#adoption #openadoption not just about the love and connection to a birth mother or birth father it is the family connection to the whole family that is important #familylove
It has become more and more important to our family that the ties our girls have and keep are not just to their birth mother or birth father but through to their siblings, to aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents even to great grandparents.
The main focus started and continues to be with visits with their birth mother or birth father. We have come to a time where we want to make sure that our girls know and have a deeper connection to the grandparents and other family members and to have these ties and connections. Get togethers are looked at now not to just include them but to have separate visits when we can. Time spent with each other is time well spent.
Why you ask? Sometimes in your life there may be times your connection to someone may fade in an ebb and flow way but doesn’t break and you feel the need to reach over that connection and strengthen the ties above and beyond it. Our intent is to keep these family ties and not limit them to just one or two people. To have our girls understand the width and breadth of the love that surrounds them and the love they can share on their own through their families. Our hope and dream is that they never feel too separated from those they are connected to by biology.
