Q:should I be worried about having an abortion?
Learn about adoption to see if it’s the best choice for you. Making an adoption plan can be a very empowering choice. Financial assistance for medical and living expenses is sometimes available for the birth mother, along with many other benefits. We can help provide adoption information and referrals.
Open adoptions are relatively common and provide the most contact between the birth mother and the adoptive family. Through an open adoption you will have more interaction with the adoptive family for example pictures, letters and sometimes in-person family events.
Interaction between the birth mother and the adoptive family is facilitated by a third party which is usually the adoption agency or attorney. All semi-open adoptions are different, and the level of contact and relationship you have with the adoptive family can vary.
Process by which an infant is adopted, and the record of the biological parent(s) is kept sealed. Closed adoptions don’t allow for ongoing contact between the birth parents and adoptive family. The entire adoption is facilitated by an agency or other intermediaries.
