postplacement services

The range of counseling and services provided to the adoptive parents, adopted child and birthparents subsequent to the child's adoptive placement and before the adoption is legally finalized in court.

Birthparents may need counseling to resolve feelings of loss after they've placed a newborn infant for adoption. Older children usually need counseling after an adoptive placement, no matter how positive the child feels about the adoptive parents. Postplacement services are provided to make the adoption experience as positive and satisfying as possible to all parties.
