Open Adoption is very important to the heart and mission of Special Delivery and we believe it is important to every party in the adoption triad.
Having an open adoption means having any sort of relationship between birth parents, adoptive parents and the adoptee. Each adoption looks different and has different levels of communication.
We always encourage that both parties be open to sending letters and pictures. Even if a birth parent is not ready or wanting that kind of contact, we still ask that families send the pictures and letters so if they were to ever change their mind we can have something to give them.
Some families will build a strong connection and have Facetime calls or even in-person visits.
Communication styles may change over the years, but Special Delivery is committed to being the middle man for all communication. We want our families to build relationships that are healthy and strong relationships that will be beneficial for the child.
