What do we need to start the adoption process?

Have you decided to adopt and now you are wondering “how do you start the adoption process”? The first step toward working with Lifetime is to fill out a secure application on our site by clicking here, or request one be emailed to you. Please be sure to submit a current photo of your family with the application. Your application will not be processed until a photo is received. You may submit your photo via our online application, regular mail, or scan it and email it to us. Please be sure to add your name to the photo or email.

If you are new to adoption, or new to open adoption, we highly recommend you read the book Called to Adoption. It was written by Lifetime’s CEO and Founder, Mardie Caldwell, C.O.A.P., and is an excellent book to help anyone interested in adoption.

“Hi Jen, Thanks so much for the update. We are excited to gather as much information as we can about this process! We started researching adoption about a month ago just running a basic online search. We’ve been trying to conceive for 3 years now and unfortunately haven’t had success. We started to wonder if maybe there was a different path meant for us. We have looked at A LOT of different agencies websites, different ways to adopt etc. and have reached out to a few for more information. When I reached out to Lifetime via email, Becky replied quickly and gave me such great information and made me feel really comfortable like I was getting a response from a person and not something completely automated.
Your website really stands out from some of the others. We love that you can see some of the birth mothers and what they are wanting/expecting for their children. We honestly just found it from a general search, and I’m really happy that we did. As you are checking to make sure that we are the right fit for your program, we are diligently doing the same with Lifetime and a few other agencies. It’s important for us to feel as comfortable as we can in working through this process! We look forward to hearing back from you!”
