What is open adoption ?
"Open Adoptions" are those adoptions in which birth and adoptive parents have met each other and plan for some type of ongoing communication through letters, pictures,email, phone calls or in-person meetings and visits. Birth parents today want to take an active role in choosing the adoptive parent for the baby they cannot care for. They want the peace of mind of knowing who will parent their child and knowing they made an informed decision in choosing the family. Adoptive parents likewise desire to know the birth parents in order to better understand the child they adopt, and to pass on to the child a more complete sense of his or her heritage, both social and genetic.
