Thinking About Adoption?
Though adoption can be a challenging road to take, it can also open new doors for you and your baby’s future. In a time of uncertainty, this could be an option worth considering.
Times have changed drastically when it comes to the process of adoption. It used to be an option where you had little control, but now you are in the driver’s seat! With adoption, you get to choose how you go about the process and how much access you want with your child. It’s quite normal these days to involve the birth mom in the child’s life if desired. Adoption is a great option for a mother who needs help and support.
Is It Right for You?
Adoption is a great fit for many, but not everyone. It’s important to talk it through with someone you trust and really think it over. You may have a ton of questions flooding your mind, like:
- Do I get to choose the family?
- Can I receive financial assistance?
- What if I change my mind in the process?
- What is an adoption plan?

Types of Adoption
Maybe you didn’t even know that there is more than one adoption type – there is! The great thing about adoption is the many choices you have when planning. You get to call the shots on how much interaction you have with your child. Choose between an open, closed, or semi-open adoption plan.
Open adoption is the most interactive type of adoption. You and the adoptive family get access to one another through phone calls, face-to-face meetings, and letters. If you choose this option, you also have the choice of meeting the family beforehand. You will get the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life if both parties agree.
With a closed adoption, you remain anonymous to the child and the adoptive family. There is no interaction, and completely private. Your child can choose to find you after they turn 18 if they wish.
A semi-closed adoption option involves communication between a third-party adoption professional. This means that you choose how much communication and information you want to share and receive. If you wish to see your child, the visits will be scheduled and supervised by an adoption professional.
