Adoption has evolved in exciting ways, and expectant mothers have more choices than ever before. 

Semi-open

You will receive periodic updates about your child through letters and photos from the adoptive parents. Most expectant mothers with Gladney choose semi-open adoption, which can offer them assurance that a child is thriving in the adoptive family.

Open

You will discuss with the adoptive parents your dreams for your future relationship with your child. Together, you will decide on a plan for periodic visits and communication, whether through letters, photos, calls, or e-mails.

Closed

 A closed adoption means that you have chosen not to stay in contact with the adoptive family after placement.
