fcws-adoption-familyInvestigating adoption is a mature and responsible decision. Studies indicate that adopted children are better positioned economically, academically, and emotionally than those children raised in foster care or by biological parents who do not want to (or cannot) take care of them.

Children whose birth parents choose adoption know that they are wanted – first by the mom who gave them life, and also by their adoptive family. You can take your time because exploring adoption requires no commitments – and in most states adoption cannot by legally finalized until after the baby is born.

Birth parents get to be in control of the adoption plan and usually choose between three types of adoption: open, partially open, and confidential/closed.

Open Adoption

Not only can you choose your child’s family, you can also communicate directly with them about your child through letters, pictures, and possibly even phone calls or visits. Your child will grow up knowing who you are.

Partially Open Adoption

You can choose the type of family your child grows up in. You may learn how your child is doing through pictures or letters that the adoption agency shares with you. You usually will not know your child’s full name or location

Confidential (Closed) Adoption

If you decide that you do not want contact with your child later, the adoption agency or lawyer will choose your baby’s new family. You and the family won’t know details about each other’s identity, but the agency may share medical information that will help the family care for your child.
