TESTIMONIALS

“When I found out I was pregnant as a 16-year old high school sophomore, I panicked. I was so scared more than anything; I didn’t know what to do. I thought about abortion, but for me, it wasn’t something I could do. My mom talked with me about my future goals and how a baby would fit into that life...
“When I found out I was pregnant in August 2013, my options were limited. I just wasn’t going to be able to do it; financially, I wasn’t stable enough; I am a single mother of four sons who works as a server at a local casino. ‘Adoption was my only choices besides abortion.’

The choice of adoption is a positive alternative to an unplanned pregnancy. An adoption decision can be difficult to make on your own. The agency will be there to provide support, information and pregnancy related counseling so you can make the best decision for you and your family.

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.
