Placing Your Child for Adoption: Next Steps

By: Patience Bramlett

In the midst of discovering your unplanned pregnancy, you decided on adoption. Now you’re wondering, “What are my next steps?” Let Adoption Choices of Las Vegas help! Below, we’ve broken down the need-to-know basics of the adoption process.

Step 1: Choose an Agency

Choosing an adoption professional to assist you with your adoption plan is one of the most importantdecisions for both you and your child. It’s important that your desired adoption agency works in your best interests, builds and adoption plan around your needs, has open communication, and is licensed.

When you choose to work with us, you can be sure that our agency and adoption specialists meet each of these requirements!

Step 2: Choose the Adoptive Family

At our agency, your adoption professional will help you find an adoptive family that best matches your needs and requirements. You will always be able to choose the family for your child, no matter where you are at in your pregnancy or adoption plan.

Step 3: Outline your Hospital Plan

A hospital plan can be a list or a document detailing what you do or do not want during your hospital stay. Creating one before you go into labor helps you mentally prepare for the process. It also allows your adoption professionals and adoptive parents to understand exactly what you want your stay and delivery to look like.

Step 4: Decide on Contact Post-Placement

Adoption is becoming more and more open. With that said, you’re able to determine how much contact you’d like with the adoptive family during your pregnancy and after placement.

There are three different types of relationships you can have with an adoptive family: open, semi-open and closed. Some birth mothers choose to only receive pictures and letters once a year. But, if you want, you can have more contact and even in-person visits. The level of contact you will have with your child and the adoptive family is up to you.

Knowing the Basics of Adoption: It’s a Great Option

Over the last few decades, adoption has transformed into an increasingly positive experience for everyone involved. From choosing a family to deciding how much contact to have with your child, you will be in charge of the entire process, and you will have access to support and guidance the entire way. By being actively involved in the adoption process, you can feel certain that you are not “giving up” your child: you are giving him or her the gift of a family.
