Holding my son for the very first time was one of the best moments of my life. Because my birth mother had not had visited the doctor prior to her 32nd week of pregnancy, neither she nor I knew the sex of the child until birth.
Pretty much from day one, I have told my son the story of his adoption. Sometimes it's in the version of a bedtime story, sometimes it's just part of his day.

For me, as I was working with an agency, the placement process was relatively smooth. I had gone "live" and my profile was out there for birth parents to view.
I did a lot of research into the type of adoption I wanted to do. I looked into open adoption, closed adoption, foster adoption and surrogacy. My determining factor in chosing open adoption was the question I asked myself "what do I think would be best for my child"? The answer I ended up with was open adoption as I wanted the birth partent to have a place in my child's life.
