Amanda Explains How Open Adoption Has Blessed Her Family

Amanda is a mom of three boisterous young children, but motherhood did not come easily to her. After years of infertility, Amanda and her husband learned more about open adoption and decided to take the plunge.

Open adoption has changed her life in a powerful way. “I’m always speechless when I talk about it,” she says. “It’s one of the best experiences of my life. We’re so grateful for our birth moms and our children.”

Of her relationship with her kids’ birth parents she adds, “They’re our biggest cheerleaders. They want our family to succeed more than anybody else on this planet. They want our marriage to be solid. They want us to be successful as a couple. They want us to be successful as parents and they want our family to succeed. So we have all these extra people praying for us, loving us, loving our children. And I just think that really adoption has blessed us – that we have so many more people rooting for us and wanting the best for us.”
