Do birth parents and other relatives have any contact with their child after adoption?

Posted on: 20 June 2013

It is common for there to be an exchange of written information, perhaps once or twice a year, via Letterbox contact.

There will be unique arrangements for each individual child which may mean direct contact for some children with various members of their birth family, including grandparents and brothers and sisters who may be placed elsewhere. Sometimes there will also be contact with birth parents – if this is best for the child.
