Information on Open Adoption
Open adoption also known as Post Adoption Contact, represents the joining of two families based on love and trust. With an open adoption birth families and adoptive families maintain significant ongoing contact after a placement. In some cases this takes the form of sharing non-identifying information and sometimes it means the full exchange of identifying information between birth and adoptive families, if all parties are comfortable.
Though it is not mandatory, it is desirable for birth parents to continue with the agency to receive supportive services after placement. The post placement period is a very difficult time filled with grief, loss, confusion and questions. Adoption S.T.A.R. is here to help you work through these issues.
