Then you can choose to have what is called a “closed adoption”. Your name and contact information will be kept confidential, and not provided to the adopting family. However, we typically encourage expectant mothers to consider a semi-open adoption to keep the option open later if she chooses to pursue contact in the future, although this is solely your decision. We will not persuade you one way or another, however, we will inform you of your options and encourage you to consider all possible future scenarios when determining your adoption plan.
