What is an identified adoption?

Identified Adoptions

An identified adoption is a type of independent adoption in which the birth parents and the adoptive parents make contact with one another regarding an adoption. They contact an adoption agency or attorney together to proceed in the adoption process. Both the birth parents and the adoptive parents have agreed that this is the adoption situation they desire. Identified adoption may not meet all the needs of a particular family. Families who want more support and educational services may want to choose to adopt through an agency as opposed to independent adoption.
