Adoption used to mean a quiet birth, a transported child, and records about the biological parents sealed under law. That began changing decades ago.
Now from the Rogue Valley comes a true story of a completely open adoption. The book Open: An Adoption Story in Three Voices is the work of three women: an adoptive mother, her adopted daughter, and the woman who gave birth to the daughter.
They wrote under the pen names Alaina O'Connell, Sara O'Connell, and Alex Porter. Their real names are Marlene Wegener, Tina Zimmerman, and Molly Mish.
All three visit to talk about their experiences with open adoption.
