Adoption may not be what you think, as it has evolved over the years. There are several adoption plan options, and you can decide which is suitable for you because you have the opportunity to tailor the plan to your life. Adoption options include:

  • Open Adoption: Free-flowing communication takes place between you, the adoptive family, and the child. You have the opportunity to be a part of the child’s life, watch them achieve milestones, and take part in welcomed visits. Communication occurs directly between you and the family, and you can create a life-long relationship and forge wholesome friendships within this unique adoption plan.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: Communication still takes place but allows you the room to decide when and how often you participate. For your comfort, communication will occur through a third party, an adoption professional, who will help you manage your communications.
  • Closed Adoption: No communication will take place; your confidentiality and identity will be completely protected. You will remain completely anonymous, and all identifying records will be legally sealed.

Many women choose adoption and feel called toward this option. There is no one way to feel about adoption. It is normal to experience an array of emotions, and it’s important to know there is no wrong way to feel. Adoption can be an emotional decision and your feelings are valid.
