I chose open for so many reasons. I wanted the door to always be open. Whether or not we wanted to go through it is a different story, but I wanted the option. Of course now, nearly 13 years later I can't imagine the door NOT having been open. I get to know this sweet, introspective, intelligent, fun-hearted, loving, almost teen! It seriously has allowed me to heal in many ways.
My birth daughter's mom and I always said that we would keep the lines of communication open and take things day by day. If anyone wanted MORE contact to speak up, anyone wanted LESS contact to speak up. That way no feelings were hurt and we could always do what was best for Olivia. Each birth mom/dad wants different things. Do your research, keep asking questions, and delve deep inside yourself to a year from now, 5, 10, etc.
I am also a PM away! Do not hesitate to contact me!
Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!
