Hello hadenough

Thanks for your post. My name is Suzie and I am an adviser at Family Rights Group.

Open adoption means that, although a child is adopted, there continues to be some level of contact between them and their birth family. This could be direct contact or the exchange of letters and photographs.

We have an advice sheet with more details about this which you can read here: open adoption advice sheet

I hope this helps

Best Wishes

Suzie
FRG Adviser
