What’s great about adoption is that you get to decide how it turns out. Every little thing you want, we can help you succeed. All your preferences and terms will help you make it a smooth process as possible.
Creating a Colorado Adoption Plan with Adoption Types
The first step is creating an adoption plan. When you contact Adoption Choices of Colorado, you will be provided with an adoption specialist who will give you a list of several available adoptive family profiles. There are three types of adoption types you can choose from. As a birth mother, you make all the decisions by choosing the adoption type. The adoptive family you choose must also agree to follow your adoption type.
- Open Adoption: this is when you want to start a relationship with the adoptive family you chose and the child. You want to have open communication. Communication can be whatever you want in terms of in-person visits, phone, and video calls, emailing, letters, and or a combination of all these things. You decide on how communication is established.
- Closed Adoption: this is when you decide you want any form of contact with your child or adoptive family. The only thing to keep in mind is that potentially the adoptive family or child in the future may request medical information from you. If this is the adoption type you choose, we will help you find a family that meets your needs and accepts this type.
- Semi-Open Adoption: like open adoption, communication is something you decide. You may not want a personal relationship with your child or adoptive family. However, you want some consistent updates on your child’s upbringing and progress. Communication can be dealt with through our adoption agencies in Colorado in the form of pictures, letters, and phone/video calls mediated by the adoption specialist.

What is a Colorado Birth Plan?
Another important decision you will make is discussing your birth plan with the adoption specialist. Your birth plan decides on who gets to be there or if you don’t want anyone there at all. You also decide the kind of birth you want and if you require pain medicine.
