We have spent the last three decades helping birth mothers find perfect families for adoption in Ohio. Whether you live in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo or anywhere else in the state, Lifetime Adoption is here for you.
If you are pregnant and feel parenting a child is not the right choice for you or your child at this time, you have some limited options. The adoption option is not always the first thing that comes to mind when that pregnancy test shows positive and a little panic sets in but it is one that should be considered.
One of our birth mother’s, Annie, who had just graduated high school and was about to start classes to be a dental hygienist, found out she was pregnant. This was not in her plans and she knew she could not raise a baby at this time. Her boyfriend encouraged her to “just go get an abortion.” Annie went to the clinic and was provided with pregnancy options counseling. She did hear about adoption but didn’t really consider that as an option. 24 hours later, she returned to the clinic for the ultrasound prior to the abortion. She was stunned to see that little beating heart. All of a sudden this pregnancy seemed real. This wasn’t just a “procedure”.
Annie left the clinic feeling that she really needed to rethink what she was doing. She pulled out the brochures she had received and read the one on adoption. She realized she could still attend dental hygienist school while pregnant. She could give life to this baby and make a couple who was ready for a child so happy.
Today, Annie receives pictures and updates on her baby once a month. She looks forward to this and is proud of her choice. She graduated hygienist school and is currently working in a dental office and doing really well.
Adoption today, puts you in the driver’s seat. You get to choose the family you would like to raise your child, you can decide on an open, semi-open or closed adoption, and what the process will be at the birth.
The adoption process in Ohio means different things to different people. At Lifetime Adoption, we facilitate open adoptions. These adoptions allow you to continue to have a relationship with your child even after the adoption takes place. Your open adoption may include cards, letters, emails or photos. You may ask for phone calls so that you can speak with the child or the adoptive parents. You can even have occasional visits. Like every child, every adoption is unique. You decide what works best for you.
Not every birth parent wants an open adoption in Ohio. Though Lifetime Adoption focuses on open adoptions, we can also facilitate closed adoptions. This means that you will have no further contact with the child after the adoption is complete. You may find this is better for you and/or the child. We understand and respect that choice. We will make sure your needs are met.
