When Adoptive Parents meet and interact with Birth Parents it is important to remember, these meeting are designed so that both parties can get to know each other. The best advice we can offer is be yourself. If the plan is a Closed Adoption, it is important that Adoptive Parents and Birth Parents remember to not disclose any information or details which might disclose identities. It is always a good idea to show empathy for the Birth Parents situation and for Birth Mothers health and wellbeing, but do not interrogate or ask for personal information which may well result in alienating her. Instead, if you have questions on social and personal history, or medical matters, let us know and we will handle that for you.
