Can You Have a Family After Placing a Baby for Adoption in Oklahoma?
Will I be able to have a family after giving my baby up for adoption? What are the different adoption options — open, closed, and semi-open adoption? How will the different adoption options affect my having a family? These are just a few of the ideas that may be running through your mind. Not to worry, as Adoption Choices of Oklahoma is ready to guide you through the adoption process and also explain to you the different adoption options and what they mean for you. To answer the question: You will absolutely be able to have a family after placing your baby for an Oklahoma adoption. However, it is important that we make sure that you are aware of what each adoption option contains and how these adoption options will affect you going forward. Placing your baby for adoption will not stop the future you envision for yourself. You have the power to dictate your path, and we will help you on the way. Also, according to the contracts, every detail will be overseen by you.
What Does an Open Adoption Look like?
An open adoption would mean that you would be able to have a certain amount of personal information from the adoptive parents and also contact with your child. The terms of any open adoption agreement would be discussed with your adoption caseworker, and they will help you with the legality around any agreement you will make. How does this affect any future family I may have? There is the legality around any adoption choice, and so when discussing the terms of your contract with your adoption caseworker, using your birth parent counselor will be extremely helpful. Contacting your birth parent counselor and discussing your plans and also your needs may help guide your decisions around choosing your adoption type in Oklahoma. Your adoption caseworker will also help you to figure out an adoption plan for your baby with the adoptive parents and your child that suits you and your future needs.
What Does a Closed Adoption Consist of?
A closed adoption is different from an open adoption because no contact or personal information is exchanged between you and the adoptive parents. This may suit your needs more if you want to have a family in the future that is not connected with your child. Whether you choose a closed or an open adoption, none of the options will affect you having a family. The option you choose will depend on your future plans and any concerns you address with your adoption caseworker and birth parent counselor. Your birth parent counselor can help to guide you through the Oklahoma adoption process, as we know that it is a very emotional time. You may choose to have a closed adoption, and our adoption agency will support you during the entire process.
What is a Semi-Open Adoption?
In a semi-open adoption, there will be contact with you, your child, and the adoptive parents. The only difference between a semi-open adoption and an open adoption is that personal information will not be exchanged. A semi-open adoption may benefit you if you want to see your child and the adoptive parents with a restricted exchange of information. Building your own family after placing your baby for adoption in Oklahoma is absolutely possible, and Adoption Choices of Oklahoma has the resources available to make you assured with any decision that you make. Your birth parent counselor and your adoption caseworker will work with you to ensure that you are able to get the future you envision for yourself and your child.
