Can I be involved in choosing the family for my baby?
Yes! You choose your adoptive couple if you want to. You can spend time with them to get to know them. Many birth parents meet for dinner, go to doctor visits together, talk on the telephone and/or write to each other. You can be the one to hand the baby to them at the hospital. Or, you can make your choice without meeting them. Open adoption allows you to decide how open or private you want your relationship to be with the family you choose.
