Birth Parents Seeking Families

Page last updated on

birth mother in blossoms
We hear from pregnant women and others, every day, who are looking for adoptive parents for their child. Many do not know what modern adoption can look like for them, others wonder if it is even possible due to drug use, legal situation with the father, or age of the child.

Our coordinators take time to answer each and every inquiry. Lifetime’s goal is to meet people where they are, and help them with what they need to move to the next step, even if it isn’t adoption.

As prospective adoptive parents begin the adoption process, they often have an idea of what birth parents may be like. For example, they may believe that most birth mothers are teenagers or are abusing substances. Certainly, there is some of both, but neither describe “most” parents who place a child for adoption.

The thing that all birth parents who make an adoption plan for their child have in common is love. They care deeply about their child, so much so that they will go through the grief and loss so that their child will have a better life than they can provide at this time. The other thing that most of them want today is ongoing communication to know how their child is doing. This can include updates via mail, email, text messaging, video chat and visits.

Are You Hopeful Adoptive Parents Looking for Birth Mothers?

An important part of Lifetime’s program is that adoptive parents learn and understand the heart of a birth mother. As hopeful adoptive parents looking for birth mothers, you need to be ready to embrace not only the baby or child, but also the birth mother as a vital part of her child’s story. Seeing the adoption triad as the “family of adoption” is truly the best way to navigate the journey of adoptive parents. So as you begin your search as adoptive parents looking for birth mothers, it’s good to keep that in mind.

Below, please find some of the inquiries we have recently received to let you see some of the prospective birth parents who we actively working with.

If you are Lifetime adoptive parents looking for birth mothers, you have been presented to available birth parents that meet your preferences, and whom you in turn match what the birth parents are seeking. If you would like to be presented to additional birth parents seeking adoptive parents, please speak with your coordinator about opening your adoption preferences.

If you are NOT Lifetime adoptive parents looking for birth mothers, your first step is to complete Lifetime’s free application.

Please note, this list does not include all those who have contacted us requesting adoption information for their baby or child.

“Dear Lifetime Adoption, about two years ago, I decided to place my child up for adoption. I was only 16 and realized that the best thing I could do for her was to place her with a family that could properly take care of her. Through this agency, I found an amazing couple and I can sleep peacefully at night knowing that she is loved and well cared for. I’m 18 now and have a job and a career I am pursuing through college. Now that I am working I can give back to the agency that was there for me when I was not in a financial situation to care for my daughter. I reached out through the contact page about how I could help and Diane let me know that clothes are needed (thank you Diane!) so included in this box are brand new t-shirts of various sizes, brand new leggings of various sizes, and a gently used shirt and pair of jeans that I wore during my pregnancy. I will continue to donate as much as I can! If there is anything else needed, please let me know! Thank you for changing my life :)”
