Is Open Adoption Confusing for a Child?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on January 30, 2014

No, in fact, it is typically far less confusing than closed adoption. Consider this: rather than spending their whole lives wondering about their birth parents and the circumstances of their adoption, they know their story.

When adoption is explained from a very early age, it seems completely normal to a child. You are mom and dad; the fact that they grew in someone’s womb is simply biology. Open adoption offers them a chance to know their “tummy mommy” and why she chose you as their parents.
