THIS is the beauty of open adoption.
Almost four years ago, we gained a beautiful baby girl thanks to our birthmommy Megan, who was forced to make the toughest, most sacrificial decision of her life.
But the story didn't end there!
It continues on. Year after year.
Through open adoption, Caroline has another extended family that loves her and and cares for her. She gets more grandparents! And they don't have to wonder how she's doing, and Caroline will never have to wonder about them! No secrets. No hiding. No wondering.
We are family.
And today we enjoyed a wonderful visit with them!
This was our get-together last year, and I love how each year it's just like picking up right where you left off.
This year Brayden (Caroline's full sibling who is 5) and Caroline were high energy playing together! Whether it was shining flashlights in the dark...
or drawing together...
or pretending to be "bad guys" together, :) you couldn't separate them.
Caroline was sooo excited to see birthmommy Megan.
...and I think Megan was pretty excited to hold both her babies again!
Bet you can't see any brother/sister resemblance here, huh?!
