Do I have to agree to ongoing contact?

No. You do not have to agree to ongoing contact, but we suggest you think this through very carefully before deciding. You do not have to commit to a plan until you are Matched. We use your wishes to find an Adoptive Family to match you with, and once matched, you cannot change your mind in fairness to them unless they are willing to consider an open adoption anyway. We will discuss all this with you when we make your Personalized Adoption Plan. You will have plenty of time to think it over before being asked to commit to a plan.
