“A close friend from high school told me about Adoptions First. She had gone through the adoption experience and said so many wonderful things, she shared her story with me and so I contacted Adoptions First. They were so open and friendly. She made everything simple to understand and truly deeply cares. She was there for me whenever. She listened to everything. No one ever made me feel ashamed of my decision. They made me feel good about it and supported everything that I wanted through the process.”
-Birth mother, Katie

Open adoptions are created through a mutual selection process where you have an opportunity to choose the adoptive parents for your child. As you prepare for the birth, you and the adopting parents spend time getting to know each other and create a plan for future contact. After the placement, you have a direct relationship with the adoptive family if that is your wish.
Closed adoption is when you, the birth mother, choose the adopting family or ask Adoptions First to select the adopting family for your baby. You can also decide to have little or no contact with the adopting family. As open adoptions have shown to have better outcomes for children, closed adoption is now a less common practice. However, we will honor whatever plan feels right for you.
