The Great Wide Open

When Rachel Westbrook found out she was pregnant, she knew that she could not keep her baby, but she also knew that she needed to be in his life. Doug Dotson and Maura Dillon had been married 10 years before they discovered they could not have a baby on their own and would need to adopt to grow their family. This is a story of the open adoption of Reed William Max Dotson and the journey his birth parents and adoptive parents are experiencing together.
