You can choose which type of adoption is best for you and your baby. With an open adoption, identifying information is shared, including names, phone numbers, and email addresses. A semi-open adoption is like an open adoption, but limited to only the exchange of photos, emails, text messages, and sometimes phone calls. In a closed adoption, no identifying information is shared between birthparents and adoptive families. Learn More »
One of the most rewarding parts of giving your baby up for adoption is choosing the adoptive family who will raise your child.

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, there are many reasons to consider giving your baby up for adoption. You may be unable to financially support a baby. You may not feel emotionally ready to care for a baby. You might not have support from your family. You might have an unstable relationship, or no relationship at all, with the baby’s biological father. No adoption is the same and no reason for choosing adoption is better than another. Learn more »
