Open Adoption From the Child’s Perspective


Did you know there are approximately 7 million adopted children and adults in the United States today? And if you include the numbers of birth parents, adoptive parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles . . . there are tons of people that are touched by adoption every day.  And the majority of adoptions today have some level of openness that can range anywhere from the exchange of information/photos, to phone calls and/or on-going visits. It’s not often that we get to hear from children directly about what the experience of open adoption is like for them.  Check out this clip from adorable Rylee, a bright young girl who is willing to share her experiences of open adoption.
