About Open Arms
The goal of the Agency’s adoption program is to provide professional adoption services; work with birth parents who are considering adoption of their children, and assist in the placement of infants in permanent family homes. To achieve this goal, there will be referrals for counseling for birth parents (if needed), home study screening, post-placement supervision of infants, and working with referral sources and attorneys both in Nevada and out of state. The primary purpose will be to ensure the best emotional, financial, and physical needs of the individual infant.
Open Arms Adoption Agency’s fundamental purpose is to maintain and strengthen family life and relationships through the provision of professional services.
To fulfill Open Arms Adoption Agency’s intent of determining who is best prepared to meet the emotional, financial, and physical needs of an infant, referrals for counseling and preparation of the adoption experience will be available for the birth parents and potential adoptive parents. The purpose and intent is to ensure a healthy adjustment for all members involved in the adoption.
Adoptive screening will include an assessment of the applicant’s motivation, fertility issues, marital relationship, health, financial situation, and feelings about adoption and placement.
The program will be geared to the placement of infants and will meet all state guidelines for such. Adoptions will not be based on the religion, race or sexual orientation of the family but on the wishes of the birth parent(s). Open Arms Adoption Agency’s adoption program will be responsive to the emergency needs of both birth parents and adoptive parents. As a result, the program is open to all persons seven days a week.
