Full Answer

Adoption.org states that when a child is adopted, the original birth certificate is stored away with a state file of the adoption record. A new birth certificate is then issued identifying the adoptive parents. This is the same process even for stepchildren who have been adopted. The adoption certificate serves as a temporary document given to the adoptive parents, which remains in place until the new birth certificate has been received, according to Adoption.org.

    What are the pros and cons of open adoption versus closed adoption?

    A:

    A closed adoption means there is no contact between the birth and adoptive parents before or after the adoption. In open adoptions, the birth and adoptive parents develop a personal relationship and communicate on a consistent basis. Closed adoptions allow adoptive parents the security of privacy from the birth parents. Open adoptions remove the mystery from the process and allow both sets of parents to make more informed decisions.
