Pregnant and Considering Adoption in Nebraska

What to do when that pregnancy test comes back positive, and you were not expecting that result? Do you feel fearful or anxious? If so, it’s hard to know who or where to turn for help. You may turn to the baby’s father, your immediate family, or even your friends, and when you do, you may get a lot of very different opinions. This can cause you to feel more confused.

First, you want to be sure you fully understand your options. Then, you can reach out to a kind and non-judgmental Lifetime Adoption coordinator. Your coordinator explains each option in detail and provides you with the needed resources. Then, you can call, text, or fill out our online form, and Lifetime Adoption will provide the assistance you need.

What is the Adoption Process in Nebraska?

Lifetime Adoption has been helping expectant mothers in Nebraska learn about the adoption process for over three decades. Just call, text, or fill out our online form. An adoption coordinator will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and provide the necessary adoption information.

If you decide adoption is the right choice for you and your baby, check out the Lifetime adoptive family profiles. You can decide to talk with a family or a few families you think might be the right fit for you and your baby. Whether you want a family from Nebraska or another state, you are the one who gets to choose. You can pick a family with the values and lifestyle you would like your child to grow up in and a family that supports the type of contact you would like in the future. Did you know that adoption isn’t only for newborns? If you are parenting a toddler or older child and it is not a good situation for your child, Lifetime can help you create an adoption plan. A professional counselor will help create a transition plan and a healthy post-adoption contact agreement to benefit everyone involved in the adoption process.

One important part of your adoption journey will be your hospital plan. Don’t worry. Your adoption coordinator will help you create this by making a plan that will outline details such as who will be in the delivery room, who will hold the baby first, and other hospital details. This plan will let the hospital staff and adoptive family understand what your wishes are. You will also have legal representation provided at no cost. Your lawyer will make sure that you understand your rights and how adoption works legally.

Open Adoption in Nebraska

Today the most common type of adoption is open adoption. With modern, open adoption, the birth parents make all the decisions. They choose who will adopt their baby and even how much and what kind of contact they want in the future. Your Lifetime coordinator will guide you through your adoption plan. She will have questions for you, such as:

  • What lifestyle traits or values are you looking for in a family?
  • What kind and how much contact would you like in the future?
  • How do you see your stay at the hospital going?
  • Do you have pregnancy-related support or resources you need?

If parenting is not a great option for you, there is no more loving and courageous choice than adoption you can make for you and your baby. With modern adoption, you don’t have to say goodbye to your baby forever. Instead, you can get updates and pictures and even have visits with your child and the adoptive family. Many of our birth mothers have close and lasting relationships with their child’s adoptive families. Recently, a birth mother of ours was getting married, and she asked if her daughter could be there. She was not only there, but the adoptive parents were there as well, and the adoptive father even walked the bride down the aisle.

Help With Pregnancy Expenses and More

Cara decided to give Lifetime a call when she was considering adoption. She was in a situation that she did not want her baby to grow up in, and she wanted to avoid foster care. She was also struggling with unexpected pregnancy-related expenses and did not know what to do. Her Lifetime Adoption coordinator let her know that in the state of Nebraska, pregnancy-related expenses are not covered in the statutes but may be able to be covered, but the court can approve them. A legal representative will ask the court for permission for adoptive parents to help with:

  • Legal and attorney fees
  • Medical costs related to your pregnancy
  • Pregnancy-related living expenses
  • Counseling

Adoption Laws in Nebraska

Nebraska adoption laws can be hard to navigate, but don’t worry. Your Lifetime coordinator will recommend a Nebraska adoption attorney who will take care of the legal adoption process in Nebraska.

In Nebraska, the timeline for legal documentation for adoption is as follows.

In general, the written consent of the birth parents can be signed no sooner than 48 hours after the birth of the child.

A home study is required in Nebraska as it is in every other state before the finalization of the adoption. Nebraska’s legal requirements may vary depending on each adoption’s facts. Depend on your Nebraska adoption attorney to make sure all legal requirements are followed.

Nebraska Home Studies

A home study is a legal document that is a critical part of the adoption process. It shows your ability to parent and care for a child. Your Lifetime Adoption coordinator will refer you to a qualified home study provider in Nebraska.

With a home study, be prepared to provide the following:

  • Visits to your home
  • Interviews with all the adoptive parents, their children, and other persons living in the home
  • A self-study document completed by the applicants
  • References from three people
  • Background checks with the Adult Protective Services Central Registry and the Central Registry of Child Protection Cases
  • A criminal records check
  • A medical summary from adoptive parent’s doctors and for each family member
