I Cannot Provide for My Newborn, Can I Still Choose Adoption in Las Vegas?

Being unexpectedly pregnant can make you worry about your future. You may be wondering if you can even financially afford to take care of your baby and provide for that life you want to give them. Through all of this worrying, you may choose that you want to keep your baby and raise them. Yet, once you give birth to your baby and are a new mom, you may realize that you cannot provide for your newborn as you thought. There are so many factors that go into raising a child, and it’s okay if you can’t provide for your child. There are options for you! You can still choose adoption in Las Vegas after birth.

Here at Adoption Choices of Nevada, we have great adoption caseworkers that will help you figure out what’s best for you and your baby. You don’t have to be currently pregnant to contact us and connect with an NV adoption caseworker. You can be in your postpartum pregnancy even after two months of caring for the baby at home. We will be here for you!

Can I Still Make All of the Decisions For an Adoption in Las Vegas?

The simple answer is yes! You can put your baby up for adoption after birth and choose everything that you normally would as a birth mother. This does not matter if you choose adoption after just finding out you’re pregnant or if you choose adoption after a month at home with your baby.

We know that it might be hard to choose adoption after birth. You carried your baby to term for nine months, delivered him or her, and brought them home and raised them for a little bit of time. You might be feeling a connection to your child, and even though you love them, you can’t provide for them like you thought you would. We understand how hard that is, and that’s why we are here for you.

When you connect with one of our adoption caseworkers here at Adoption Choices of Nevada, we will guide you through the adoption process. It will be the same adoption process for you going through an after-birth adoption compared to a birth mother going through it at the beginning of her pregnancy.

Through an after-birth adoption process, you will choose which type of adoption you would prefer: open, semi-open, or closed adoption. If you have an emotional connection with your born child and want to stay in contact with him or her after the adoption process is finalized, you may want to choose open or semi-open adoption. This type of adoption will allow you to still have contact between you, your child, and their adoptive parents. If you would like to move on with your life and have no contact with your child, you can choose a closed adoption in Las Vegas. You can choose any type of adoption you feel is best for you and your child. It is all up to you!

You will then choose which adoptive parents you feel would be a great fit to be parents to your child. This is a difficult decision because you want the best for your child. You may have started to try and be a parent for your child but realized that you’re not able to. Choosing adoptive parents for your child is one of the biggest decisions during the Nevada adoption process because you will be setting your child up for their future.

You can choose the adoptive parents through a database that we will go through with you. It will show different adoptive parents’ profiles which include: names, genders, ethnic and cultural background, ages, hometown, marital status, occupations, personalities, and more! There is a lot that goes into choosing adoptive parents for your birth child, but we will be by your side through the entire process.

Normally, the next step would be to create your hospital and delivery plan, but you can skip this step because you already went through the delivery process! This makes the Nevada adoption plan almost done. The last thing you will need to do is decide if you want post-placement counseling. This is offered to all birth mothers because we understand that you are going through something emotionally draining. We want to support you and give you as much help as we can so that you won’t feel alone because you aren’t alone!

You Can Place Your Baby Up For Adoption

After birth, adoption is a very common adoption. We have seen many birth mothers who already gave birth and tried to make ends meet for their children, but in the end, adoption was the best option for them. It’s okay to choose adoption after birth!

Here at Adoption Choices of Nevada, we support you in all your decisions and want you to give your baby the life that you wish you could give them when you choose adoption in Las Vegas. Choosing all aspects of the adoption is a great way to feel like you are doing the best for your child. It’s never too late to start your adoption process. Contact us today!
