Unplanned Pregnancy in Reno

What is Unplanned Pregnancy In Reno?

Regardless of your circumstances, know that in Nevada, adoption can be an option for you. Adoption Choices of Nevada is an agency where we empathize with your situation. We know feelings such as fear, shock, anger, and confusion are valid. This agency is a nonjudgmental place; we want to assist you in adoption‒ from planning to answering all of your questions. 

An unplanned pregnancy is exactly what it sounds like, a pregnancy that wasn’t planned. Many many pregnancies in the U.S. are unplanned so a woman or a couple have, in the most simple explanation, three options: carry the baby to term and parent, terminate the pregnancy, and carry the baby to term and place him/her for adoption.

What Are The Steps For an Adoption in Reno?

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.

Choosing the Right Adoptive Family 

Here are some questions to consider when choosing an adoptive family for your child:

  • 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?
