Adoption

questions & answers

Question: I lost my parental rights to my kids. I have since been clean for 13 months. I want to get in touch with the adopted parents. I want to be in my kids life. I dont know where to start though.

Answer: There are different types of adoption in Arizona open, semi-open and closed. Closed adoption means that there is no contact between the birth parents and the adoptive parents. Semi-open adoption means that some information is given and pictures and meetings may happen but addresses are not shared. Open adoption means that birth parents and adoptive parents are in direct contact. Depending on the type of the adoption you may be able to still have some contact with your children. You may want to contact your agency to see what kind of contact you are now able to have with your children.
