Open Arms Adoption Network will help you learn about and consider all of your pregnancy options. Open Arms Adoption Network believes that you should have control over the decisions concerning your pregnancy and we will respect your choice, even if it's not adoption. However, if you decide to plan an adoption ("give up your baby for adoption"), an Open Arms counselor will support you, answer all of your questions during the planning process, and assist you in making an adoption plan that works for you. You may choose the adoptive parents (which starts from looking at our Adoptive Family Profiles), spend time with them, and get to know them if you desire.
Basics of Adoption
Some women choose to have a Semi-Open Adoption which allows birthparents (you) and adoptive parents to stay connected with the mediation services of the adoption agency. Others choose Open Adoption, where birth parents and adoptive parents maintain direct contact with one another while the adoption agency supports the developing relationship. If staying in touch seems too emotionally difficult, Confidential Adoption allows the birth parents to fully plan the adoption while offering complete privacy and confidentiality over the years.
Open Arms respects birth parents and recognizes that support is needed especially after the baby joins the adoptive family. Open Arms offers free, lifetime counseling to birth parents and birthparent support groups.
