Are you considering adoption as you face an unplanned pregnancy? Adoption could be a great fit for you right now due to life’s circumstances that may be difficult for a child.

Here is some information about placing your child for adoption and what types of adoption plans you can choose from.

Types Of Adoption

Adoption has greatly changed over the years. The expectant mother or birth mother has control over who will raise her child and what type of relationship she would like with them as they grow.

Here are the three types of adoption plans to choose from. There are multiple options, giving you the chance to decide what kind of relationship you want with your child, if any.

Open Adoption Plan

The most common type of adoption today is open. With open adoption, you have open communication with the adoptive family and exchange names, addresses, and phone numbers. Both parties work together to set up communication with one another and your child. It’s up to both parties to build the type of relationship they would like.

Closed Adoption Plan

Sometimes, remaining anonymous is best for the birth mom and child. With a closed adoption, the courts seal the child’s original birth certificate and identifying information after everything is finalized with the adoption. If you are worried about your child’s safety, this may be your best option.

Semi-Open Adoption Plan

Thirdly, there is semi-open adoption. With this plan, you have a mix of open and closed adoption. Communication is made between the birth mother and the adoptive family, but only through the adoption agency or specialist. This is also known as a mediated adoption.

What Does It Cost Me?

Making an adoption plan is free for birth parents. In Idaho, all medical, legal, and counseling expenses are paid for. In addition, it’s possible to receive payment for other pregnancy-related expenses.
