Adoptive Parents Answer “Why Open Adoption?”

Choosing adoption is just the first step. Before one proceeds, there are more decisions to make including the type of adoption you may want. From closed adoption, to open adoption, as well as something in-between, this choice will determine the type of relationship adoptive parents and adoptees may have with birth families.

For those who choose open adoption, one of the benefits is a greater, extended love for not only the child, but also the adoptive families and birth family members. When one puts the child first, insecurities leave and it is easier to make the right decision for all. Most importantly: all children, adopted or biological, need to know they are loved.
