When you are choosing your adoptive family, consider the type of communication you want with them. Here are the types of adoption to look for when choosing an adoptive family.

  • Semi-Open Adoption: A Semi-Open Adoption is when you are provided a choice about which parents will have the opportunity to raise your baby. Some personal contact may or may not occur between you and the adoptive family. Contact may contain just letters or photos. 
  • Closed Adoption: Closed Adoptions are when you and your adoptive parents have no contact with one another. Furthermore, this meant that you would never meet and never gain information about each other. It is fully closed off.
