You just found out that you’re pregnant. You didn’t plan on having a baby during this time in your life, but now you have to figure out how to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. You’re scared and don’t want to make the wrong choice, but also know that you can’t be a parent right now. If this is you, you’re in the right place. Adoption Choices of Nevada is a private adoption agency that is here to help you figure out how to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. As a birth mother, you have a few different options. The important thing is that you figure out which option is best for you, and don’t rush to make a quick decision.
Choosing Adoption in Nevada
Although some birth mothers choose to terminate their unplanned pregnancy, Adoption Choices of Nevada is here to tell you why adoption is a choice you should consider as you face an unplanned pregnancy. Adoption is a way for birth mothers to provide for their child without actually having to parent them. Many birth mothers are at a stage of life that doesn’t allow them to take care of a child or are focused on other things in life, like work or school. If you are in a situation like this, but you still want to be able to give your child a home and a family, adoption is a great choice for you. Additionally, when you work with an agency like Adoption Choices of Nevada, you will be able to tailor your specific adoption plan to your personal needs and desires for your child, so you will genuinely be able to help give your child a bright future. Finally, adoption takes a great amount of humility and love from each birth mother, so don’t let yourself believe that adoption is giving up on your child or failing as a mother. At Adoption Choices of Nevada, we celebrate adoption and do everything we can to help our birth mothers feel loved and cared for.
How Do I Pursue Adoption?
If you are interested in giving your child up for adoption, your first step will be to find an adoption agency near you. Our agency has locations all over Nevada, and we are willing to meet you where you are if you’re unable to get to one of our local offices. Once you contact one of our agencies, you will be able to start working on your adoption plan. You will be set up with a birth mother counselor who will guide you through the adoption process and assist you along the way. It is our hope that through this process, you will form a close relationship with this counselor, and they will be able to support you practically and emotionally as you deal with the challenges of adoption.
What is an Adoption Plan?
An adoption plan is Adoption Choices of Nevada’s way to ensure each birth mother is accomplishing the necessary tasks in the adoption process. Your first step in your adoption plan will be to figure out what type of adoption you want to pursue. There are three types of adoption: open, semi-open, and closed adoption. In an open adoption, you will be able to maintain frequent communication with your child and may even visit them in person. In a semi-open adoption, you still will be able to communicate with your child, but it will be less frequent and typically doesn’t involve in-person visits. In a closed adoption, your child will not know who you are, and you will not play a role in their life.
Once you decide what type of adoption you want to pursue, you will determine who the adoptive parents will be. If you choose a closed adoption, you won’t actually be able to decide who your child’s adoptive parents will be, but in an open and semi-open adoption, you will receive the profiles of a few different families, and based on these profiles, you will choose which set of parents you believe will be the best fit.
Your final steps in your adoption plan will be to determine important details about the day of your child’s birth. You will figure out who will be present with you at the hospital during labor, and you will figure out where you will give birth. As you make each of these important decisions, your birth mother counselor will help you, and you can seek the counsel of other important people in your life, as well.
