Open Adoption a national trend:95% of U.S. infant adoptions have openness

Kinship Center realizes the complexity of today’s adoption…even with the growing trend toward open adoption adoption remains a very serious and grief filled option for birth parents…if an adoption must take place birth parents and adoptive parents should strive to have a healthy open adoption and work with professionals who can educate and support the building of true relationships between birth and adoptive families over a life time…Historically Kinship Center has always promoted open adoption and has pioneered these relationships by educating both adoptive and birth families to the benefits of openness as well as negotiating the challenges that come with openness….It’s gratifying to see this stance being supported in a recent study published by the Evan B Donaldson Adoption Institute…the report shows how dramatically infant adoption has changed over the decades and that adoptions are trending toward openness… click below to link to the study and if you are pregnant and considering open adoption as an option hopefully the study will give you some added peace of mind to know that open adoption is becoming the norm in infant adoptions…
