Possible benefits of open adoption for your child
Here are a few ways that your child can benefit from open adoption:
- As your child grows, he or she will understand that your decision to choose adoption grew out of your desire to give them the best life possible.
- Most adopted children want to know: What does my birthmother look like? Why did she choose adoption? Open adoption allows you to share this information with your child.
- Depending on how much contact you and the adoptive family agree on, your child will have the opportunity to know you throughout his or her life.
- Your child will never need to wonder about their biological family, including knowing important information about their ancestry and health.
- Your child will know about your life, as well. You may share important milestones in your life, such as when you go to college or graduate from a program. You may share a new address and updated photos of yourself.
- Your child will have a sense of security, knowing it was you who chose this life for them.
