CAN I HAVE CONTACT WITH THE FAMILY AFTER THE BIRTH?
OR, CAN I CHOOSE NOT TO STAY IN TOUCH?

Many birth parents receive pictures and letters from the adoptive parents on an ongoing basis. Others have telephone contact and a few actually visit one another. It's important that you choose parents whose feelings about ongoing contact are similar to yours. You can have as much or as little contact as you like, depending on the agreement that's made between yourself and the adopting parents. The choices are yours.
