Adoption Models

Closed Adoption: Birth parents select an adoptive family from de-identified profiles of families provided by the agency.  However, all aspects of the adoption are kept confidential and any correspondence must be done through the agency.

Open Adoption
Birth parents select an adoptive family either through the agency or through mutual contacts. Birth parents may receive varying degrees of identifying information by agreement with the adoptive family. Home studies are kept confidential. Copies of the adoptive parents' profile are given to the birth parents when a selection is made.
