23 May Closed or Open Adoption in Colorado?
One of the most common questions that expectant mothers considering adoption wonder is whether they should choose closed or open adoption in Colorado? Thankfully, Colorado Christian Services is here to help you sort through the details, so that you can make the best choice for you and your child’s future. The more informed you are about adoption, the more confident you will feel in your specific, personalized adoption plan.
Closed or Open Adoption?
While there are many aspects to consider when deciding between closed or open adoption in Colorado, one of the most basic is how much interaction and communication you’d like to have after placement. Each adoption is unique, and you get to choose a plan that works best for all involved.
- Open adoption in Colorado allows you the most interaction. You will have ongoing visits with the child and will be able to build relationships with both the child and the adoptive family. Learn more here.
- Semi-open adoption provides information with less direct interaction. This type of agreement allows you to stay informed about the child’s life through pictures, letters, and phone calls.
- Closed adoption is another option. This type of agreement means you will not have any direct contact after the child is placed with an adoptive family.
