Last-Minute Adoption in Reno: It’s Never Too Late

By Sylvie Christen

An unplanned pregnancy is difficult for any woman to face. If you do not wish to parent or terminate the pregnancy, you may want to put your baby up for adoption. If you are late in your pregnancy or preparing to deliver, you may be wondering, can I still place my baby for adoption? 

Luckily, last-minute adoption is still possible! You can choose adoption at any point. Whether you are pregnant, in the hospital, or have just given birth, Adoption Choices of Nevada can help. We are your local nonprofit adoption agency and the best choice to guide you through the adoption process. In this article, we will be explaining the last-minute adoption process and how you can start it today.  

Last-Minute Adoption is Possible

No matter where you are in your pregnancy, it is not too late to create an adoption plan. When you contact Adoption Choices of Nevada, our caring, experienced adoption specialists will explain the adoption process to you. We will be sure you understand the entire process and what it means before you choose adoption. 

To begin, simply contact us. Our staff is available to call or text 24/7 with any questions you may have. 

For your initial meeting, an adoption specialist can either meet you in person or virtually. We can see you in our Reno adoption offices or come to you anywhere in the state. Our staff will prioritize your comfort and health during the entire process. 

At this meeting, many of your questions may be answered, and you may begin to discuss your adoption plan. You determine every aspect of this plan, and we will never judge your circumstances or coerce you into a decision you are not ready for. 

The Adoption Process in Nevada

If you decide to give a baby up for adoption, the next step is to create a detailed adoption plan. This document or outline will be your guide throughout the adoption process. 

One of the first things you may want to determine is the level of openness in your adoption. There are three types: open, closed, and semi-open. You will decide which type best suits your situation and enter an agreement with the adoptive family. 

Next, you may review profiles of waiting for adoptive families. Choosing an adoptive family is a very personal decision, and many factors come into play. Adoption Choices of Nevada serves diverse couples and families, including but not limited to: 

  • LGBTQ families
  • Transracial adoption
  • Single parent adoption
  • Second parent adoption
  • We are not a religiously affiliated organization!  

Do not worry if these steps feel intimidating or overwhelming. Our staff is here to advocate for you and ease your burden!

Benefits of a Nevada Private Adoption 

When you choose to give your baby up for adoption with us, you will see the benefits that come with working with a private agency. For one, private adoption means you are able to make all the decisions regarding your pregnancy and the adoption. You are avoiding the involvement of state agencies like CPS and DCFS. 

Secondly, we are licensed to provide financial support to birth mothers. Adoption is always free for the mother. You can discuss your financial needs with your adoption specialist when creating your adoption plan. Depending on your circumstances, we are able to provide help for pregnancy-related costs such as housing, travel, groceries, and phone bills. If you are in a dangerous situation, we can help you find a safe place to stay. 

Lastly, we understand giving up your child is an extremely difficult decision. You likely will experience negative emotions such as guilt and sadness throughout the adoption process. However, we want you to know that you are not giving up! “Giving up a baby” is negative adoption language used to help birth mothers find resources. You are taking a brave step, and adoption can be incredibly rewarding. 

We offer post-placement counseling for birth mothers at any point after the adoption is finalized. Contact us now to learn more about how we can help you!
