Adoption is the process whereby a person or couple assumes the parenting for another and permanently transfers all rights and responsibilities from the biological parent(s) onto themselves.

Types of Adoption

Open: Allows identifying information to be communicated between adoptive and biological parents.

Closed: Also known as confidential or secret, closed adoption conceals all identifying information and prevents disclosure of the adoptive parents’, biological kin’, and adoptees’ identities.

Domestic: Refers to charities and other organizations acting as intermediaries and bringing prospective adoptive parents and children together for the purpose of adoption.

Foster Care: Refers to the adoption of children placed in public care.

International: Involves the placing of a child outside of the child’s country of birth.

Embryo: Based on the donation of embryos and the in vitro fertilization process.

Common Law: Hasn’t been recognized by the courts beforehand, but where a parent leaves his or her child with a friend or relative for an extended period of time.
