We are the Dempsey’s and we first met with Adoption Information Services over 13 years ago after many years of infertility. Our boys are now 12 and 9 and we are always happy to celebrate National Adoption Month by sharing our story linked below!
Every adoption and child and family are unique. For our family, open adoption has been a blessing and we are thankful to AIS for educating us about open adoption from the beginning. Like any family relationship, open adoption is complicated. The ways in which birth families and adoptive families communicate are always evolving with technology and social media. Boundaries must be set and respected by everyone and may evolve over time depending on circumstances. We do not have all the answers, but are thankful to have information about our sons’ biological families and to let them know how much they are loved. Children can never have too many people who love and care for them and adoption has expanded our hearts and definition of family in so many ways!
