A Caring Connection of Catholic Charities-Diocese of Lexington provides domestic, infant adoption services. There are varying levels of adoption that determine if or what level of contact will be maintained between the placing parents and the adoptive family.
In an Open Adoption, the adoptive family is selected from albums containing pictures, letters and information about your lifestyle. The placing parent and prospective adoptive couple/family meet and decide the level of contact they feel would be best. You have the opportunity to get to know one another and maintain contact throughout the child’s life through visits, call, emails, letters and pictures.
In a Semi-Open Adoption, the adoptive family and birth parents may or may not meet. Letters, pictures, gifts, etc. may be exchanged through the agency. Identifying information may or may not be exchanged.
