For a birth mother, choosing adoption means allowing another family to love and parent her baby. But it doesn’t meant that she won’t still play an important role in her child’s life.
In fact, with today’s standard of openness in adoption, an adoptive placement can actually mean the beginning of a special, lifelong relationship between birth parents, their children, and adoptive families. With American Adoptions, prospective birth parents can get to know waiting families before placement and watch their children grow up in whatever way they feel comfortable — through mediated pictures and letters, phone calls, emails, or even in-person visits.
In these articles, learn how American Adoptions is committed to helping you develop and maintain a meaningful relationship with your child and his or her adoptive parents, before and long after the adoption process is complete.
