Open adoption is for the birth parent (s) that would like to have a relationship with both the birth child and the adoptive parent (s). Where they’ll send:

  • Pictures 
  • Videos
  • Messages 
  • Emails 

For the birth parent (s) to choose an open adoption, they’ll have to share contact information. With the adoptive parent (s), so they’ll be able to keep in contact. When choosing open adoption, the birth parent (s) are given the option to let the adoptive parent (s) be in the room. While the birth mother is giving birth. They’ll also be able to see the birth child after the birth as well.

If sharing contact information is not for you and you’d rather the adoption agency handle that. The birth parent (s) can choose semi-open adoption. Hence the name, unlike in open adoption. Where they’re able to send pictures, videos, messages, and emails, in a semi-open adoption, the birth parent (s) are only able to send pictures back and forth. 

Finally, in a closed adoption. This is for the birth parent (s) that want the adoption agency to handle everything, from choosing the adoptive parent (s) to handling the communication. They would rather the adoptive parent (s) not be in the room during the birth. Instead of the birth parent (s) seeing the birth child after the birth. They would rather the adoptive parent (s) see them instead. When given the chance to spend time with the birth child. During the 48-72 hours before signing the adoption papers. The birth parents (s) would rather the adoptive parent (s) spend time with the birth child instead.
