We’re here to help you better understand the adoption process so you can feel confident in your journey ahead. You can do this.
Choose From Three Types of Adoption
With adoption, you have options. Choose from three adoption plans depending on the type of relationship you want with your child and adoptive parents.
Open adoption is the most flexible type of adoption and the most popular type. With this adoption, the birth mother gets to meet with the adoptive family before the child is born.
The adoptive family and birth mother decide on what type of relationship they want and how all communication and visits are done. They will exchange identifying information like full names, addresses, and phone numbers.
If you desire more privacy and confidentiality regarding your adoption, closed adoption is a great fit. Some mothers need this type of adoption for safety concerns or if they desire to move on.
Lastly, there’s an option in between. Though uncommon, some women choose semi-open adoption. This type of adoption allows contact between the adoptive family and the birth mother, but it’s all done through an adoption agency or third party. It’s a bit more private than an open adoption, as all identifying information is concealed.
