There are three avenues in which to complete an open adoption in Alberta, namely; step parent adoptions, direct placement adoptions and adoptions through an agency. Direct placement adoptions include situations in which the couple wishing to adopt has made arrangements to do so with an expectant mother.
Pursuant to Alberta’s Adult Adoption Act, children of step or foster parents and adult adoptees who have been reconnected with their birth families are able to complete “adult adoptions.”
Although not legally required, adult adoptions are often of great importance and hold tremendous sentimental value to those involved.
