Types of Adoption
There are many options to choose from, giving you the opportunity to decide what kind of relationship you want with your child, if any.
Open Adoption Plan
The most common type of adoption is open adoption. With this plan, you have open communication with the adoptive family and exchange names, addresses, and phone numbers. Both parties agree on the amount of communication and physical contact everyone is comfortable with.
Closed Adoption Plan
With a closed adoption, the adoptive family and birth mom remain anonymous. The child’s birth certificate and identifying information are sealed after everything is finalized with the adoption. If you desire closure or worry about the safety of your child in your home, this is a great option.
Semi-open Adoption Plan
Semi-open adoption is a blend of open and closed adoption. There is communication between you, your child, and the adoptive family through the adoption agency or specialist you’ve chosen.
If knowing your child and their adoptive family while remaining anonymous sounds appealing, choose a semi-open adoption plan.
Choosing a Family
There is a lengthy process that the adoptive family goes through in order to become eligible for the adoption process. There are background checks, criminal checks, questionnaires, photos, and home studies are all done before being matched with a child.
