We went the open adoption route and it's been great. I was the Lamaze coach for the birth mother for my older son's birth. The biological mother's parents have become defacto grandparents for my boys - something they otherwise would not have had. We spend holidays with the biological family and even attend church together on occasion.
We told each of our boys at a young age about the adoptions and this has made our family stronger. Our boys know they were wanted and chosen. They would have figured out the adoption themselves anyway since they resemble their biological mother's family and don't look like my wife and me at all.
I'm happy that you were able to adopt as well. I'm sure you have found it as fulfilling as me or you wouldn't have done it four times.

Yes, it has been amazing. But i adopted a sibling set of four (the girls came first — planned — and then one year later, the boys — not planned by me, only God).
So I’m keeping them altogether and life is awesome.
