We will only provide you with information and help you through the loving process of adoption in PA.
Birth Parents Living in Pennsylvania
Whether you are pregnant, a new mom or a parent of older children, adoption may be the best choice for you. Lifetime Adoption specializes in newborn adoptions, but we gladly work with children of most ages. All we want is to find a loving home for your child; one that you know will provide the future your baby deserves.
The first step to take when pursuing adopting a child in Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh, is completing our online questionnaire. This short questionnaire does not require that you sign a contract with us. It only helps both you and our agency to better understand what it is you want out of the adoption.
The Difference Between Open and Closed Adoption
One of the most important factors in an adoption is the nature of the agreement. A closed adoption requires that you have no further contact with the baby after he or she is adopted. While there are some cases in which the birth mother prefers a closed adoption, and it may be better for the child, most of our adoptions are open.
Lifetime Adoption was founded on the premise that open adoptions are better for all three parties in the process of adoption in PA: the adoptive parents, the child and the birth mother. Having an ongoing relationship helps adopted children to be more secure. The birth mother is happier. The adoptive parents are able to understand their child better. It is a true win-win-win situation.
