I sent an email to my best friend, who is a fellow adoptive mama.
You see, my little family of three is going on our first real vacation as a family next week.
In an airplane.
I realized yesterday that if something happens to us, Little Man’s birthmother needs to be notified.
So I asked my friend to be repsonsible for that.
If something happens to us, she will call our lawyer to call LM’s birthmother.
I don’t really think anything will happen, but I realized she deserved to know if it does.
This is how my adoptive mama brain works.

enjoy your trip!
and you're not crazy- i've had the same thought
not weird at all. it's definitely a scenario i hadn't thought of, but i'm glad you brought it up.
Totally normal I think.
I just watched some old friends lose their son to cancer and he was adopted. They made sure his birthmom and siblings got to see him before he died. I know another lady that is a birthmom and she searched years later only to find out her birthdaughter died when she was young. So, yeah, I think it's a good thing to make sure she knows. But nothing's going to happen.
