You’ll go over the adoption types that best align with what you want from an adoptive family. Take a look at the different adoption types outlined below to see what you’d be most comfortable with in an adoption plan

  • Open adoption: You’ll be able to choose and meet your birth parents during the adoption process. Depending on the level of contact you both agree with, you’ll have contact with the birth parents and your child after your due date. Post-placement communication typically involves emails, letters, phone calls, and in-person visits.
  • Semi-open adoption: During the adoption process, you’ll communicate with your birth parents through a third party; sometimes, face-to-face meetings occur with your adoption specialist present. After your due date, there typically aren’t any in-person visits with your child.
  • Closed adoption: You will have no choice of your adoptive family and will not have contact with them; Adoption Choices of Missouri will select the adoptive family for your baby. After your delivery date, you’ll have no communication with your child.
