A closed adoption is where, after the child is adopted, there is no further contact withe the birth-family, except maybe annual letters.

I am an adopted child and I highly recommend closed adoptions, because once they're open- they stay open. Guaranteed.

Open Adoptions and Closed AdoptionsIf you decide to put your baby up for adoption, you could have an open or closed adoption. An open adoption is when you get to choose the parents who will be raising your baby. One benefit of this is that you can form a relationship with your baby's new parents and possibly even keep in contact as your baby grows.A closed adoption is when everything is kept private. There are also different ways to go about the adoption. You could choose to use an agency. This is usually used in closed adoptions and means that they will be the ones responsible for all the legal matters and finding the new parents.If you want to have an open adoption, then you can either use an agency or go through independent means. An independent adoption is when you go through a doctor, lawyer or someone else that knows a couple that wants to adopt. If you decide to do an independent adoption, you should consider getting a lawyer to make sure you're protected. However, using an agency may be easier and many agencies nowadays encourage parents to do an open adoption.Helpful ResourcesIn the United States:Planned Parenthood: 1-800-230-PLAN or to find the nearest clinicNational Adoption Information Clearinghouse: 1-888-251-0075Independent Adoption Center: 1-800-877-6736NARAL Pro-Choice America: for detailed information about state laws regarding abortionChildren's Aid Society: or call (212)949-4800 for more information about adoption and foster care options

Adoption Agencies?

Adoption agencies can be a pregnant womans best friend in her time of uncertainty. Adoption agencies can provide shelter, counseling and moral support for the duration of the pregnancy as well as long after the adoption proceedings. Adoption is a hard choice to make when you don’t have the support that you need. Adoption agencies have portfolios of couples that are longing to adopt as well as portfolios of the birthmothers that are in search of families to raise their children. Adoption agencies will assess the birthmother to find out what her wishes are in a family as far as things like religion, beliefs, financial status, careers and many more. They will also perform extensive background checks on the prospective families to ensure that there are no felonies. The adoption process can be tedious and emotional. That is where the counseling comes in for both the prospective parents and the birthmother. There are several choices that the adoption agency will provide for the adoption options. There is the open adoption; an adoption where both parties agree to have contact whether it is via mail, phone or in person. This type of adoption is typically agreed upon by both sides as to how much or how little contact is given. The second option is the semi-open adoption. This adoption is contact through via mail only. This contact is only one to two times per year and once again it is up to both parties discretion. The third option is the closed adoption. This option is completely closed and all records are permanently sealed. The child has no way to contact the birthmother and the birthmother has no knowledge of who has her child or where the child is located. There is a lot to think about when considering adoption. Adoption agencies can help in every aspect of the adoption process. This is a forever, life changing experience and with the help of adoption agencies, it can be made easier to cope with.
