In many instances, the baby is handed to the attorney or agency representative and then to the adoptive parents with no ceremony at all. With the increase in open adoptions, however, many birthparents and adoptive parents plan a ceremony that can take place in the hospital (chapel) or church, or at home. The birthparents may invite the birth grandparents, other family members and friends to witness the baby being given to the adoptive parents. This ceremony can offer birthparents a chance to say a special message or read a heartfelt letter tothe baby and its new parents. The adoptive parents can also express their feelings of love and support for the birthparents at this time.
