If my child is being adopted, can I ever talk or see them again?

It is up to the adoptive family and the court.  If they believe that it is in the best interest of the child to remain in communication with you, than you can enter into written agreement as long as it is approved by the court.  This agreement can be terminated by any time by the adoptive parents if the relationship alters and is no longer in the best interest of the child.
