Yes. You can decide what features you’re looking for in the adoptive parents, and we’ll provide information about families with similar qualities. If everyone agrees, you can speak with the adoptive parents by phone or meet them in person before making a final decision. You may also have free, open and unstructured communication with the adoptive parents both during your pregnancy and following placement—again, if everyone agrees.
If you choose a “semi-open” adoption, you’ll be able to select, meet and exchange non-identifying information with adoptive parents before birth, but contact between you and the adoptive family will be limited after the child is placed.
