Closed Adoption: Closed adoption is not choosing the family to adopt your baby. The agency would choose the family based on the information you shared with your caseworker. You do not have any direct contact before or after delivery of the baby. The agency can share updates and photos with you when you are ready.
Open Adoption: Open adoption means you choose a family for your baby and you have direct contact with the family throughout the pregnancy and beyond. Open adoption provides the opportunity to choose what level of contact you wish to have with the adoptive family and your child. This may change over time, and that is perfectly ok! We will work with you to help you figure out what level of openness is most comfortable for you.
