Misconceptions About Adoption in Nevada

By Jacob LaBau

Adoption gets a bad rap, but many pre-held beliefs about adoption are false. Some examples include adoption being expensive for a birth mother, the adoptive family making the choices, or not being able to communicate with the adoptive family. We will debunk all the misconceptions about adoption and detail how Adoption Choices of Nevada can help you.

Adoption in Nevada is simple, and there are helpful adoption specialists ready to take your call. If you are still on the fence about choosing adoption for your child, Adoption Choices of Nevada will educate you about the adoption process. Committing to adoption can be difficult, but once you are in the swing of things, it only gets easier. Find out how to give up a child for adoption by calling us today!

Adoption Is Expensive for a Birth Mother

There is a chance that the adoption process will cost you absolutely nothing. Depending on your current finances, you may be eligible for financial assistance. Living expenses, medical care, counseling, and housing support are all things that we can help you with. Schedule an appointment with an adoption specialist and describe what kind of help you need. This can be done before you have made your final decision to pursue adoption. We understand how stressful adoption is, and the last thing we want you to worry about is your finances. Unplanned pregnancies leave you unprepared, and it can put a dent in your wallet. If you are ready to be a parent, good for you! Just remember that we are always here to take your call!

The Adoptive Family Chooses You

False. You are in complete control of everything that is included in the adoption process. Your adoption specialist will coordinate meetings with prospective families, and it is up to you to decide which one is right for you. Write down any possible deal breakers and show them to your adoption specialist. They will try to find adoptive families who closely resemble your list. The meetings are a good time to ask any questions you might have too. Some examples could be: how religious are you and your partner? What are your thoughts on our current politicians? How will you raise my child? The first meeting is a good opportunity for you to address the important stuff. Then, if you want to put your child up for adoption, we will help you find the perfect adoptive family!

I Will Not Be Able to Communicate With the Adoptive Family Post-Placement

Many adoptive families tend to desire an open adoption. That means you will receive updates about your child through text, photo, video, or in person. Agreeing to open adoption is a great way to ease any remaining sense of guilt you have. Open adoptions can have varying degrees of contact. It is important to be as specific as possible in all your meetings. If occasional visits are non-negotiable, make sure to tell them that. Then, start creating an adoption plan that works for you and the adoptive family!

The Adoption Process Takes a Lot of Effort

Not at all! A lot of the so-called effort falls on your adoption specialist. All we need from you is to show up! Go to all meetings with your doctor, meetings with the adoptive family, and even meetings with your adoption specialist. We will take care of the dirty work if you are physically or virtually present at all the meetings.

I Am a Bad Person for Choosing Adoption

It is the opposite! Just because you placed your child for adoption does not mean you are a bad person. On the contrary, birth mothers who courageously faced the adoption process are some of the bravest people in the world, and they will admire your courage too! At a surface level, it does seem like you are a bad person. But if you think about it, you are looking out for your baby’s future. It is an unselfish act of gratitude that your child will be thankful for in the future. Find out how to sign up for adoption in Nevada and get started as soon as possible!
