Identified Adoption Law and Legal Definition

In Identified Adoptions, the birth mother has selected the family that she wishes to adopt her child. This may have been accomplished by the birth mother reviewing information about only a few couples, or many couples. The birth mother may or may not actually meet the adoptive parents that she identifies as the parents to adopt her child. The father's parental rights are usually ignored completely. The "family" that wants to adopt are generally complete strangers who are unrelated to her baby.
