Once you have decided to move forward, an adoption agency in Missouri will help you create your adoption plan.
Your adoption plan outlines your personal wants and needs for the entire adoption process. This includes searching for an adoptive family, choosing the type of adoption you want, and moving forward after the adoption.
As part of your adoption plan, you will be able to choose the type of adoption that is best for you. There are three types: open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption.
The type of adoption is based on the level of communication you have with the family and your baby before and after birth. You have the option of choosing the adoptive family, communicating with them before the birth, meeting them before the birth, and meeting your baby with every type. This is 100% your choice, you are in control and can decide what you are most comfortable with. Carefully consider all the differences before making a decision.
Open adoption is the most common form of adoption in the United States. In an open adoption, identifying information including names, phone numbers, and email addresses are shared. There are varying degrees of openness after the adoption is finalized, including the exchange of emails, letters, pictures, phone calls, and in-person visits.
Semi-open adoption involves only the exchange of photos, emails, and phone calls, and not in-person visits. There is not usually any direct communication between the children and birthparents.
In a closed adoption, no identifying information is shared between birthparents and adoptive families. It is completely anonymous and there is no ongoing contact after the adoption is finalized.
A fulfilling part of the adoption process is choosing the adoptive family for your baby. Our families hoping to adopt have been pre-screened, are licensed to adopt a baby in the United States, and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home for your baby.
