Is Adoption Right For You?

Many women say “I could never give my baby away,” but adoption provides a family for your baby. Adoption does not look the same as it has in the past. There are many types of adoption, and you as the birth mother, have the option to choose an Open Adoption and to determine the details of the adoption.

While Choose Hope Women’s Center is not an adoption agency, we can offer some insight and direction for this positive choice. The birth mother, in turn, can face her future with courage and hope. It’s possible that adoption is much different from what you imagine. There is no obligation to consider this option, but you have nothing to lose by learning more about it.

Type of Adoption Plans

The type of adoption plan you choose solely depends on what type of relationship you want with your child and the adoptive family. There are three plans to choose from: open, closed, and semi-open adoption.

Open Adoption

The most common type of adoption these days is open adoption! Open adoption is the plan for you if you want to have a continual relationship with your child. 

With open adoption, you and the adoptive family will exchange identifying information like full names, addresses, and phone numbers. You will come together to decide on the communication and physical contact everyone is comfortable with moving forward.

Closed Adoption

Closed adoption may be a better fit for you if you prefer to remain anonymous as you go about your adoption journey. Less information is better sometimes.

With a closed adoption plan, there is no contact with the adoptive family or your child. There’s no commitment to build relationships. The birth certificate is sealed with no identifying information shared. 

Semi-Open Adoption

Lastly, there is a semi-open adoption, a mix of the other two types of adoption. If remaining anonymous while also knowing your child and the adoptive family sounds like a good fit, a semi-open adoption plan is for you.

With semi-open adoption, you’ll have contact with the family, but contact is made through a third party such as the adoption agency or adoption specialist you choose. Most of the time, the only identifying information that‘s shared are your first names.
