Feelings about adoption

We are flexible, but hope to have an open adoption with our child, where our child has a relationship with his/her birth family including pictures, phone calls, and possible visits. We feel it is very important for our child to have a sense of identity of where he/she came from. The more people to love our child the better. We want our child to feel love from his/her birth family, from us, and from our extended families. Of course, if our birth family prefers a more closed adoption, we are open to that as well.
