Saint John Adoptive Parents Association, New Brunswick, and Michelle Gerrits, adoptee, New Brunswick at the 37th NACAC Conference 2011 in Denver, Colorado. This workshop profiles two families’ open adoption experiences. A birth mother and the woman who adopted her son will share their journey, which began on opposite sides of a courtroom. They developed a strong bond and learned about love, trust, patience, and understanding. In the second story, a parent and an adopted teen share how they gradually opened an adoption from foster care. The presentation will include practical information for parents considering connecting with their children’s birth family.
