Preferences for Adoptive ParentsTYPE OF ADOPTION: Adoption Choices of Oklahoma specializes in open and semi-open adoption. We respect the choice you make in which type of adoption will best fit your needs and the needs of your baby, and can customize the following adoption types to best fit those needs. Please choose the type(s) of adoption you are considering: OPEN ADOPTION: You would select adoptive parents based on profiles provided by us. Initial phone calls and meetings would be facilitated by an agency representative, and you may continue direct contact with one another during the pregnancy and following placement, and may share identifying information with each other. An open adoption may include face to face visits without going through the agency. An openness plan is decided and agreed upon by both you and the adoptive parents. An open adoption allows a child to connect more easily to his or her birth parents and maintain a relationship. The level of openness may change throughout the adoption or after placement as relationships change over time. SEMI-OPEN ADOPTION: You would select adoptive parents based on profiles provided by us. Initial phone calls and meetings between you and the adoptive parents would be facilitated by an agency representative. You and the adoptive parents may continue direct contact with one another during the pregnancy. Some contact may continue following placement, and you would receive pictures and updates after placement. CLOSED ADOPTION: You would either select adoptive parents based on profiles provided by us or give us permission to select adoptive parents for you. Outside of the adoptive parents’ profile, no other information regarding identity of the adoptive parents would be given to you. The adoptive parents would receive your information, unless you indicated no disclosure on your consent to disclose form. There would be no contact between you and the adoptive parents, but there would still be an option for you to receive pictures after placement.Would you consider a single parent?(Required) Yes, but only a female single parent Yes but only a male single parent Yes, either a female or male single parent NoWould you consider a same sex couple?(Required) Yes, but only female same sex couples Yes but only a male same sex couples Yes, either female or male same sex couples NoDo you have an age preference for the adoptive parents?(Required)Would you prefer adoptive parents:(Required) With biological children With adopted children With biological and/or adopted children Without children No preferenceRace preference (please check all that apply):(Required) No preference - open to all races Caucasian/White/European Native American or Alaska Native Middle Eastern Asian Multi-Racial African American Hispanic or LatinoWould you prefer adoptive parents who are:(Required) Bilingual Multi-Lingual No preferenceWould you prefer adoptive parents who live in a:(Required) Big city Suburbs Small town Rural/countryside No preference OtherDefine other:(Required)Do you have a religious preference for the adoptive parents?(Required) Yes NoPlease check any of the following that you DO NOT prefer your child to be raised in:(Required) Christianity Amish Anglican Adventist Baptist Catholic Episcopalian Evangelical Greek Eastern Orthodox Jehovah’s Witness LDS/Mormon Lutheran Mennonite Methodist Pentecostal Presbyterian Protestant Quaker Non-denominational Jewish Conservative Orthodox Islam/Muslim Buddhism Hinduism No Religion Agnostic Atheism Humanism OtherDefine other:(Required)Do you want to have phone contact with your adoptive family before the baby is born?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureDo you want to meet your adoptive family before the baby is born?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureWould you like letters/updates from the adoptive parents following placement?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureWould you like photographs from the adoptive parents following placement?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureWould you like to have visits with the adoptive family and child after placement?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureIf yes, how often?(Required)Would you like to have phone calls with the adoptive family and child after placement?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureIf yes, how often?(Required)Do any of your family members wish to have contact with the child after placement?(Required) Yes No I'm not sureWhich family members and what kind of contact?(Required)Is there anything else you would like in a family?
