What is a Nevada Closed Adoption?

By Shannon Reilly

When thinking about a Vegas Adoption, you may be wondering what all of your options are. There is the option of open adoption, semi-open adoption, or closed adoption. In this article, Adoption Choices of Nevada will focus on the ins and outs of closed adoption. Still, information regarding Nevada’s other three types of adoption will also be provided. 

Steps to Take Before Placing Your Child for a Nevada Closed Adoption

There are many things to consider when creating your adoption plan. The first thing to do before landing on a closed adoption is to understand the types of adoption. At Adoption Choices of Nevada, we offer our birth mothers three different types of adoptions: open, semi-open, and closed adoption

Open Adoption

Open adoption is where you will have direct contact with the adoptive parents after finalizing an adoption. This is the type of adoption that most birth mothers choose these days because although you are giving up your parental rights, you will always have the option of communicating with your child and the adoptive parents. You may keep in touch with the adoptive family and your child by directly receiving photos and letters and setting up visits with the adoptive family. There is also personal information shared in this scenario, such as addresses, phone numbers, etc. You will also be able to choose your adoptive family in this situation.

Semi-Open Adoption

A semi-open adoption is where you will have limited contact with the adoptive parents and your child after the birth and after the adoption is finalized. Although you will have some type of communication, it will not be direct as it is in an open adoption. Instead, you will most likely communicate through the adoption agency in Las Vegas. There will also be no in-person meetings after the birth, but instead there will be photos and letters shared through the agency or an online portal. This type of adoption is for birth mothers who want to know how their child is doing but not necessarily be present in the child’s life. You may also choose the adoptive family in this type of adoption. 

Closed Adoption

In a closed adoption, there is no contact between you and the adoptive parents. There is no personal information shared with either party in this case, such as full names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. The only information that is shared about you is your medical history.

Things to Consider when Choosing a Nevada Closed Adoption 

There are also some things to think about before choosing a closed adoption. You should consider how you may feel in years to come and whether or not you may eventually want some type of relationship with your child. This also works the other way around. If your child grows up and wonders about you and may want a relationship with you, it may be challenging to find information about you in a closed adoption. If you would like full closure within your pregnancy and adoption, this is the type of adoption you may want to move forward with.
