Guest Blogger for Foster 2 Forever - Open Foster/Adoption

Today was my first experience as a guest blogger. I hope that by sharing our story it will help others in the same position or enlighten others.

found you from Foster2Forever...I really appreciated you sharing you story. My little sibs had closed adoptions, so it is always interesting for me to hear about open adoptions and how that works. Thanks for sharing!
Neveah is beautiful!

Thanks Kylee. I would have never thought that we would end up having an open adoption with a foster/adoption case but I was able to spend many hours with her birth parents and was able to recognize what a blessing it would be for her to be able to know them. I know private open adoptions can be even better but for her protection I have put certain things in place and I have had to change things a little from what I was mandated to do when she was in reunification with her birth parents. It made the transition to open adoption a little harder because they were expecting it to be a little more like it was when they had rights to her. We still have a few bugs to work out as it hasn't even been a year since her adoption was final.
