The Beauty of Open Adoptions: An Update

I am so thankful for open adoption, and I'm so grateful for Bean and Lil'Man's birth families. Seriously, these are the most stellar people you can imagine. We're fortunate to have very open adoptions, and enjoy building relationships as a whole family with both kids' biological families.

Even though I haven't been posting for about a century, things are still going great with Bean's birth mom K (in the past year she's gone through the temple for her endowment and moved out of state for college-- can't even begin to tell y'all how proud we are of her and how excited we are about all of these great things she's doing!) and with K's whole family. We were able to go to the reception for K's brother's wedding, and see a lot of the extended family too. Love them!

Lil'Man's birth family is amazing too! We see his birth mom F about every 2-3 months, and we also see her family and Lil'Man's birth dad A's family every few months in addition. We were able to go to A's mom's wedding reception a few months ago and it was wonderful! We're so proud of the decisions F and A are making too. They're spectacular people.

Truly, these people are family to us, and we love them ardently and are so happy to have them in our lives.

And here's just a small smattering of a few pictures from the past while...
