Private Adoption in Oklahoma
Private adoption does not mean closed adoption. A private adoption with an adoption agency means as the birth parents of the child, you have options. One of which includes choosing the adoptive family and choosing the level of openness and communication you might have with the adoptive family and your child.
Private adoption is also known as independent adoption or voluntary placement. It means that you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and/or don’t want to parent the child so you are choosing to place the child for adoption.
With a private adoption, birth parents have a variety of options in making an adoption plan including the level of openness in contact, financial assistance, and counseling support.
Open Adoption in Oklahoma
Open adoption does not mean co-parenting. When you choose adoption, you are voluntarily relinquishing all parental rights and responsibilities. Open adoption is common opportunity in modern adoption in which you can choose to have a relationship with the adoptive family and thus, your child once the adoption is finalized.
Open adoption typically involves meeting sometime before or at the birth, and remaining in contact after placement through letters, pictures, other forms of communication and can include visits.
Open adoption is not co-parenting nor sharing parental rights or decisions. Though open adoption describes varying degrees of communication and contact with the determined birth family member(s), this can look different for each family. At the time of a match or after the birth of the child, the birth family and adoptive family typically reach an agreement for their desired level of communication and contact. Open adoption does not mean sharing custody of the child or sharing any parental rights.
Open adoption does not look the same for every family; nor does it always stay the same over time. Every family and their agreement looks unique. The relationship might start out with a lot of contact and fade over time or it might start with little contact and develop over time. The amount of openness can change if circumstances and emotional health requires it – both on the side of the birth parents, the adoptee, and the adoptive family. There are sometimes valid reasons for boundaries and changes of contact for the health of the child.
