Reasons to Place Your Baby for Adoption

Pregnancy is scary, but the adoption process doesn’t have to be. You probably have a plethora of reasons as to why you’re considering adoption for your baby, and some of those reasons may include career progression, lack of financial and medical resources, or an insufficient support system. If any of these situations are true for you, consider asking yourself some of these questions to determine if adoption is indeed the right choice for you.

Questions to Ask if You’re Considering Adoption

Although this list may not be exhaustive, it can assist you in discovering whether or not adoption is the best choice for you.

  • Are you ready to be a parent?
  • Do you think you’re too young to raise a child?
  • Are you financially ready to raise a child?
  • Do you have adequate support from your friends and family?
  • Does the biological father want to be involved? 
  • Are you two together? 
  • Is co-parenting an option?
  • Are you at a place in your life where a baby isn’t conducive to your job or lifestyle?
  • Can you afford medical, dental, and vision insurance for your child?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, adoption might be the right choice for you and your baby. After asking yourself these questions and determining that adoption is the best option for you, our adoption consultants will be able to help you through the adoption process.

The Adoption Process in Reno, NV

After making the decision to put your baby up for adoption, you’re probably wondering what your next steps are. 

Your first step is to contact Adoption Choices of Nevada. We are available 24/7 via phone or email to help you get started with your adoption journey. The second step of this process is speaking with an adoption counselor. Your adoption counselor assists you with choosing the type of adoption you want (open, semi-open, or closed), the adoptive family, and your birth plan. Your specific adoption plan may also include financial and medical assistance and/or counseling during and after your pregnancy. 

Depending on the type of adoption you choose, you may also receive regular updates about your baby. Open adoptions involve open communication between you and the adoptive family. You may decide that you want progress photos or annual visits. Semi-open adoptions involve limited contact with the adoptive family, and you will receive all information about your child through our adoption mediators. This type of adoption provides privacy and confidentiality for both you and the adoptive family. Whichever type of adoption you choose is entirely voluntary and ultimately your decision. 

Making the Right Choice for You

Adoption is one of the best choices you can make for both you and your baby. You gain the opportunity to help someone else start a family, while simultaneously providing a better quality of life for your child. Your baby will receive the emotional and financial support and stability they need. You will be able to pursue your aspirations knowing you made the right choice for both of you.
