I can’t believe it has almost been a year since I first wrote this for America Adopts!
Juliana, who works for a non-profit organization in Las Vegas and recently started an MBA program, hopes that sharing her story will give others a deeper understanding about what it means to grow up in an open adoption. To find out more about her and her thoughts about adoption, visit her Facebook page, That Adopted Girl
1. What does open adoption mean to you?
It is having the ability to ask your birth parents the questions that adoptees in closed adoptions rarely get answered. It means never wondering if you were given up because your birth parents didn’t love you or didn’t want you. It means being able to develop a thorough understanding of how and why you wound up somewhere other than in a home with your biological parents. At least this is what I experience/experienced.
LOVE always and forever,
