When my husband and I were working on getting approved to adopt, we didn’t even think about having an open adoption. Then we went to a panel of birth parents sharing their experiences of placing their children for adoption, and that all changed. We realized they were people just like us and that they had more love in their hearts than anyone we had ever met.

She and her husband opened their hearts to open adoption five years ago and now enjoy a beautiful relationship with their children's birth mothers, who are best friends, and their son's birth father. She has served as a co-chair for a chapter of Families Supporting Adoption, and enjoys doing adoption presentations for schools in her community. When she isn't changing poopy diapers and making mac n cheese, she spends her time teaching dance, attempting to exercise, and spending time with her husband, Mike. Instagram ID: Kiralm
