It’s fortunate that despite the many uncertainties surrounding adoption and COVID-19, Texans considering adoption in Dallas, Plano, Garland, Richardson, Carrollton, and other areas of the Dallas metroplex can still fulfill this important calling. If you’re wondering how to adopt a baby during COVID-19, Lifetime Adoption has good news for you. It’s also good news for birth mothers and their babies.
A Christian adoption agency, Lifetime Adoption continues to see an influx of birth mothers in need of adoption options. Hopeful adoptive parents during COVID-19, however, may be hesitant to keep trying to pursue adoption due to restrictions on air travel.
However, while social distancing limits our travel choices, Christian families in and around Dallas can still find open adoptions if they travel by car to neighboring cities. Dallas to Plano is just 25 miles. Dallas to Garland is about 20 miles. The trips from Dallas to Richardson (15 miles) and Carrollton (22 miles) are similarly short. Traveling a few hours by car to nearby states also remains an option. Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and even Tennessee are within a reasonable distance.
Adoption, Pregnancy, and COVID-19
To this end, Lifetime Adoption is committed to facilitating communications between birth mothers giving their baby up for adoption and adoptive families in the cities listed above. We also have adoption networks in other cities within driving distance of Dallas: Austin (200 miles), Houston (250 miles), San Antonio (275 miles), Oklahoma City (210 miles), and more.
We suggest you review our material and resources on pregnancy, adoption, and COVID-19.
Lifetime Adoption During COVID-19
COVID-19 has disrupted so many lives. Many people have canceled plans or reconsidered the timing of all sorts of important events: weddings, vacations, birthdays. Church services have been moved online so that the faithful can still receive the blessings of the Lord.
If you are an adoptive family in or near Dallas, Texas, and are having difficulty finding answers to your adoption and COVID-19 questions, please contact Lifetime Adoption. And please do consider adjusting or rethinking your adoption plan to include children in need of loving Christian mommies and daddies in and around Texas.
