How to Cope with a Changing Open Adoption in Nevada
Are you pregnant and unsure of how to care for your baby? Have you just given birth and aren’t sure you want to parent? An adoption is an excellent option for both you and your baby, and there is a range of different adoption options in Reno available to you. You can decide the type of adoption you want based on the amount of contact you want with the adoptive parents and your child. All of these decisions are up to you, and here at Adoption Choices of Nevada, we want you to feel like you’re in complete control of all of your decisions from the moment you find out you’re pregnant to the moment you place your baby with their adoptive family.
You may have never considered the possibility of NV adoption help, but we’re here to guide you through every step of the process.
There are three most prevalent adoption types: open, semi-open, and closed. None of these types of adoption are better than the other; you choose whichever option works best for you.
What are the Different Types of Adoptions in Nevada?
Open adoptions are exactly how they sound: open communication between the birth mother and adoptive parents. Closed adoptions (we’ll get to that later) used to be the norm, but in contemporary society, open adoptions are gaining popularity. Open adoptions benefit not only the child but also the birth mother and adoptive parents as well. All parties involved benefit from the support system that is established in an open adoption. The child has at least three if not four (if the biological father is also involved) people to love and support.
Additionally, the adoptive parents also benefit from the support of the birth mother. It will never be negative to have more people caring for and supporting the child. Having a good relationship between all involved parties is good for the child, adoptive parents, and the birth mother. Our adoption counselors are here to help you develop the kind of relationship you want with the adoptive family in a way that ensures you and they are comfortable.
In this type of adoption, both parties decide the type of relationship they would like to have. Some birth mothers only want sporadic updates, while others may want regular updates via phone or email and/or annual visits.
Semi-open adoptions offer limited contact between the birth mother and adoptive parents. This type of adoption allows the birth mother to receive regular updates about the child without being a constant presence in the child’s life. Our counselors will act as mediators between you and the adoptive parents, and all information about the child will be distributed through us. Semi-open adoptions also provide privacy for the birth mother.
In a closed adoption, there is no contact whatsoever between the adoptive parents and the birth mother. The only information that the adoptive parents will receive about you is your medical history.
Deciding Which Type of Adoption is Best for You
Whether you make the decision to have a closed, open, or semi-open adoption is completely up to you. The most important detail is that your child is safe, loved, and cared for.
We will help you make the best decision for you and your child. Adoption Choices of Nevada doesn’t just assist with the Nevada adoption process but will also provide you with assistance after your child is placed with their new family. If you require counseling during and after the adoption process, Adoption Choices of Nevada will be here to help you with whatever you may need.
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to choosing adoption for your child. What matters most is that you and your child are taken care of throughout the adoption process.
