Adoption Services in Tennessee
Adopting a child in TN is a complicated process, but with Lifetime Adoption it doesn’t have to be. Our staff works with birth parents in Tennessee to make sure the adoption process is smooth and pleasant. We will help your adoption in TN be a successful one for you, your baby and the adoptive parents.
How Does Adoption Work?
The first question most birth mothers have is about the adoption itself. The process of adoption in TN starts with you making decisions about what you want. Do you want an open adoption, where you are allowed phone calls, photos or even visits with the child? Would you prefer a closed adoption that does not include future contact? Do you have a preference for the type of family who adopts your baby? You may want to ensure the parents are highly educated, very religious, racially diverse, have a big family or plan to raise the baby as an only child. If you aren’t sure about the answers to these questions, call us and we will help.
There are other, more technical aspects to adoption. Lifetime Adoption has more than 30 years of experience managing adoptions in Tennessee and throughout the United States. If you aren’t sure how the process works and want to know, just ask!
When Does the Adoption Start?
You can start the adoption process at any time you like. Some birth mothers know that they want to find a loving, caring family to adopt the baby as soon as they learn they are pregnant. For others, it takes a little more time to make a decision. You can even begin the Tennessee adoption process after the baby has already been born. Lifetime Adoption also facilitates Tennessee adoptions for older children and siblings.
As with all parts of the adoption, the choice is up to you. Your first step may be to look through our database of waiting parents. You can see the smiling, hopeful faces of future mothers and fathers who want nothing more than to open their homes and arms to a child they can love.
