Choose the Right Option for Your Child with Adoptions in Norman

by | Oct 24, 2013 | Adoption

Choosing to take advantage of an adoption service is one of the hardest and most rewarding decisions a person will ever make. It does not matter whether you are doing it because you are dealing with an unexpected pregnancy during a difficult time for you or a parent who has more love to give to a child and want to help a child in need. Perhaps nature has taken away your ability to have a child of your own or perhaps you already have a child and just want to share your love with another. With Adoptions in Norman, you do have options to consider no matter what reason you have for choosing this service.

Some people feel that adoption means never seeing their child or the child’s biological parent at all. For many, this is often something that steers them away from taking advantage of an adoption service. Perhaps the birth mother feels that she cannot handle the baby but she does not want to lose out on seeing her baby grow because she does love it. Perhaps the adoptive parents want to know the birth mother so that they can tell their child about her. Luckily there are several options when choosing your adoption plan. The birth mother and the adoptive parents have the opportunity to decide how much contact will be between everyone involved so you do not have to worry about not knowing about the child.

When you choose Adoptions in Norman, you can choose a closed adoption which is rare because most biological parents and adoptive parents want to know each other, at least limited. Often a birth mother gives up her child for adoption because she loves the child and wants to provide a better place for it. Parents, even the adoptive parents most often choose to maintain contact between each other because everyone wants the best for the child that they all love. A semi-private adoption means that the families will stay in touch through mail and photographs with occasional meetings between the birth and adoptive family. Another option that works well for many is a completely open adoption where there is as much contact between the parents as they want. This frees up the birth mom to know her child and the child to know her. The main benefit here is that the child will still feel wanted by their birth parent.
