Are You Pregnant? Here’s How Lifetime Adoption Can Help

Once your baby is born, adoption can be one of the best ways to provide your child with a safe, stable, and well-supported future.

If you’re an expectant mother looking to place your child with a loving family, our adoption professionals can set you up with the support and services you need right away. We’re also here to talk you through the entire process so you can decide for yourself whether adoption is the best choice for you and your child.

Here are just some of the services Lifetime’s adoption specialists can provide you:

  1. 24/7 Birth Mother Hotline: It’s normal to have questions about the adoption process. We’re here 24/7 to listen without judgment and give you the immediate answers you need. Call or text us anytime at 1-800-923-6784 and you’ll be connected with a real person with a minimal wait time. Or fill out this short online form and an adoption coordinator will contact you right away.

“I adopted my baby girl 31 years ago! Open adoption was a wonderful experience and the best way to do it, in my opinion, for all concerned. I was blessed by Mardie’s Referral and Support Group back then and I highly recommend Lifetime.”
Debbie

“From the very beginning, we were treated like friends. Every conversation with Jennifer made us feel at ease and once we made the decision to apply with Lifetime, it felt like a “no brainer”. Everyone that we came in contact with was knowledgeable, patient and invested in our progress. We could email our coordinator, Robyn, at any time and she made sure to get back with us in a reasonable amount of time or direct us to the right person. Once we were matched, Tiffany was an excellent go-between and stayed encouraging while we navigated a whirlwind match (2 weeks!). However, the MOST important thing was how well they cared for our birth mother and communicated her needs to us. She was always covered. Overall, we could not be happier and would highly recommend Lifetime to other adopting families.”

Our Focus: Open Domestic Adoptions for Newborns in the U.S.

Our primary focus is on assisting families looking for domestic adoptions. Additionally, we focus on educating prospective adoptive families about the advantages of maintaining contact with all parties involved.

Benefits of Open Adoption

Since 1986, Lifetime has offered trusted and successful adoption services nationwide and we are dedicated to offering the best for both expectant mothers and hopeful adoptive parents.

We believe in the benefits of open adoption, where adoptive parents and the adopted child maintain contact with birth parents. Birth mothers play an active role in choosing adoptive parents and continue to have ongoing contact with the child.

Research supports the positive impact of open adoptions. In one study, 84% of adoptees with ongoing contact with their birth parents reported high levels of satisfaction. Adopted children also expressed positive feelings toward their birth parents with no lingering doubts about their identity.

Our History of Trusted, Safe, and Successful Services

We love sharing Lifetime stories and celebrating the success of all types of adoptive families.

For birth mothers considering their options, Lifetime serves as a valuable resource, offering support during unplanned pregnancies or when birth parents make a thoughtful decision about adoption.

Our story begins with the personal journey of our founder, Mardie Caldwell, C.O.A.P. After experiencing seven pregnancy losses, she adopted a newborn and grew her family.

As an early advocate of open adoption, Mardie’s compassion for birth mothers is unparalleled. Having witnessed the benefits of open adoption both personally and professionally, she often says, “It is just more people to love our children.”

Mardie, a pioneer in the field, is recognized as an adoption expert, making numerous media appearances and authoring seven books on the subject. Adoptive parents directly benefit from her expertise through our cutting-edge programs, services, and educational opportunities such as webinars.

We’re eager to help you explore the benefits and opportunities offered by our domestic adoption agency.

Lifetime Adoption is Here to Help You with Our Experience and Network.
