While in the hospital you can have as much or as little contact as you desire. When planning for your child’s adoption, you can choose an open adoption which allows you to have ongoing visits with your child, or you can choose a less open adoption that keeps you informed about your child’s life through pictures and letters. Or you can choose a closed adoption with no direct contact after your child is placed. 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.
