After meeting with birth mother

We met Reid’s birth mother and her boyfriend at a park downtown tonight.  We picked that location because it was far enough from our home, but close enough for her that we could still have some anonymity.

She lives in our city, and not really far from us.  There is a real possibility that we could run into her in the area, especially in the mall close to our home.

The visit went really well.  She was really glad to see him.  She interacted well with him.  We had good conversation with them.

We really have no concerns with meeting her.  She really is not malicious, she just was not able to parent a child.

When it was left, she was sad to see him go.  We definitely will maintain contact, mostly by e-mail.

The agency hosts a Christmas party for open adoptions.  We’ll see if she shows up.

We explained to Tate that we were seeing Reid’s birth mother.  He asked some questions, and asked if he could see a picture of his birth mother.  Hopefully there will be more information available as he gets older.
