Open or Closed

This post is simple.  When considering an adoption, do you lean more towards open or closed adoptions?  Why?

Feel free to share from your own adoption journey.



  1. I lean more towards open adoptions. An “open adoption” can mean a number of things but generally I think being open to maintaining some contact or exchange of information can be helpful for a child when they are beginning to ask questions and figure out their identity and history. I have only experienced adoptions as someone in the adoption field looking in, never has a part of the adoption “triangle” (birth parent, child, adoptive parent).
