Thinking About Adoption?
Are you considering adoption? We are here to offer you free and valuable information about adoption. Additionally, we will answer all your questions and provide you with emotional support as you work through the decision-making process.
Adoption is the legal process of placing your child into the care of another family. In recent years, adoption options have become more expansive. These options allow you to choose the type of adoption that works best for you and your situation. If you would like to learn more about the adoption process, you can make an appointment with us today.
There are three types of adoption available. Each has varying degrees of contact with the child and the adoptive family. Learn more about each type of adoption.
Open adoption allows for the most communication between you, the adoptive family, and your child. You will have an opportunity to meet the family and learn about them before the adoption process is complete. After the birth of your child, you can maintain contact with the family and communicate with your child on a previously agreed-upon basis.
With a closed adoption, all your information will remain private. You will have no direct contact with the adoptive family or your child. All communication between you and the adoptive family will take place through a third party, like a lawyer. Additionally, you will not have contact with your child until he or she is of legal age.
A semi-open adoption involves a mix of the open and closed options. Basically, a semi-open adoption involves less contact with the adoptive family during the adoption process and usually involves little or no contact with the child after he or she is born. Communication is limited for this type of adoption.
Reasons to Consider Adoption
Adoption is a viable option for many women, even though not everyone gives it serious consideration. For your reference, here are a few reasons why women and couples choose adoption:
- Adoption will remove the financial burden you would encounter as a parent
- Adoptive families will provide a healthy environment to raise your child
- Adoption will give you peace of mind that your child will be raised by a capable, loving family
- Adoption gives you the chance to keep in touch with your child via an open adoption
- If you believe your current stage of life is not suitable for raising a child, adoption affords you the chance to place your child in an environment where he or she can thrive
