Openness in international adoptions is just as critical for emotional and psychological health as it is for domestic adoptions.
What does an international open adoption look like? Certainly openness in adoption is different when an adoptive family is faced with barriers of language, culture and distance. I’ve spoken with adoptive parents who express relief when their international adoption is complete. The assumption is that given the physical and cultural distance that there is no expectation for openness with birth family or home country.
