I am homeless and pregnant. What are my options concerning my baby?

In total, you have three options when it comes to being homeless and facing an unplanned pregnancy. The first is to raise the child as your own, which we are sure you are against because you currently can’t afford to raise the child. To add on, since you are homeless, if officials find out, they place the child into foster care instead. When it comes to that, you have no rights at all. The other option is to terminate the pregnancy, which has a stigma as well. When you terminate the pregnancy, you will not carry the child to full term, and the child shall not be born at all. It is a tough decision that many birth mothers face a magnitude of negative emotions afterward due to certain beliefs. The third option is adoption which is where we come in!

Nevada adoption is a legal process when a child is placed into the care of their adoptive parents is a lengthy process. Due to the sensitivity of the process, it includes the court system, and from there, the child will be placed into the home of their family. In many cases, the child doesn’t have any blood relation to their adoptive families. Also, races may depreciate amongst the adoptee and their adoptive families. It is beautiful regardless of race or sexuality, and your child will be safe due to the extensive process and detailed operations that take place to ensure your baby’s safety, so if you live in Nevada and are considering adoption come to  Adoption Choices of Nevada.
