A review of the change in recent years towards more open adoptions.This proposal argues that, because of the advantages of these open adoptions, social workers, and adoption agencies should encourage both birth and adoptive families to develop lines of communication. Such an arrangement, this paper argues, will benefit both families and, more importantly, the adopted child.
From the Paper:"However, most birth parents now are far from this picture. Most birth mothers are in their 20s and 30s. Most of them are already parents, who are struggling to make ends meet. Many are married immigrants, who are working two jobs to send money for children left behind in their native countries. What they have in common, observes Judith Freedman of the Massachusetts-based Jewish Family and Children's Service, is that most of them do not believe in abortion, and that all of them love their child (Keva). Typical birth parents include Joe Polenzani and his girlfriend, who faced the dilemma of an unplanned pregnancy when they were in college. Both did not believe in abortion, and were leery of the old adoption system which severely terminated the role of birth parents."
