Adoption is one of your options, but don’t discount it too quickly. Although adoption is a deeply personal decision, only by exploring this choice more will you understand if it’s right for you. Surprising to many, adoption isn’t what it once was. There are now several different types that can fit your life and preferences, and you get to decide.

What Are Different Types? 

There is a variety of options under the adoption umbrella. Some of these include:

  • Open Adoption: allows you to keep open communication between you, the adoptive family, and the child. You will be welcome to participate in milestones, birthdays, and important events. You will be an important part of the child’s life and family. 
  • Semi-Open Adoption: allows you space but welcomes you to know the family and child. All communication will go through an adoption professional who will help regulate the amount of contact you’d like to participate in. 
  • Closed Adoption: allows women to stay anonymous, all identifying records will be legally sealed, and you will not be contacted or identified.

Is Adoption Right for Me? 

Many women feel called to adoption for different reasons. Some may want to accomplish goals and still know their child. Others might want to provide a hopeful couple with the opportunity to complete their family. 

Here are some women who have directly experienced adoption and shared their stories with American Adoptions.

“I could not have asked for a better experience, and I wish I could personally thank everyone involved — not just those involved in my adoption, but all adoptions. What a wonderful gift for everyone! No one loses in adoption as far as I can tell.” -Nicole

“Ten years later, and I am now going to school to begin my career as a Medical Practice Manager, and I honestly don’t think I would be in this place if it wasn’t for the support I received from American Adoptions,” she said. “Finding them has changed my life, and the life of that 5 lb. 6 oz. little girl I delivered that day.” -Brittnee 

A child of adotption shares: 

“The love we share can be no greater than that experienced by biological children and their parents. After adopting, every adoptive family comes to learn this fact. Those who have the luxury of seeing my parents and I interact can see the bond between us.”
