This process can feel overwhelming or impossible to navigate. The good news is you don’t have to go through it alone. At Adoption Choices of Nevada, we are experts in the Nevada adoption process, including Nevada adoption laws and expectations. Meet with an adoption counselor today and begin your adoption journey.

When and How to Contact an Adoption Counselor

You can contact us at any stage of your pregnancy. Whether you’ve just discovered you’re pregnant or you just gave birth, you can give us a call. We can also give you guidance and tools if you are considering placing an older child for adoption. If you prefer an in-person meeting to a phone call, you can schedule an appointment to come in and speak to one of our adoption experts. You can also always email us to begin your adoption plan. While you can contact us at any stage of your pregnancy, the earlier you begin the adoption process, the more resources we will be able to provide you. 

Resources Available to Parents During the Adoption Process

Our adoption agencies are here to support you in any way we can during your adoption. We provide a wide variety of adoption services to you, no matter what situation you find yourself in. We can provide financial assistance to help with the cost of pregnancy and adoption. In Nevada, if the adoptive family is able, they can cover certain expenses during the birth parents’ pregnancy. You can be reimbursed for food, rent, medical treatment, and medical-related transportation. Our adoption experts will also help you find an attorney to assist with the legal process of adoption. If you are in need of medical support, we can help make an adoption plan that covers your medical needs. We provide resources for birth parents without medical insurance to make sure you have the necessary medical care during your pregnancy. 

Another major resource we provide to birth parents is transparency. You can be as involved in the adoption process as you would like. You can assess your adoption opportunities and decide what options are best for you. You can pick how open you want your adoption to be. Through Adoption Choices of Nevada, you are able to choose the adoptive family your child will end up with. With open or semi-open adoption plans, you can be involved to a degree with your child’s life. We also provide a thorough support structure to birth parents. If you find yourself in need of professional mental health assistance, we can help you find a therapist or counselor. We also hold regular birth parent support groups where you can meet with other people in your situation. You are not alone in the adoption process, no matter where you start it from.

Our goal is to put the power in your hands— whatever choice you make, we will do our best to honor it. Your adoption counselor is here to support you no matter what. We want you to make smart, informed decisions about your future and your child’s future, whatever that looks like for you.
