Pregnancy is hard on birth mothers physically and emotionally. This can be made even worse if it is an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. Experiencing the hardship of pregnancy can make you question a lot. Adoption Choices of Nevada is a Las Vegas adoption agency that works with you to answer these questions. You can contact us if you’re questioning if adoption is right for you. Our adoption specialists will talk you through your options. No matter how far along you are, adoption is possible.
What is the Adoption Process at 8 or 9 Months Pregnant?
The adoption process is nearly the same whether you are 8 weeks or 8 months pregnant. The only difference is that the sooner you start the process, the more time you have to make decisions.
As soon as you contact Adoption Choices of Nevada, you begin meeting with your own adoption specialist. They are also referred to as your adoption specialist. This is the person who will be by your side for pregnancy and birth. Your adoption specialist focuses on you and your baby. We will get to know you and your situation to give you the best advice. They can also answer any questions you have about adoption in Las Vegas. They talk you through the adoption process, and together you’ll come up with an adoption plan.
An adoption plan is a document with all of your decisions regarding your pregnancy, birth, and adoption. It’s okay if you don’t know what you want yet. Your Birth Parent Counselor will explain all of your options. If you want advice, they can also provide that.
Decisions that Will Need to be Made Before Giving Birth
1. The Type of Adoption You Want
There are three types of private adoption in Nevada: open, semi-open, and closed. Open adoptions have full communication between you, the adoptive family, and your child. Semi-open adoptions have limited communication through a secure line. You keep your information confidential while still receiving updates on your child. Adoption Choices of Nevada uses a line called ChildConnect. Finally, closed adoptions have zero communication, and no identifying information is shared.
2. The Adoptive Parents
You choose who adopts your child. Your Birth Parent Counselor will give you adoptive family profiles for you to consider. The families they choose for you will be based on what you want for your child. Any specific requests you have can be met, whether that’s the family’s religion, age, location, etc. The adoptive family profiles will meet your requirements and are ready to adopt your child. All of our adoptive families have passed background checks and home visits. Giving up a child for adoption is never easy, but having control over where your child goes can help. You can live in peace knowing you chose the best possible future for your child.
3. Your Hospital Birth Plan
Part of your adoption plan will be your hospital birth plan. This explains who is in your hospital room with you, who names the child, and who can hold them. Anything else you need will be explained as well. Your Birth Parent Counselor will be at the hospital with you to make sure everything goes according to plan. They are your advocate and take unnecessary stress off of you.

How to Work with Our Nevada Adoption Agency
Giving a baby up for adoption does not mean you’re actually giving anything up. We prefer the term “placing” a child for adoption. The only reason you’ll see “giving” on our website is to reach birth mothers searching for similar terms. By choosing adoption, you are choosing the best future for your child. You are making a brave and selfless decision. You are also giving other couples a chance to have a baby.
Adoption Choices of Nevada has adoption agencies located across the state in Las Vegas and Reno. Contact us as soon as you start questioning adoption. This can be when you’ve just found out you’re pregnant, are in labor, or already have a newborn. No matter the time, we will help you finalize an adoption plan.
