Adoption is an option some women are drawn to because they want to give a hopeful couple the opportunity to complete their family. Still, others are drawn to this later, even after giving birth.
No matter when you may consider adoption, it is a bittersweet process that can be done whenever you’re ready.
There are several different options you can choose from within the adoption umbrella, and the best part is you get to decide which is right for you.
What Types Of Adoption Are There?
There are three main types of adoption plans. Those include:
Open Adoption: Many adoptions today are open and allow free-flowing communication between the chosen adoptive couple and the birth mother. This will enable women to remain a large part of the child’s life and witness many happy occasions.
Semi-Open Adoption: Some women find they want to know their child and have a relationship with them, but they also need their space and time to do that. A semi-open adoption allows for this to happen. All communication will go through an adoption professional who can help you regulate when and how much contact you take part in.
Closed Adoption: Protects women’s confidentiality and allows them to remain anonymous. All identifying records will be legally sealed, and their identity will remain unknown.
What If I Have Something Else In Mind?
It’s important to remember that as long as both parties are willing, an adoption plan can change as the adoptive couple and birth mother become familiar and comfortable with one another, and as the child grows.
However, if you already have an idea of what you want your adoption plan to be, but don’t see it listed here, that can be discussed!
