What's the #1 piece of advice you'd give to a perspective adoptive parent? (from a birth mother's perspective, obviously)

Be careful with their feelings. Be open to communications...try to let the birth mother take the lead as best as you can or at least try to run things by them with issues that really do concern them. Be open!!! Or at least be as open as they really want. In general they wouldn't be making this decision if it wasn't right for them and the child so try not to worry so much about them changing their mind or stealing the child.

I think the best thing my birth daughter's mom did was when I stayed at her house during one visit. Olivia wanted to sleep in the pullout couch bed with me. Her mom let her without seeming to have any worries concerns etc of me taking her in the night lol. She just let the two of us have our bonding time. It made me feel so great.
