Introduction to Open Adoption

Parents who are exploring adoption may have heard a lot about the concept of ?open adoption,? but what does that mean? This webinar explores the spectrum of open adoption and examines what open adoption looks like in different families. Closed adoption, one-way updates, two-way updates and meetings between birth family and adoptive family will be examined. The webinar includes many examples of adoptive and birth family contact, including letters exchanged between birth and adoptive families. Viewers will have a fuller understanding of what open adoption looks like at different points on the spectrum, and will begin to consider what level of openness may be best for their family.
