What is Open Adoption?
Open adoption is a term generally used to describe a variety of arrangements allowing for ongoing contact between members of the 'adoption triad' (adoptive family, birth family, and adopted child). The level of openness in any relationship varies widely. Degrees of open arrangements span from mediated contact, which implies letters and photographs sent through a third party (so that the adoptive family can maintain privacy), to fulll disclosure of the adoptive family's personal information. In fully open adoptions, there is actual physical contact, through meetings and visits between the birth family and the adoptive family. Sometimes an adoption agency may describe an adoption as 'open' when the birth-mother (and/or birth-father) may have a say or may make the actual decision on who is chosen to parent their child, though this is not the generally accepted definition.

PotentialParents.com was founded in the Spring of 2005 after the adoption of our beautiful and amazing daughter. A “waiting family” for over two and a half years, we were involved in networking efforts designed to locate a birth family in every medium you can imagine, be it print ads, agency group advertising projects, the yellow pages, and the Internet. After navigating the various adoption sites on the Internet, it became apparent that there was a need for a site that provided quality networking and web design services for a reasonable price. After all, more and more connections leading to adoption plans are being made via the Internet.
PotentialParents.com strives to be that site. By firsthand experience, we understand that adoption networking can be very expensive. We’d rather you save the money for your future child and all those unexpected expenses than spend it on more advertising. That’s why our prices are significantly lower than other sites.
