What Are The Steps For an Adoption in Vegas?

The goal of an adoption process is to complete three simple steps:

  • Choosing an adoption type.
  • Finding the right adoptive family.
  • Using Adoption Choices of Nevada services that are available and eligible for you. 

Adoption types:

  • Open Adoption is when you would like a personal relationship with the adoptive family. This includes consistent communication that is good for you. Types of communication are scheduled in-person visits, video and phone calls, and personal emails and letters with pictures of the child’s progress.
  • Closed Adoption is when you do not want a relationship with the adoptive family. You think there should be no form of contact with them or your child for the foreseeable future.
  • Semi-Open Adoption is less personal and has more boundaries. The forms of communication are similar to open adoption. However, they are less frequent and professional. Adoption Choices of Nevada mediates them.

Questions to consider to find the right adoptive family you trust:

  • Do you want the adoptive family to live in a nearby location or farther?
  • Do you want an upbringing similar to yours growing up or what you think is right?
  • Would you want an adoptive family with similar morals and values as you?
  • Would you want the adoptive family to share a similar ethnic or cultural background, or it’s not a preference?
  • If you are religious, do you want an adoptive family with the same religion, no religious affiliation?

Adoption Choices of Nevada has many services for you to use. Check out more about the adoption process in Reno here.

  • Financial Assistance can be found through our particular loans and grants. We can also assist in paying for rent, transportation, phone bill, maternity materials, groceries, and other expenses if eligible. 
  • Medical Checkups we can help with, if you have a primary doctor or not, we can help schedule consistent checkups for your physical health, including the child. We have a list of doctors at our agency who will gladly be your primary doctor if needed.
  • Housing is an option for anyone who has certain living circumstances. We have a list of options near you where you can stay during the adoption process.
  • Birth Plan is something that is discussed with your doctor. You plan out how every aspect of your pregnancy delivery will play out. This can include the location, how the birth will go, and what people are in the delivery room.
  • Free Counseling services are here during and after the adoption process. You can take as much time as you need with our one-on-one or group counseling sessions. We take your mental health seriously, and if you need someone to vent or share your feelings with, our doors are always open.
