Private Placement Adoption: What You Need to Know
Private placement adoption, also known as independent or direct placement adoption, is a process where birth parents and adoptive parents directly connect with one another without the involvement of an adoption agency. This type of adoption allows more flexibility and control for both parties involved.
There are various reasons why birth parents choose private placement adoption. Some birth parents prefer to have a say in the selection of adoptive parents and desire a more personal connection. On the other hand, adoptive parents often prefer private placement adoption for the opportunity to establish a direct relationship with the birth parents.
