After Placing My Baby for Adoption, will I be Able to Meet My Child?

Open and Semi-Open Adoption
Most adoptions today are either open or semi-open adoptions. If you want to place your child up for adoption, it’s essential to know that placement day is not the last day you see your baby. The adoptive parents and birth parents can share their contact details through AdoptSwap.
They can exchange photographs and other information with the help of AdoptSwap to connect with each other without risking their privacy. The birth mother may also send letters and pictures and exchange emails with the adoptive family so that her child can get to know her too.
In open adoptions, usually, the birth family and adoptive parents share names, phone numbers, and further personal details can be exchanged. They often get to know each other before the adoption process takes place. They generally stay in touch even after the adoption papers are signed. However, each post-adoption relationship is different from the others.
Closed adoption is an arrangement in which very little information is shared between the adoptive family and the birth family. Pictures and letters are not shared after the adoption either.
