Research Your Options: the Types Of Adoption
One of the first things you need to look into is what type of adoption you are considering. There are three to choose from: open, semi-open, or closed. Open adoption and semi-open adoption are the most popular choices in today’s adoption world.
- An open adoption means that you and the adoptive family know each other’s personal information, and have the opportunity to build a relationship and stay in contact as the child grows up.
- A closed adoption means there is no contact between you and the adoptive parents at all. Personal information is not shared with either party to keep things private and separate.
- A semi-open adoption is a bit of a mix between the two others. It allows you and the adoptive parents to contact each other through the adoption agency. Many expectant mothers choose this option because it permits more privacy than an open adoption, but is less restricted than a closed one.
Having a firm grasp on what kind of adoption you want leads to you finding your adoptive family much quicker. This kind of planning also allows you and the child’s adoptive family to set boundaries and rules with each other. Simplifying the process of giving up a child for adoption.
