openness agreement

An openness agreement is an agreement made between a child’s adoptive parents and their birth parent, relative, or other person. It says how they agree to keep in contact in the future.

An openness agreement can be made at any time -- before or after the adoption takes place. The agreement can be formal or informal and can change over time. You don’t have to go to court to make an openness agreement.
