Adoption Is An Act Of Love

Jul 9, 2012 - For every newborn released for adoption, there are 30-40 couples waiting. If, in fact, there are 36 couples lined up for every adoption, there are 4-5 million couples waiting for babies.

Love does not seek to control. Love opens its arms and embraces. Love finds a way. By treating our children as a commodity to be bought and sold when, where and however we wish, we have closed our hearts to the spontaneity of love. And in so doing we have locked ourselves inside the narrow boxes of our own petty egos and desires.

Let Every Baby Live and Love

Types of Adoptions

Adoption is a lifelong process. Whether you choose an open or closed adoption, it is normal to have an intense range of emotions. Open adoption is an adoption in which there is contact and exchange of identifying information between birth and adoptive families. Closed adoption is an adoption in which all identifying information about the birth parents are sealed in agency and court records. Finding a support group or connecting with other birth parents can be helpful.

Open Adoption

You choose your adoptive couple if you want to. You can spend time with them to get to know them. Many Birthparents meet for dinner, go to doctor visits together, talk on the telephone and/or write to each other. You can be the one to hand the baby to them at the hospital. Or, you can make your choice without meeting them. Open adoption allows you to decide how open or private you want your relationship to be with the family you choose.
