IS ADOPTION STILL AN OPTION?
If 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 have several options:
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.
If your baby is less than 72 hours old, you may fall under the Safe Baby Haven Law. Adoption Choices of Las Vegas is a Safe Baby Haven drop off point. Call or text us at 702-474-4673 to meet a counselor at our office. You can remain anonymous; no questions asked. Or you can participate and help develop the adoption plan you feel is right for your baby.
It is ok to ask questions. We are here to help.

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.
