An Adoption Plan is identified in Florida as an arrangement made by a birth parent or other individual having legal custody of a minor, born or to be born, with an Adoption Entity in furtherance of placing the minor for adoption.
Adoption Planning should be made with the best interest of the child being the paramount consideration. It should be made with consideration of the rights and responsibilities of the parties entering into the Plan. It will result in the termination of rights and responsibilities over a minor child and the assuming of these rights and responsibilities by individuals desiring such an obligation.
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
This means you have choices. You may choose to share information about yourself to adoptive parents, meet with adoptive parents, and they can also choose the same option. As birth parent or adoptive parent you will be able to choose what information you desire to share and you will be advised as to what information you have a right to receive. You will be required, however, to give medical and other information pertinent to the safe completion of the adoption. You can receive information after the birth of your child including pictures and letters about your child. Your privacy will be protected if you choose not to share information other then what is required to ensure a safe adoption.
