Adoption is of several types. You may choose to go for a closed adoption, whereby neither party would know any details about the other. This does have both advantages and disadvantages for the birth parents and the adoptive parents, and is quite common especially among parents who wish to move on with their lives and not interfere with the life of the child once he/she has been given up for adoption. The opposite of this form of adoption is ‘open adoption’. Here, both parties have a chance of meeting each other and discussing important matters with each other. Moreover the birth parents will still be a part of the child’s life even after he/she has been given up for adoption. There will typically be an agreement of co-parenting. While most of these adoptions taken place within the country (also known as domestic adoption) there are others who wish to adopt from other foreign countries. This could be for several reasons and is most commonly done to provide a better life to children from developing countries.

On one side, you have the adoptive family who is preparing for a new child in their home, and on the other side you have parents who have to give up their child for some reason or another but find it a painful process. In order to gain some support, it is best that you do some research on your own, if you are looking to adopt. This could be by reading adoptions books. This is one of the best ways of gaining information and preparing yourself for what is to come. Adoption books can be found in various bookstores through out the country and can also be purchased as e-books online. You would be able to find adoption books that cater either specifically to the birth parents or to adoptive parents or sometimes even to both. The adoption books that cater to both will typically contain information on how to bring up the child together, that is by co-parenting.
Several adoption books have also been authored on how to get through the adoption process. These adoption books will take you step-by-step on how to find an adoption agency, how to apply for adoption and so on. Always remember to get yourself a range of adoption books on different topics to help you deal with different situations.
