As a birth mother, choosing adoption means allowing another family to love and parent your baby. But it doesn’t mean that you won’t still play an important role in your child’s life.
In fact, with today’s standard of openness in adoption, an adoptive placement can mean the beginning of a special, lifelong relationship between you, your child and the adoptive family. With American Adoptions, prospective birth parents can get to know hopeful families before placement. Then, even after the adoption, birth parents can watch their children grow up and stay connected in whatever way they feel comfortable — through mediated pictures and letters, phone calls, emails, or even in-person visits.
In these articles, learn how American Adoptions is committed to helping you develop and maintain a meaningful relationship with your child and his or her adoptive parents, before and long after the adoption process is complete.
