Is Adoption Still an Option?
If you are in labor, at the hospital, or your baby has just been born and you are feeling that parenting your newborn or young child is not the right option for you or you feel in your heart that another family is right for your child, you can still choose adoption and make an adoption plan. A last minute adoption or a hospital adoption is a process that our adoption center is familiar with.
Please contact Adoption Choices of Nevada 24/7: 855-940-4673 (Toll-Free) or locally at 702-474-4673 (Las Vegas) or locally at 775-825-4673 (Reno). We can help you develop an adoption plan. You can pick a family, meet them in advance of placement, have an open, semi-open, or closed adoption, and have the assurance that your baby’s needs are being met and will have a solid future.
Some women contact Adoption Choices of Nevada as soon as they find out they are pregnant, while others wait until the final weeks of their pregnancy or even contact us after their baby has been born and they are at the hospital or have gone home.
We tell them the same thing: It is never too late to do what is best for yourself and your child, and adoption is always an option for you. We are a full-service adoption agency that also accepts children after birth, and we can provide all of the services you need to quickly complete your after-delivery adoption. You can complete the entire adoption process within a matter of days – all from the delivery room, or even after returning home from the hospital.
We frequently work with birth mothers who have tried to parent but have decided adoption is the best option for their child. Whether a few days or a few years after your child is born, you still have the same rights and choices as any expectant mother who contacts Adoption Choices of Nevada. You will be in control of your adoption plan and are entitled to the same free adoption services we offer to all of our prospective birth mothers.

Our agency has 3 local offices. Each local office has experienced adoption caseworker who will guide you throughout the entire adoption process. Your local adoption caseworker is important to be able to assist with community resources such as: Medicaid, SNAP, Doctor, Hospital, financial services and Transportation. Each adoption caseworker knows Nevada laws regarding adoption which prevents last minute complications.
YES! You have the option of selecting the adoptive family. Each family makes a picture profile, which is a mini-scrap book that tells you about their lives. All prospective adoptive families are extensively screened. They must complete a very in-depth home study investigation prior to be approved as potential adoptive parents.
If you wish, the adoptive family you’ve selected can come meet you before the baby is born. You can have as much or as little of a relationship with the adoptive family as you would like.
Adoption is a shared gift of love between two families. Ongoing correspondence is definitely an option for you as a birth parent. Openness in adoption is a continuum and no single arrangement is right for everyone. Your assigned caseworker will discuss with you Semi-Open, Open or Closed adoptions.
Birth Father’s have legal rights and responsibilities pertaining to adoption in Nevada. Our agency staff is always willing to discuss any adoption related issues with you at a location of your choice. All communication is confidential by law and practice.
