While in the hospital you can have as much or as little contact as you desire. Moving forward when planning for your child’s adoption, you may choose an open adoption, which allows you to have ongoing visits with your child. You may also choose a less open adoption that keeps you informed about your child’s life through pictures and letters, or if you desire you can choose a closed adoption. It’s up to you.
Open adoption looks different in every situation. Open Adoption is the option of having an ongoing relationship with your child and the family you have chosen.
Colorado Christian Services will come alongside you and support you whether you decide to parent or place your child for adoption. If you decide to parent, we can help you with a parenting plan, budget, and get you started with items you may need for your child, such as diapers, wipes, and clothing.
