Adoption in Maine: The First Steps
No matter what stage you are in your pregnancy or what your reasons are for adoption, we can help you. Our caring professionals have worked with birth mothers all over the country. Some are teenagers, some are in their twenties or thirties. Birth mothers who choose Lifetime Adoption are students, professionals and those who are still figuring out where life is going to take them. Some are single, some in strong relationships and some are going through divorce. There is no singular story, and yet we assure you, you are not alone.
The first step to take when planning your adoption in Maine is calling us at Lifetime. We will give you all of the information you need to make the best decisions for your child. We encourage you to complete an online questionnaire, which will help us learn what you are looking for in adoptive parents. We will also talk more about the adoption process itself.
Picking Adoptive Parents: What You Need to Know
Lifetime Adoption contracts with parents in Maine and throughout the United States. Our adoptive parents are just as diverse as the birth mothers who choose them. We have parents of all races and backgrounds. Some are strongly religious while others are less so. One thing our adoptive parents all have in common is their desire to provide a home for a child.
We will look over your questionnaire and talk with you about what you want from the adoptive parents. You can then go through several options to see if there is a good fit. If you don’t immediately click with a couple, we’ll keep looking until you are satisfied. You will never be forced to choose a couple that you don’t think is perfect for your baby.
Prospective Parents: Open Adoptions in Maine
At Lifetime Adoption, we prefer families pursue an open adoption in Maine. These adoptions allow the birth parent(s) to have an ongoing relationship with the child in a manner that is most comfortable to them. Many wish to receive regular updates about the baby’s progress along with cards and photographs. Some desire occasional visits, particularly around holidays. When you contract with Lifetime, be sure to let us know your comfort level regarding open adoptions.
Open adoption has been proven to be the most psychologically and emotionally healthy way to adopt. The child grows up knowing that he or she was lovingly placed in the arms of a family that badly wanted them. The child also does not have to wonder about their birth parent(s). Call us today to learn more about open adoption in Maine.
