How much contact can I have with my baby after the adoption?

How much contact you have with your baby after the adoption will depend on what was agreed upon before the adoption. In a Closed Adoption, you will not have any contact with the child unless you reunite later via the Reunion Registry. In an Open Adoption, you may agree on the level of contact you and the Adoptive Parents are comfortable with before the Adoption. Included in your agreement, you can require Adoptive Parents to send letters and photographs of all significant life events. In addition, you may be able to send and receive gifts and, in some cases, have personal visits. Seeing photographs and having updates may be all the reassurance you need that your child is happy and healthy.
