After contacting us initially, one of our counselors will meet with you in person or speak with you by phone/text/email to learn what is going on with you and your situation and to talk to you about all of your options. There are different types of adoptions that you might choose such as an Open adoption, a Semi-Open Adoption, or a Confidential/Closed Adoption. The type of adoption you choose will determine the amount of information and communication you have with the adoptive family and baby after the adoption. Be sure to learn more about these adoption options by checking out our last blog post. However, you have the option to change your mind regarding what kind of adoption you would like—at any point in the future. This decision is yours to make.
