Open adoption isn’t just a trendy fad like the Birkin bag we all have our eye on, so why does it seem to be getting so much buzz lately? It’s because open adoption vs. closed adoption has actually been studied and found to be beneficial to adoptees. But why is open adoption so important to those who were adopted? With adoptions of the past being mostly closed, we learned a lot of valuable lessons and took the necessary steps to make changes to help children who were adopted with the many things they felt they were lacking. What can open adoption offer your child and your family? Why should a birth mother be willing to keep communication open? The answers are simple.
