“Thank you so much for being so responsive! You’re the first agency we’ve contacted that has not only gotten back to us same day, but took the time to call (I was driving, sorry!). Already a head above the rest of the agencies we’ve contacted.”

“We are so grateful for everyone at Lifetime and the amazing level of commitment and support you are showing all of us and the many birth mothers you support.”

a happy family that were hoping to adopt brought together through Lifetime Adoption
Adopting a child into your home is a loving and beautiful blessing for all involved. Lifetime Adoption, a Christian domestic adoption agency, has over 30 years of experience in building families through domestic infant adoption!

Since 1986, our mission has been to connect families hoping to adopt and birth parents, building a bond through open adoption that benefits everyone, including the child.  Lifetime Adoption is one of the top infant adoption agencies in the U.S.  We’ve made the dreams of parenthood come true for thousands of families across the nation by focusing on what we do best, domestic adoption. 

We are happy to assist clients nationwide, specializing in newborn open adoption.  Our founder, Mardie Caldwell, started Lifetime as a result of her own open adoption after losing seven pregnancies.  She designed Lifetime’s successful adoption program to be exactly what she wanted when she was adopting her son.  Now, over 30 years later, she has created a program that guides families through each step of the way, educating and preparing you  for your Lifetime Adoption.

Our online application is free, so there is no charge to apply. Take the first step and apply today! If we feel as though we are a good fit, we will schedule a one-on-one phone conference with you and an adoption coordinator to discuss your adoption dreams.

If you are thinking about adopting a child, let our experience help you through the process completing an adoption for a Lifetime!

The Desire to Parent

Many couples come to Lifetime after experiencing fertility challenges or being given a diagnosis of infertility. Our caring coordinators understand that heart’s desire of wanting to be a mother. Part of Lifetime’s mission is to help educate families hoping to adopt a baby so they can have a full understanding of the benefits of a modern, open adoption.

Helpful Adoption Webinars

One of the ways we do this is through our free online webinars that are available for any prospective adoptive parent each month. Featuring adoption stories, questions, and answers, and special guests, these webinars are often the first step in the adoption process. Couples can broaden their knowledge and begin to prepare their heart for the child meant for them. Here are a few of our top webinars if you’d like to watch and listen now:

Frequently Asked Questions About Adoption

Another way families can learn about Lifetime’s program is by exploring our Frequently Asked Questions. Always growing, this list answers many of the common questions people have before starting the infant adoption process with any adoption professional, including “How old is my baby when I get him or her?”, “What is the total cost of adoption?”, and “Do you ever have twins?”

If you have specific questions about your family situation or just prefer to connect with an adoption coordinator directly, please call or text us at 727-493-0933. Through their years of experience and connections to adoption attorneys and home study providers in each state, if they can’t answer your question, they have the resources to find the answer for you. Or, if you simply prefer to talk about the process, give us a call – we are happy to help you in any way we can.

Our founder, Mardie Caldwell, has been sharing with families for many years, that there is indeed a child for every family who has hopes of adopting a child. So always remember, there is a child for YOU!
