Conversations on Open Adoption - Kandice and Alex, Part II

"How were those last 48 hours for you before actually signing the paperwork?"
"It was quite emotional, to say the least. I was just trying to enjoy every moment I could have with him but not bond too much. I know that it was for the better for my son, but that was the very hardest part." - Kandice, birth mom

Watch as Kandice, a birth mom and Alex, her son's adoptive mom continue their conversation on how they navigate their open adoption.
