Been wanting to share an update on Jonah and his birth mom. I’m still posting photos of him to our private Facebook group and it’s great as she and her mom and grand mother are always responding to photos. We met up for our annual visit this last Memorial weekend. We had such a great time at one of the trampoline parks in Dallas and we have truly become a little blended family.
Her other children interact with us and Adolphus’ sisters have welcomed her and her kids into the family as well. I always tell her that you may have placed Jonah with us and made that sacrifice but you have gained a huge family in return.
We are forever going to be family.
It was also interesting talking with Jonah’s Birth Mom and she shared with me that the monthly photos and the visits really help with knowing that she made the right decision. She said she still can’t look at the hospital photos but seeing Jonah happy and thriving makes her so happy. I guess this is the benefit of open adoption in that the Birth Moms are able to see the result of their extremely hard decision.
We are truly blessed by her and her kids and we look forward to continuing our visits each year.
Have a wonderful day.
Andrea & Adolphus
