How Do I Start My Adoption Plan?
When starting your adoption plan, the first step is to decide on what adoption type fits your circumstances. and list the preferences you want in your adoptive family.
- Open Adoption is when you want a more personal relationship with your child and adoptive family. You want to be a part of your child’s life. You want to plan personal, consistent communication. Forms of contact can be scheduled whenever you want. You can do phone and video calls, in-person visits, emails, and letters with pictures.
- Closed Adoption can be the ideal option for you if you do not want any personal communication or contact with the child or the adoptive parent. Based on your circumstances, you don’t want your personal information shared, and that’s valid.
- Semi-Open Adoption is similar to open adoption. The types of contact are the same. It is up to you to decide on the consistency of communication. You do not want a personal relationship, just updates on your child’s upbringing. All forms of communication will be monitored and mediated by our adoption agency.
Choosing the Right Adoptive Family
The second step of an adoption plan is to list the preferences you want in your adoptive family. Here are some examples of questions you can ask yourself about the ideal adoptive family.
- Do I want the adoptive family in a nearby location, or am I comfortable with more distance?
- Do I consider religion in my upbringing? Does it matter what religion they are or if they share the same religious values? Will I even want to consider religion when I don’t follow any?
- Are race and ethnicity a key factor in my choosing an adoptive family?
- Would I want the adoptive family to share the same morals and values? Do I want them to meet all of them or just a few important ones that matter to me?
- Would I want the adoptive family to have similar ways of child upbringing?
