Financial Support for Adoption
One of the most common concerns we hear from our birth mothers are the expenses involved with adoption. Specifically, what she will need to pay for when choosing adoption. Well, you’re in luck! You don’t need to pay anything! Choosing adoption is always free for birth mothers (parents).
As a private, nonprofit adoption agency, Adoption Choices of Nevada is able to help you cover pregnancy-related expenses. Nevada law allows for appropriate and reasonable living expenses during your pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Your Birth Parent Counselor will help you develop a budget to cover the approved expenses to assist you during your pregnancy and post-partum recovery.
