Will I Have A Relationship With My Child If I Place Them For Adoption?

Topics: Abortion, Uncategorized

Adoption looks different from state to state and even agency to agency. No matter which agency you work with, adoption plans are based on the amount of contact you want with your child. 

If you’re hoping to build a relationship with your child after placing them, choose an open adoption plan.

Types of Adoption Plans

There are three adoption plans to choose one. Learn about each and select the best one for you and your child. 

Open Adoption

An open adoption plan allows you and the adoptive family you have chosen to exchange identifiable information. You can choose to share one another’s full names, phone numbers, email addresses, and possibly home addresses. 

Open adoption builds a strong bond between your child, you, and the adoptive family. 

Closed Adoption

If you are looking for anonymity to keep your identity private, choose a closed or confidential adoption plan. Although the growth of social media makes it difficult to remain anonymous these days, you can guarantee your adoption documents are closed.

In a closed adoption the birth family and the adoptive family share no identifying information. The entire process remains confidential. The courts seal the record of the biological mother on the original birth certificate. 

Semi-Open Adoption

Like a closed adoption, the birth mother and adoptive family share no identifying information, except possibly first names. You and the adoptive parents send and receive letters, cards, and photos, but it isn’t through direct contact.
