What is Open or Semi Open Adoption?

modern open adoptionIf you are considering giving your baby up for adoption, and you are unsure what open adoption is, you’ve come to the right place. In open adoption, the birth parent may choose the adoptive family themselves, rather than having an agency choose the family for them. You may choose the family that best meets your needs and those of your child, or if you prefer, we can select a family for you. Birth parents and adoptive parents have a variety of options available. Lifetime provides a wide selection of loving families who are waiting to adopt. Through open or semi open adoption, birth parents may decide on the amount of contact they wish to have. Some women want letters and photos, others want visits or phone calls after the adoption, and some want no contact at all. The choice is up to the birth parent and the adoptive family.
