Video chat rocks my world!

Jen and I have been talking about doing a video chat since before Mother's Day, and (like many things) it just didn't happen, didn't happen. It came up again this week, and then out of the blue, Jen asked me if I wanted to do a video chat--now!

I got to talk to Jen and Ian for over half an hour. It was fantastic! Ian sang me some songs, and I applauded. I asked him about his favorite foods, colors, toys, and animals. It was wonderful just to see his face. We have the same teeth, which I just never noticed before.

Talk about open adoption! This is it, and it is wonderful. I love my son, I love his parents, and I am happy as a clam. What a great evening.


  1. Oh my gosh. I just found your blog today via a link from the OA round table and reading this post was like a hammer whacking me on the head.

    It doesn't matter that my daughter's b-family lives over 3,000 miles from us. She can still interact with them on a video chat! That is by the far, the most marvelous idea I've heard of and I don't know why I never thought of it.

    THANK YOU!!!
