A Birth mother seeks advice

Navigating the arena of open adoption can be difficult for all sides of the adoption triad.  How much contact is good?  Will it confuse the child? How do you explain the relationship of everyone involved?
These are just some of the questions that adoptive parents and birth parents have regarding open adoption.  There are many helpful books that can aid in this process. Please see the discussion on Adoptive Families Circle website for more information.
