Is Adoption Right For Me?
Sometimes it can be challenging to know if adoption is right for you. The good news is there are many options within adoption that you get to choose from, so it can be tailored to what you want. This can help make it easier to decide because there may be an option that resonates with you.
What Are My Options?
Adoption options usually consist of the following:
- Open Adoption: Allows free-flowing communication between you, the child, and their adoptive family.
- Semi-Open Adoption: Allows you to participate in the amount of communication you want, and an adoption professional helps you regulate how much contact you join in.
- Closed Adoption: Protects your privacy and legally seals all identifying records.
What If I’m Unsure?
It’s okay not to be sure if adoption is right for you or if you are in between the options. It’s important you know there is no right way to feel about adoption, and there is no one right answer to the type of adoption plan you choose.
Everyone is different, and their stories and journeys will also be different. Exploring what might be right for you is important to make a decision you can feel comfortable and confident in.
