Everything You Need To Know About Open Adoption In Florida
For many decades, most infant adoptions in the US was closed. There was little to no identifying information shared between (this should be among) birth parents, adoptive parents, and their adopted child. In today’s world, adoption doesn’t have to mean the end of a birth mother’s relationship with her child. These days open adoption is the most popular option and considered the healthiest of all post-adoption relationships.

Open Adoption In Florida:
With open adoption, it’s important to know that placement day doesn’t have to be the last time you see your baby. If you choose open adoption in Florida, everyone involved would be well-acquainted with one another; names are exchanged, as well as phone numbers and other personal information. The birth mother and adoptive parents will be able to communicate through emails, social media sites, or platforms like AdoptSwap until the child turns 18 years old. There would be a free-flowing line of communication after the child’s birth, which may evolve organically over time. However, each post-adoption relationship is unique and depends upon the comfort level of both birth parents and adoptive parents.
