Experiencing a Second Unplanned or Unexpected Pregnancy, Can I Get a Same Family Adoption?

Say you are experiencing your second unplanned pregnancy, and you still feel that you are not ready to be a parent. You could be thinking about going with the adoption process again for your second unborn child, but you could be having some doubts, you might even consider a same family adoption. Some birth mothers experience feeling guilt or that they are giving up. It is important to remember that choosing adoption for your baby is not giving up and our staff here at Adoption Choices of Nevada are here to help. 

What is the Adoption Process like the Second Time Around

Going into your second adoption experience, nothing unexpected is going to happen. The adoption process will typically be the same as it was the first time you went through it. We know that going through your second adoption process can be just as stressful and emotionally draining as your first adoption experience. You can contact us, our information is at Adoption Choices of Nevada, and one of our adoption specialists will help work out the details with you. After that, you will be able to have your selection of adoptive families to choose from. This step is the one that can be different from your first time going through the adoption process. You can choose to have the same adoptive family or a different one. Going with your adoptive family from your first adoption is called a same family adoption, and it is always a good option. Once you get all the details worked out with one of our adoption specialists and the adoptive family, you choose your adoption plan and then set up communication with the adoptive family, and then you are all set! Remember, at any point in time you want to change some things with your adoption plan, you can! We want you to feel safe and secure about your adoption plan.

Getting a Same Family Adoption is not a Guarantee

Now deciding to put your baby up for adoption the second because you think it’s a guarantee that you’ll get the same adoptive family is not wise. It’s not a guarantee that you will be able to choose and work with the same adoptive family from your first adoption. The family also has a choice. If the family is looking to adopt again, then same family adoption is possible, and a great option since you already know the family. However, the family can decide not to adopt, and that could be because they are not quite ready to adopt again or they only wanted to adopt one child. 

What do I do if I can not get the Same Family to Adopt My Baby?

If the adoptive family you worked within your first adoption process decides that they are not ready to adopt again, there is no need to panic. One of our adoption specialists will send you profiles of adoptive families we have waiting and ready to adopt. It will be similar to when you first went through the adoption process, and our staff here at Adoption Choices of Nevada will be with you every step of the way.
