What If I Don’t Want Any Support During the Nevada Adoption Process? 

By Nicole Cunningham

Have you been experiencing unknown emotions during your adoption in Nevada? Giving a baby up for adoption can have its ups and downs, emotionally. When you decide to choose adoption, we at Adoption Choices of Nevada know that it is not an easy choice. We know how hard it can be to go through the adoption process. We also know how much harder it can be if you choose to deal with your emotions on your own. Every birth mother has additional support offered to them. However, it is up to you whether or not you choose to use it. 

What Support Can You Receive During the Adoption Process?  

There are different types of support offered to birth mothers like you, depending on what your needs are. 

  • Medical Assistance
  • Financial aid
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • One-on-one counseling
  • Group Counseling
  • Post Adoption Counseling 

The list above is just some of the most common support that is offered through Adoption Choices of Nevada. We know that all birth mothers have different needs. All of your situations are unique to each individual. Throughout the process, your needs could change, and your situation could change. These services are in place to assist you however you need if you qualify for them. You don’t have to use all of them, you can pick and choose what services or support you need if you are eligible. However, if you choose not to utilize any of the services and support, that is completely up to you. 

Benefits of Receiving Adoption Support

There are benefits for you if you choose to receive or use the additional support services that are offered to you. You could be able to use any of the items listed above during or after you go through with your adoption plan. Our adoption agencies can help make your journey through adoption in Nevada easier. The adoption journey can be hard on you emotionally. These services and support allow us to help make the journey slightly easier. They can help eliminate the stress from medical bills, financial problems, housing issues, or transportation issues. We can help you mentally by getting you in touch with a counselor for one-on-one sessions or group sessions with other birth mothers.

Drawbacks of Not Using Adoption Support Services  

There can be drawbacks for you if you choose not to utilize the support we offer. Adoption from an unplanned pregnancy can bring up tons of emotions. While not everyone will experience these kinds of symptoms, you could experience mental health problems caused by the stress of dealing with financial burdens. The stress can cause problems such as depression, grief, sadness, etc. While they are not required, we do recommend them for all birth mothers. They are of no cost to you. We want to help support you in any way that we can. With our support services, we can help you not have to worry about these stresses and mental health issues. 

Is It Required to Receive Additional Support During the Adoption Process? 

It is not required that you use the additional support services at any point during or after the adoption process. We offer these services and support to help birth mothers like you make this process as easy and smooth as possible. All situations look different, and every birth mother is different. Each of you can handle different levels of stress and emotional distress. With that being said, you do not have to use these services, but they are here to help make each step of the process easier for you. They are there to help you get through the process. 

Can I Change My Mind on Receiving Adoption Support?  

At any point during the process or after, you can change your mind and use these support services. We at Adoption Choices of Nevada want to help you get whatever support you need. If you decide that at first you feel you don’t need services, but halfway through or after the adoption process, you change your mind. That is perfectly fine. You get to choose your adoption journey and the services you decide to use or not use. Those decisions are completely up to you. You are in charge of the path you take during and after this process.
