Do I need to be an American citizen or live in the United States to adopt through Lifetime Adoption?

American citizen United States active duty adoptions
Here at Lifetime, we love and appreciate our military families. If you are currently an active duty military family stationed abroad for your service, we can assist you! If you are currently residing within the United States long term, and at this time you are not a U.S. citizen, you are welcome to apply for our program. Unfortunately, if you live abroad for any other reason, we cannot assist in your adoption at this time. We do work with the Virgin Islands and other U.S. Territories.
