Are you considering adoption?
If you are considering adoption and feeling a little overwhelmed, it’s understandable. You might have questions about the process! Adoption has changed over the decades but has always been a significant decision.
Nowadays, women have a lot of control over the process. They can choose the adoptive couple and the type of adoption plan that is best for them. For many women, adoption is a beautiful but bittersweet journey filled with a variety of emotions.
Choose From Various Adoption Plans
There are three adoption plans to choose from. Find the one that may be a good fit for you and your lifestyle. Each plan is different and requires much thought to make the best decision. These plans include:
- Open adoption: An open adoption allows a lot of freedom and flexibility for a birth mother. This option might be best for women who want to form a relationship with their child and be in their life. During an open adoption, the woman has contact with the child and their adoptive family through letters, visits, and other methods. A lot of control and freedom is offered during the process, leaving the woman to choose the best possible plan for her and the child.
- Semi-open adoption: With this type of adoption plan, the birth mother has contact with the child and family. However, all communication is handled through a third party, such as an adoption attorney or agency. This is best for women who wish for more privacy by using a third party to organize all communication and handle the details.
- Closed adoption: This option is best for women wanting to remain anonymous. With a closed adoption, the birth mother has no contact with the child, and the courts seal all records. She remains completely private, and the adoptive family will not know her identity.
