What is Open Adoption?

Adoptees Want To Know Their Stories

Kevin Hofmann (pictured) is an adoptee who grew up when open adoption was not an option. He didn't have access to his medical information.  He didn't know anything about his birth family.  And he wishes his family would have had more support from the adoption agency that facilitated his adoption. 

Today, open adoption can take on many different forms—pictures and letters, exchanging information, face to face meetings, or receiving updates through the agency.  Biological parents (birth parents) and adoptive parents can work together with the support of SOFA to decide what level of contact works for everyone. 

Spirit of Faith Adoptions' mission is to offer support of families always, by providing adoption education and support before, during and after adoption. 

Many adoptees like Kevin want to know their stories. Openness in adoption provides information for adoptees and their families. Understanding the lifelong journey from the adoptee's point of view is important to everyone involved with SOFA.
