      • Closed Adoption: when the biological parent has no right of contact with and does not share in information about the child after adoption.
    • Kinship Adoption: when a family member such as a grandparent, sibling, godparent or close friend adopts child.
    • Stepparent Adoption: when a spouse adopts their stepchild.
