What Is Adoption Like?
Adoption can be a rewarding yet challenging option. Some women feel drawn to adoption, while others who have never considered it might be surprised to find that adoption has many different options.
The three types of adoptions include:
- Open Adoption: allows you to exchange personal information, stay in touch, and remain a significant part of the child’s life.
- Semi-Open Adoption: allows you to still be a part of the child’s life, but a professional will assist in all communication to ensure you have the space you need.
- Closed Adoption: all identifying records are legally sealed, and both your and the child’s identities remain anonymous.
Adoption has drastically improved over the years, giving women the final say when it comes to their adoption.
Is Adoption for Me?
If you are not ready to be a parent, you can still give your baby the gift of life by choosing adoption. You can plan for your baby’s future by selecting a stable, loving family to care for your baby.
After birth, you can meet your baby and spend time with them. If you so choose, you may be able to get updates on your child’s progress or have ongoing visits throughout your child’s life while you continue pursuing your education or career goals.
Choosing An Adoptive Family
Deciding on an adoptive family is often the most challenging part of adoption. Most agencies have adoptive couples who come from a variety of backgrounds, and they have been screened and approved.
There are additional options, such as choosing a friend, family member, or someone who has been recommended to you. Your agency will discuss these options with you.
