A conversation with Lee Crawford and Brenda McCreight on everyday challenges.
How should adoptive parents approach their child’s birthparents about difficulties they are having with their child?
Brenda: The birthparents and grandparents having some limited, continued contact is very appropriate. But that doesn’t mean [birth parents] have a responsibility or access to what’s going on in your family, and I think that it is really important to not be over-sharing. They’re not entitled to know everything that’s going on.
