Children's Adoption Book About Open Adoption and a Special Tree

By February 23, 2014

Follow me on:

This is one children's book that about makes me cry every time I read it. The illustrations are beautiful and capture a child's many emotions. The story itself is just as beautiful. Megan's Birthday Tree is about a child who is clearly bonded to her adoptive family and goes to them for reassurance and support, yet is grounded by a child's simple understanding of her history. This book demonstrates what an open adoption could do for a child's sense of identity.

If you have opened a closed adoption, especially a foster care adoption, click "comments" below and share your experiences or about your process.

So, what is open adoption to you? Are you part of an open adoption - either as a birth parent, an adoptive parent, or adoptee? Bring your experiences, good and bad to the forum and we'll all get a chance to see open adoption from a different perspective. The forum discussion has been on-going for a couple of years and has numerous posts. Check it out.
