“A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”

Psalm 68:5

Why Choose an Open Adoption?

Provides answers to a child’s questions and minimizes feelings of abandonment and loss. An open adoption also eliminates the need for a child to fantasize about who their birth parents are and their reasons for choosing adoption.

How Does Openness Benefit the Child?

Comforts and encourages the birth parent by affirming their decision to place their child for adoption. An open adoption allows birth parents to witness the love and care their child receives throughout their life.

How Does Openness Benefit the Birth Family

Empowers the adoptive family as they raise their child, providing them with knowledge about their child’s history. An open adoption can reduce instances of anxiety and stress associated with the unknown for adoptive parents.

How Does Openness Benefit the Adoptive Family

Openness and honesty in adoption promotes healthier, better-adjusted children and more emotionally secure parents, on both sides.
