I have written before about how much I prefer the idea open adoption over the old adoption model (Who Likes Unanswered Questions, October, 2011). Apparently, I’m not the only one. According to Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, “closed” adoptions have decreased to about 5%, and adoptive parents report positive experiences with more openness in the process.
All of our waiting couples have agreed to participate in an open or semi-open adoption. Hats off to all our waiting families for being open to this exciting concept!
Thanks to the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute for publishing their findings.
