How much contact will I have with my child and their adoptive family?

The level of contact you have with your child and their adoptive family will depend on what all of you are comfortable with.

That’s one of the advantages to PairTree. You can discuss and reach a mutual agreement over the future of your relationship directly with adopting families who want the relationship to work well for everyone. Asking to receive emails, texts, calls and/or visits are all completely normal requests.

For what it is worth, from the perspective of an adoptive parent, we believe open relationships thrive in honest, flexible and respectful environments – by birth parents and adopting parents. And that the greatest beneficiary of an open and honest relationship between birth parent and adopting parents, is the child.
