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.

Is your child emotionally acting much younger than their age? Have special needs you weren't expecting? Behaviors that resemble ADHD?
You are not alone. These challenges are common for post- institutionalized children. Finding help, however, can be difficult.
