How an Adoption Plan Can Prevent Depression Caused by Abortion

Abortion is associated with mental health risks, including depression. If you want to avoid these abortion-induced mental health risks and you don’t feel like parenting is an option, your other pregnancy choice is placing your child for adoption.

What Is an Adoption Plan?

An adoption plan is a document that you and the adoption agency work together to create, and it outlines what you want to happen throughout the adoption process. While adoption is an emotionally complex choice, working through the details of an adoption plan will help you feel more in control of your decision. 

What Are the Different Types of Adoption Plans?

While adoption plans are unique, they fall into three main categories:

  • Open adoption: As the name suggests, this is the most open option. An open adoption is the plan you’d choose if you desire to have open communication between you, the adoptive family, and your child. Open adoptions are currently the most popular. They allow you to build a long-term relationship with your child.
  • Semi-open adoption: This plan is similar to open adoption, but all communication is mediated between a third party, like an adoption agency.
  • Closed adoption: With this type of adoption plan, you won’t know anything about the adoptive family, and they won’t know anything about you.

If you’re considering adoption, you will work closely with an adoption agency to decide what type of adoption plan is best for your adoption desires and goals.
