What is CO Open Adoption?
Open adoption is when you have ongoing contact with your child and the adoptive family. It’s an ongoing relationship that will create a long-lasting bond with your child and the adoptive family you choose. Based on your arrangement with the adoptive family, there will be contact through phone calls, video calls, letters, progress notes, pictures, and email. Having an open adoption means you are letting the adoptive family know personal information such as medical and financial. This type of adoption lets you get to know yourself as an individual and understand your situation. Putting your baby up for adoption in Colorado wasn’t an easy one. Having the adoptive family know you create a better relationship. There can be opportunities to get close to your child and be a part of their life in some way. We have four-holiday traditions you can start with your child when you choose open adoption in Colorado for this holiday season.
Four Holiday Traditions for Your Open Adoption
- Create a Holiday Card- It’s that time of year in December where getting a Christmas card is one of the simplest ways to show a person you care. You can buy or create a homemade holiday card for your child and send it to them. Get creative! In an open adoption, you may know some of your child’s interests. If they like a certain show or toy, create a card that has those images. Add a few cheesy holiday puns. Most importantly, decorate and put your love into the words you write.
- Plan a Holiday Video Chat- If you discuss with the adoptive family, having a Christmas video chat can be arranged whether it’s on Christmas Day, Christmas Eve, or on Hanukkah. If you plan to send gifts to your child and watch them open them, this can create memories for them and yourself. Every year you can watch them grow and have a raw reaction from the gifts you give them. It may be through video chat, but you are a big part of their life.
- Create a Homemade Ornament for Your Child- Making homemade gifts is a special treat this winter season. If this is your first Christmas with your child after the adoption process, make them their very first Christmas ornament. You can use a picture you have of them or decorate it however you wish. You can decorate it with their name or put an important word or phrase. As long as it’s coming from the heart, the adoptive family and child will find it meaningful and from the heart.
- Send Your Child a Gift- Since it’s the Holiday season, gifts are the most logical thing to receive. In an open adoption, you know the updates from the adoptive parents. You may even communicate with the child themselves. It doesn’t matter if this is your first year or five years of spending a Holiday with your child. Your care and thought into the gift should be a wonderful experience. Through your gift, you get to show that you are present in their life and that you know them well. Being the birth mother means you brought their life into the world, you may not be parenting them, but you are an important person in their life. Expressing that through a gift speaks volumes, which they will appreciate.
I hope these Holiday traditions inspire you to give back to your child. We make open adoption simple and easy. Any gifts you have, we will be more than happy to accommodate you. Have a happy holiday.
