Last weekend I taught a Birth Mom class at my adoption agency. This was by far, the best class I have taught. It was supposed to only last 1 1/2 hours and ended up lasting 3 hours! The couples asked so many questions, and didn't hold back which I love!

But, the best part was a couple who pulled me aside afterwards and told me that they were against open adoption before this class, but after hearing me speak they have a different opinion of Birth Mothers and are going to reconsider. They asked if they could contact me in the future if they had any questions, which of course I agreed to. It just feels good to think that I may be making a difference

That is so awesome! I know that after hearing our panel talk, we were even more confident in our decision to pursue an open adoption. Thanks for sharing your story with people and changing the face of adoption!
