoption.
We had sound difficulties for the first 15 minutes, which was when I talked about how we went from marriage ==> infertility ==> adoption ==> open adoption.
After the technical difficulties are resolved, I talk about WHY I chose openness (it was purely selfish), HOW to come to terms with “sharing” a child, and WHAT big responsibility we adoptive parents carry. And at 57 minutes, there’s a shout out to TOOTPU from us ColoBloggers.
You got chills? I do. Nothing a little Merlot can’t cure.
