Our friendship with our daughter’s biological mom and family is so special. A long time ago, another adoptive parent told us that, when you meet your baby and they are placed in your arms, your entire adoption journey will all make sense. We feel that is so true as Upbring facilitated our meeting with Laurel’s biological family and they, along with Laurel, are a beautiful addition to our lives. The open friendship (because it truly feels like one) that we have with Laurel’s biological parents and their families is so special. The love we all share for our baby, Laurel, is embraced by each of us and we all want the very best for her.
