Dawne Era of Warwick, R.I. and her adopted son, Grady


This April 2008 photo provided by the family shows Dawne Era of Warwick, R.I. and her adopted son, Grady, on a holiday trip to London. With Era’s blessing, Grady, who is now 23, has maintained contact with his birthmother thought his life, via phone conversations, Facebook and occasional face-to-face meetings. Experts say such "open" adoptions are now the norm, and only about 5 percent entail no ongoing contact with the birthparents. (Associated Press)
