Types of Adoption

 
Open Adoption – An open adoption allows for some type of connection between birth parents, adoptive parents, and child. This decision is made by both the birth parents and adoptive parents. Play dates and visitation agreements represent the most open adoption plans, while the open exchange of pictures and letters through a third party would represent a minimally-open adoption plan.
 
Partially Open Adoption – An adoption plan that allows the adoptive parents and child to contact the birth parents, however the birth parents are not allowed to initiate contact with the adoptive parents and child.
 
Confidential Adoption (Closed) –  A closed adoption conceals all information of birth parents as well as adoptive parents. There is no form of communication between parties, and once the adoption process has been completed the personal information (except a general medical history) of birth parents and adoptive parents is sealed.
