assisting and supporting expectant mothers and others in their search to find qualified loving adoptive families

Couples facing infertility may be exploring adoption for the first time, often with questions about the cost of adoption and how the process works. Lifetime provides personalized help and guidance for every family as they decide their preferences in adoption, such as age of child, race, and more. We also help educate families about open adoption and the benefits of maintaining that contact for everyone in the adoption triad. Our focus is domestic newborn adoption, although we also assist with adoptions of infants and young children occasionally.

Lifetime was born of founder Mardie Caldwell’s personal story. After losing seven pregnancies, she turned to adoption to build her family. As an early supporter of open adoption, her heart for birth mothers is unsurpassed. She has both personally and professionally seen the value that open adoption can bring to children, adoptive parents, and birth parents. “It is just more people to love our children,” she often says when describing what a healthy open adoption can look like.

As a leader in open adoption, Caldwell is seen as an adoption expert, making hundreds of media appearances and writing seven books on the subject. Lifetime clients benefit directly from her expertise with a program and services that are cutting edge, as well as hearing directly from her in webinars and other educational opportunities.

We look forward to helping you discover more about the benefits and opportunities of open adoption through a Lifetime Adoption.

Everyone at Lifetime has been so accommodating and patient as we’ve navigated through the process.
