Adoption

Find out if an adoption plan is the right choice for you.

We’re here to help you explore all your pregnancy options, including the many choices adoption provides.

There are so many options available to you from the type of plan to the type of family you want your child to have. Some of the different types of adoption plans include but are not limited to open, semi-open and closed. When you make an adoption plan, you both choose a family for your child and choose your own future.

Open Adoption – an open adoption is a form of adoption in which the biological and adoptive families have access to varying degrees of each other’s personal information and have an option of contact.

Semi-Open Adoption – a semi-open adoption occurs when the potential birth mother or birth families experience non-identifying interaction with the adoptive families. In most cases, interaction is facilitated by a third party which is usually the adoption agency or attorney.

Closed Adoption – a closed adoption (also called “confidential” adoption and sometimes “secret” adoption) is a process by which an infant is adopted by another family, and the record of the biological parent(s) is kept sealed.

In most cases, financial assistance for medical and living expenses is available for the birth mother, along with many other benefits.
