Hi, I do have a daughter by an open adoption, and this caught my eye. There are other similar ones I guess. I am in an adoption one also.
anyways, I have adopted the daughter of my niece, and my niece has since had another daughter with the same man and is now engaged to him. Life is always interesting isn't it? So far no problems, as Bree is only 4 going on 5, but I anticipate some confusion etc. later.
She calls my SIL Grandma and that SIL visits a lot. (we do live 1600 miles away, but still, 2-3 times a year.) And all my nieces are her aunts and uncles. Oh, and we since gave birth to another son, and she is Grandma to him also, she is so sweet about it, so there is no, "No, I"m only Bree's grandma". So far, its been working out pretty much lovely. But I worry in the back of my brain that someday there might be difficulties. But I"m willing to chance it, to have my beautiful angel.
