Why do people adopt children?
There are many reasons why people choose to adopt. Some people are not able to have children and want to start a family of their own. Other adoptive parents were previously foster parents to children in the foster care system and want to provide those children with permanency and a stable home. Still other adoptive parents are relatives or fictive kin of the biological parents and are raising someone else's children already. In order to make their relationship permanent and legal, adoption is the only way. Regardless of the reason for adoption, it is best to have a knowledgeable and experienced Adoption Attorney on your side throughout the entire adoption process to ensure your rights and your family's future are protected.
Can the biological parents still have contact with the child after the adoption?
The answer to this questions largely depends upon the type of adoption the adoptive parents and the biological parent want. In cases where the parents all agree to an open adoption, many times the biological parents still have some type of contact with the child. This can be through regular, in person visitation or by way of cards and letters. Closed adoptions keep the identity of the parents sealed and there is no contact between the child and the biological parents once the adoption process is complete.
If the adoption is through a State agency, such as CPS, it will be up to the agency as well as the adoptive parents to determine whether an open adoption is in the children's best interests. For example, in cases of sexual assault or severe bodily injury to a child, there is a good chance that the State will discourage the adoptive parents from allowing contact between the child and the biological parent.
