Thinking of adoption?
Adoption can be bitter-sweet. It can be a difficult decision to make, even though you know you’re providing a hopeful couple the opportunity to complete their family. Some women feel they are called towards adoption, and it’s the right fit for them. Others, however, aren’t sure what adoption looks like and if it’s what they want. It’s important to remember there is no right or wrong way to feel toward adoption, but understanding what this option can look like can assist you in knowing if it’s right for you.
What Are some types of Adoption Plans?
Adoption is an umbrella term that has an array of options under it. A few of these are:
- Open Adoption: Allows complete transparency between you and the adoptive family to share identifying information, stay in touch, visit, call, and more.
- Semi-Open Adoption: This allows you to choose how much communication and contact you participate in. All communications will go through an adoption professional to help you regulate how much communication you decide to join in.
- Closed Adoption: No identifying records or documents are given to the child or adoptive family. You remain anonymous, and all records are legally sealed to protect your identity.
You have complete control over deciding what is suitable for you and your child. No choice is wrong, and here at HopePlace, you are in a safe, supportive environment to gain the understanding you seek and choose if an option is right for you.
