What’s an independent adoption?

In an independent adoption, the birth parents must personally choose with whom to place their child.[1] The birth parents are entitled to know certain information about the adoptive parents, such as their full names, age, ethnicity, religion, the length of their marriage, the number of times each spouse has been previously married, past criminal convictions, child support obligations, and whether any children were previously removed from their home due to abuse or neglect.[2] In short, an independent adoption allows birth parents to personally select potential adoptive parents and have certain information about adoptive parents provided to them.
