Last Minute Adoption in Reno

Last Minute Adoption in Reno

Birth mothers some times think there is a time limit when placing a child for adoption. There isn’t. If you have been debating whether or not you want to parent and now you are late in your pregnancy, giving birth, or even if you have already taken your newborn baby home, you can change your mind, contact us, and create an adoption plan! Adoption is always an option with Adoption Choices of Nevada. 

You can place your baby for adoption if:

  • You are  9+ months pregnant
  • You are in labor
  • You have just given birth


What is a last-minute adoption?

In Reno, when it comes to “last-minute adoption”, like any adoption, you will travel through the adoption process making decisions about what you want for your child. This includes the type of adoption – open, semi-open, or closed, and how much communication and openness you wish to have with the family and your child, choosing the adoptive family, decisions at the hospital, post-placement counseling, and more! 

Whether you are in your final weeks, on your way to the hospital, in the delivery room, or have just given birth – we can act quickly and help you choose adoption to place your child with an adoptive family. A hospital adoption or last minute adoption is not uncommon and we are well experienced to manage all the details of your adoption plan in Reno in a short amount of time.


Is it legal to give a child up for adoption at the hospital?

Yes. In Reno, Nevada, it is legal to place a child up for adoption at the hospital. The hospital will not be the organization responsible for the process, instead when you want to place your baby for adoption, you just need to tell the hospital you want to work with Adoption Choices of Nevada. You or a staff member will contact us at 775-825-4673 and we will quickly begin making adoption arrangements.


Do hospitals take babies for adoption?

In most states, yes. You can surrender your baby to a staff member at a hospital if the baby is within your state’s Safe Haven age limit. If you leave your baby with a hospital staff member, they’ll start the process to find a safe, loving home for them. This will usually be through foster care with the state. This is referred to as “Baby Safe Haven,” and it is an option for you if you don’t feel ready to parent your baby. However, this is not your only option and choosing a private adoption agency to put my baby up for adoption is the ideal situation and will keep you in control of the planning.

When in this situation, most prospective birth mothers contact an adoption agency like Adoption Choices to create an adoption plan for their baby. Choosing unplanned pregnancy adoption help with an agency has many benefits for you as a potential birth mother that Safe Haven options don’t offer, including:

  • The ability to choose your baby’s adoptive family (if you want)
  • The opportunity to stay in touch with the adoptive parents and watch your baby grow up in an open adoption or semi-open adoption (if you want)
  • Access to free counseling and professional support during and after the adoption process (if you want)

If you are considering this option, just know that it’s never too late to make an adoption plan with our adoption agency in Reno.
