Adoption Plan in Colorado

With an adoption plan, this includes your adoption types:
Open Adoption
Having open communication with your child and the adoptive family. This type of adoption is primarily personal. Forms of contact can be made through video and phone calls, scheduled visiting, emails, and letters with updates on the child’s upbringing.
Closed Adoption
You take your privacy very seriously and do not wish to communicate with your child or adoptive family. You want no personal information exchanged. Your goal is to choose a loving family for your child.
Semi-Open Adoption
You don’t want a personal relationship with your child or adoptive family. However, you’d appreciate consistent updates. You make boundaries of communication. Forms of contact include phone and video calls, scheduled visits, professional emails, and letters. The Adoption Choices of Colorado mediate everything.

What are Your Adoption Preferences?

Next, you decide on specific preferences of what your ideal adoptive family would have. Some of these questions you might want to consider are:
Would you prefer the adoptive family within your neighborhood or the same county? Is farther away in a different city, state, or country a better option?
Based on your own experience of being raised, would you prefer an adoptive family with the same mindset when raising children or something slightly different from your upbringing?
Is having an adoptive family with the same race your preference, or does it not matter regardless because they will love and care for your child?
Religious Affiliation
Whether you believe in a particular religion or not, would you consider having an adoptive family with a belief a priority?
Family Type
Would you prefer an adoptive family with parents familiar with adoption, kids of their own, same-sex couples, single fathers, or mother parents?
