Ok so I know that open adoptions can be amazing...I've read the information, heard people talk about it and although I've never experienced an actual open adoption I've been part of the process of an open adoption. In March we met who we thought was going to be our baby boys birthmother, we sat across the table from her and her mom and told her all about our lives and our families...personal information that you don't just tell any stranger. Once he was born she changed her mind so we'd never see her again right? Wrong. On Saturday one of my worst fears came true. While looking for a place to sit at the food court in the mall I turned and there she was...with him. I honestly thought my feet had gotten stuck in concrete...I couldn't move. I just stood there holding Josy and a plate of pizza...we just stood there and stared at each other. I know that there's the possibility I'll run into them again but I never want to. She looked pretty rough but he looked ok...I hope he's ok.
Just had to vent.
