Openness in adoption is both a philosophical concept and a description of relationships. Regardless of the age of the adoptee or the circumstances of the adoption, the goal of openness is to minimize loss and to maintain connections. This article presents a model for expanding the principles learned from openness in infant adoptions to the field of special needs adoptions.
