Need to speak with a confidential, compassionate voice that will listen to any questions, and can provide much-needed education and knowledge about your situation? Contact us today. Please note, your identification and personal information will remain totally confidential.
The birth parents and adoptive parents share identifying information.
Birth parents can choose the family they think is ideal for their child and have the opportunity to get to know the adoptive family throughout the pregnancy. Over the years, they have the chance to share photos, letters, and visit with the adoptive family.
Open adoption is NOT shared or co-parenting. But, the birth parents have an opportunity to have an ongoing relationship with the adoptive family and the child.
Adoptive and birth families form a close, ongoing relationship that benefits the birth parents, adoptive parents, and most importantly, the child.
Each situation is different. Some adoptive and birth families form a natural, easy connection, have a comfortable ongoing relationship, and become “extended family.” Other birth parents prefer getting pictures and updates over the years.
For birth parents and adoptive parents, semi-open adoption might be a fitting choice for those looking for a “happy medium” between an open and closed adoption.
Semi-open adoptions are called “mediated adoptions” because communication between a child's birth and adoptive parents is organized through the adoption agency. This communication can be in letters, emails, photos, phone calls, or even in-person visits.
Semi-open adoption is considered beneficial to the adoption triad because there is some communication between all three parties.
A closed adoption is when the adoptive family and the birth parents share little to no contact.
Closed adoption means that any identifying information remains confidential and is often not shared between the birth and adoptive parents.
Even if a prospective birth parent wishes to have a closed adoption, they are still in charge of their adoption plan. If they want to, they can still choose their child’s adoptive family and may even decide to have some contact with them before the adoption.
