About Open Adoption

Spence-Chapin encourages open adoption. This means you will be able to maintain a relationship with your child and the adoptive family. The type and amount of contact is up to you and the family you choose. Open adoption can include the exchange of letters and photographs, emails, phone calls, and visits. An open adoption allows you to develop a relationship with your child although you have given legal and parenting rights to the adoptive parents. Your child will know first-hand that you chose adoption because you love and care deeply about them.


Birth mothers talk about their decisions to make an adoption plan and why open adoption was the right choice for them.
