I am an adoptive parent. We have an open adoption. I need advice on what type of relationship to have with the birthfamily. My child is under the age of 1year old. The birthmother's mother is very involved since the birthmom is a minor. I have sent many, many pictures and we communicate over the phone alot. I have also allowed them to send packages. But lately I feel like the birthgrandmother is too involved. She calls alot and constantly reminds me of how my child and her child are alike. Sometimes it feels like we are co-parenting. I don't want to sever all ties since I was the one to say I will send pictures and allow 1 visit a year - she didn't want to at first.
