Dear Abortion Advice from Considering Adoption

Dear Abortion Advice:

I was thinking about adoption and I am wondering what it means to have an open adoption.  Would I be able to see my baby?

From Considering Adoption

Dear Considering Adoption:

Good question.  I copied this definition of open adoption from the website listed below.

What exactly is an “open” adoption? Open adoption means that there is some level of direct communication between the birth family and the child and his/her adoptive family. In other words, instead of sending communication through a third party (attorney, social worker, agency), you text, call, email, correspond, etc. directly with one another. The frequency and type of contact is determined by your and the birth parents’ comfort level.
