One critical choice that prospective parents must make is whether to pursue an adoption that is open or closed or a hybrid representing some aspects of both types. Open adoption refers to a situation where adoptive parents exchange information or photos and typically maintain contact with birth parents following the placement. How extensive the communications will be is up to the parties. Though the overall trend has been toward open adoptions, some families still prefer the closed process where neither side is given any information about the other. We take a close look at clients’ needs and help them determine which type of placement works best for their unique situation.
