Learning About Nanny Shares

Hello, my name is Jenna. Welcome to my site. When I had to go back to work, I shared my uncertainties with my friends and family. Since I had my child at the same time as my cousins and friends had their own babies, I knew I was in good company. We were all facing the same dilemma at the same time, so we decided to tackle the problem together by setting up a nanny share. We organized the child care so our kids could grow up together and enjoy the same caregiver while we were at work. My site will explore the benefits of utilizing a nanny share in great detail.

The Benefits Of An Open Adoption

Randall Walters

If you're thinking about giving up your child for adoption you may be wondering what type of adoption is right for you. There are two types of adoption, there is closed adoption and there is also open adoption. Closed adoptions were traditional a few decades ago but now open adoptions are much more prevalent and they are proving beneficial for everyone involved. If you're thinking about open adoption but are wondering whether it is right for you. Take a look at all the advantages that it has to offer.

Reduce Uncertainty

One of the things you are likely to face when you decide to give your baby up for adoption is a lot of anxiety and uncertainty. Having an open adoption can help to alleviate this type of stress. You will be able to meet the adoptive family beforehand and decide whether or not you wish to give your child to them. This can help to reduce your fears about adoption.

Lessen Grief

No matter how prepared you think you are to give your baby up for adoption you will feel some grief when the moment happens. Open adoption helps reduce these feelings because you will be able to see your child's development. There are two main types of open adoptions. There is a fully open adoption and semi-open adoption. In a fully open adoption, you can communicate with the birth family and you can know what is happening with your child directly. This does not mean that you will have a role in parenting. Parenting will be up to the adoptive parents exclusively. 

In a semi-open adoption, you will have a mediator between yourself and the adoptive parents. You will be able to receive updates and even pictures of your child but you will not speak directly to the birth parents, you will speak to a professional who has been assigned as your mediator. 

Improves Child's Self Esteem

One of the things that children in closed adoption struggle with is understanding their identity. There will come a time when they will want to know more about themselves and the family that they came from. An open adoption lets children know their family history and even their family tree. This makes it easier for them to develop a strong sense of identity and reduce confusion.

Now that you know the benefits of open adoption you may just decide that it is the right choice for you. Just be sure you talk to the person helping you with your adoption and thoroughly explain the type of adoption that you would prefer.
