Choosing The Type Of Adoption You Want

You have several options for adding a child to your family. Adoption possibilities include:

  • Private agency/independent, where birth parents relinquish their parental rights and transfer custody of the child to the adoption agency for placement. Adoptions might be open, where the adoptive parents know the identity of the biological parents, or closed, where neither set of parents is aware of the other’s identity.
  • Stepparent, when one biological parent remarries, and the new spouse wishes to become a legal parent to the child of the biological parent.
  • Relative, when a blood relative of the biological parent requests to adopt the biological child of a parent who dies or becomes unable to care for the child.
  • Public agency or foster care, where a child may be adopted after the birth parents’ rights have been terminated.
  • International, where children from abroad may be adopted, according to the laws and provisions of the country in which the child lives.
