Birth Parents
What is an open adoption?
An open adoption allows some contact between the biological child and the biological parent(s) despite being adopted by a non biological parent(s).

What is a semi open adoption?
A semi open adoption limits the kind of relationship a biological parent(s) has with the biological child. Speak with an attorney at the Law Offices of Zofia Rawner about the pros and cons of a semi open adoption.

What are closed adoptions?
In a closed adoption the biological parent(s) have no contact with the child unless the adoptive parents allow it. Speak with an attorney at the Law Offices of Zofia Rawner to see which option would work best for you.

Can a relative adopt?

Speak with an attorney at the Law Offices of Zofia Rawner to assess whether a relative’s child may be adopted and how.

Can I put my child in foster care?

Speak with an attorney at the Law Offices of Zofia Rawner about the best way to complete the adoption with potential parents.
