Open Adoption in Texas
To understand open adoption with Adoption Choices of Texas, we must first define open adoption. In its most simplest definition, this means that birth parents select the adoptive family and have the option to stay in contact with them throughout the child’s life. The amount of the openness can vary based on the level of contact desired whether it is through pictures, letters, phone calls and/or visits – and this is decided and agreed between the birth parents and adoptive parents prior to birth.
It is normal and even expected to have anxiety about open adoption at first. Other people’s stories and experiences can help you overcome your own fears and concerns!

“Birth mothers choose open adoptions because we want to see it through to the end, to be there for our children throughout their young lives to and to ensure that all of their questions are answered and that they never feel unwanted.” ~Bethany, BM
