While some may not realize, there are actually different forms of adoption, all of which come with their own unique advantages and disadvantages. One of the main types of adoption is known as open adoption. Where other forms of adoption limit or even prohibit birth parents from coming into contact with the adopted child, open adoption allows birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptive children to all have contact with one another during and after the adoption process.
Open adoption allows children to get to know their birth parents, should all parties agree to routine contact. This contact can include anything from phone calls and emails to in-person visits should it be deemed healthy for everyone involved. While some are skeptical about open adoption, it can actually provide numerous benefits for everyone involved in the adoption process.
Not only do children receive answers about who their birth parents are, they also receive love and understanding as well. Birth parents get to still be involved in their child’s life through routine visits, calls, and other forms of communication. Adoptive parents get the ease of mind knowing that their child knows that they are loved by all parents while also providing the truth that many adopted children may live with their entire lives.
At the end of the day, open adoption and other forms of adoption are in place to keep everyone involved in the adoption process as safe and happy as possible. Have a question about open adoption and other adoption processes? Contact Adoption Dreams Come True
