Are there degrees of openness for open adoptions?
Many degrees of openness may characterize open adoption agreements, the extent of which heavily depends on the wishes of both the adoptive and birth parents. The adoptive parents may send the birth parents updates, pictures, or letters concerning the child without having physical interaction with the child on the one hand, or the birth parents may regularly visit the child to attend important events, such as birthdays or recitals, on the other, or any situation between these extremes. A benefit of open adoptions is their flexibility, especially in cases where both the birth and adoptive parents want to tailor an agreement to their specific needs and comfort levels.
