What does that term mean to us? It means that we can cooperatively make decisions regarding the openness of our adoption. If you want, we would be happy to exchange emails, phone calls, and planned visits at neutral locations. We would also be happy to write letters, exchange photos, and keep you informed about the baby's progress and development. We hope that our child's biological family will correspond with us as well. We feel that our relationship with our child's biological family will be like any other relationship- as time passes, we will get to know each other better so that we will be able to better assess the appropriate level of involvement in each others' lives. We feel that our child can only benefit from being loved by as many people as possible. Of course, we will respect and understand your decision if you would like the adoption to remain closed.
