The Benefits of Open Adoption Mediation

In open adoption in California birth parents and adopting parents have an opportunity to create a future contact agreement that will define the type of contact that the birth parents will have with their child and the adopting parents, after the child has been placed for adoption. These formal post adoption agreements, sometimes calledKinship Agreements,are formalized in writing and filed when the adoption is finalized.
Some birth parents and adoptive parents create formal written contact agreement worked out before the birth or soon after the baby is born and placed.
