Is Open Adoption
Right For Me

When it comes to openness, every adoption is different. These days, most adoptions have varying levels of openness, but can also be closed, if desired. Each adoption is as unique as the individuals involved. We'll help you explore options and decide what feels best for your situation.

Benefits of Open Adoption

Adoption has changed a lot over the last decade. Most of the time it looks nothing like what you have seen on TV and in the movies. Almost all adoptions have some sort of openness as birth parents and adoptive parents almost always have some sort of contact before placement. You get to decide what sort of relationship you would like to have.

As you consider adoption, you likely have many questions. It can be intimidating to make that first call, but we are here for you. There are many factors that will be important to explore when making a decision about parenting or adoption. We are here to support you in whatever decision feels right in your situation, without any pressure. It is an important decision, one that will be best made with accurate information and compassionate support.

Adoption is a loving and thoughtful choice where biological parents choose a qualified, loving, stable, and permanent adoptive family for their child. Through the adoption process, a person or couple legally become the parents of a child who is biologically related to someone else.

Parents usually choose adoption because they care about their child and his or her well-being. They recognize that adoptive parents may be in a better position to raise the child. Often they are looking for a loving, stable, permanent home for their child.

Parents have a fundamental right to parent their children. A parent should never be forced to place a child for adoption. At Adoption Life, we will never pressure you to place a child for adoption if you do not feel it is the right decision for you. Sometimes it takes time to sort out how you feel about this huge decision, and Adoption Life professionals will be here to help support you regardless of your decision.
