Open Adoption Can Get Complicated
When it is possible, open adoptions are preferred over closed adoptions. Having an open adoption means that you’re in contact with your child’s biological family in some capacity. This transparency is the healthiest thing for a child caught between worlds, but it can be tricky to navigate for the adults involved.

Emotions run high for adoptive and bio parents, for obvious reasons. Feelings get hurt, expectations aren’t met, and suddenly you’re in a minefield without a map. This is one of the most important relationships you will ever have, though, and preserving it is going to mean the world for your child.
