As a birth mother, I believe that each person involved in the adoption triangle
gains something by openings up their lives and finding out such simple things as where the colour of their eyes come from and it might be important to the child to hug a blood relative for the first time, Knowledge is powerful and for the adoptive person, they deserve answers to their questions, sometimes those questions maybe hard to answer for the birth mother.we were one of the very blessed families that our reunion enriched each other’s lives. We are so thankful that our son wanted to find his birth family and that he just has more people that love him.I know that not everyone is as lucky and blessed as our story however some other adoptive stories can work out for other people.Good luck

    I couldn’t agree more Suzie. I for one have never had any interest in finding my own. But would be an interesting watch… The grass isn’t always greener…

    My friend didn’t have any interest either Jennie , the birth mother went looking for her , if she hadn’t come looking then my friend wouldn’t have searched for her . it’s an interesting programme to watch though .
