Open adoption is a general term that refers to contact between birth and adoptive families. Most domestic infant adoptions today encompass some degree of openness. In several states, open adoption relationships are defined and agreed upon in a legally binding contract. In other states, however, the agreement is an informal one between the parties involved, without the legal underpinnings. Ask your agency or adoption resource which laws will apply to you.

In the car...in the kitchen...at bedtime...it can happen when you least expect it - your child asks you a question about adoption and you don’t know how to answer it. As much as you prepared for this, when it actually happens it can be very difficult.
Maybe you haven’t talked about adoption yet, the answer is tough to hear or you just don’t have enough information to answer your child’s questions. But your answer matters. Talking matters.
