There needs to be something done about adoptive parents breaking an open adoption agreement.

The only way it should be able to get changed is by all parties agreeing to it or court order. If the adoptive parents break the agreement they should be held in contempt of court and face penalties.

    Unfortunately, that's not the way the laws work. The adopting couple can close it at any time. Not saying I agree with it, but the laws don't work the way you think they do. Yes, I think they should be enforced to stick to the original agreement though.

    I dont know about penalities. But i do agree that they should write an agreement up and take it to court. I think a lot more people would be open to going through with adoption if this was how it was.

     I know the law works that way but something should be done about it.

    I agree.  Adoptive parents are not babysitters.

    Absolutely they can. An open adoption agreement does not hold up in court.

    As the laws are now, once bio parents sign over their rights, that's it, and the adoptive parents can change the terms.

    In some ways I would like to see the laws changed, but at the same time, speaking from personal experience, some bio parents can be toxic and SHOULD have all contact cut off.
