Our relationship is very limited. I send pictures and updates about 2 times each year. They never contact us anymore. They live about 8 hours away from us, so it is unlikely that we'll ever meet up in public anywhere. I like knowing where they are and such so that he can contact them later if he wants.

One of my best friends allowed a couple to adopt her twins about a year ago. She gets email updates and pictures very frequently. The girls' parents wanted her to know them. They don't live close at all, completely different states, so again, it is unlikely that they'll meet up in public. Though they have talked about meeting at a neutral location much later in the girls' lives to see each other if they girls' want that.

I think it is very important to keep the child's past a part of their lives. However you can do that, even if you don't have contact with their bio family. So if you do go international, you can always do things that correlate with their heritage.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
