When you’re exploring adoption agencies, it’s good to find out what types of birth mothers and adoption situations they have. In learning about their available adoption situations and what their birth mothers are seeking, it’ll help you discover if you’re a good fit for their adoption program.

Here’s info about just a few of the many birth mothers seeking adoptive parents that Lifetime is currently working with:

We’re searching for an adoptive family to adopt a Caucasian baby due in February. The birth mother is interested in placing her baby with a two-parent Christian family. The family must be very financially secure and also have the time and love needed to provide a wonderful life for her child. She has medical insurance and has started her prenatal care. There are no known health issues, and she’s shared that she is substance free. She would like to continue contact after placement with letters and pictures but is unsure of visits at this time.

Lifetime is also looking for adoptive parents for an African American/Hispanic baby boy due in October. His birth mother is looking for a Christian family, preferably Catholic. She is hoping to find a family who’s turned to adoption as the result of infertility, and who don’t have any children yet. She would like to make to an open adoption plan, to include once a year visits. She anticipates having some pregnancy-related expenses.

And, we’re currently assisting a birth mother who is expecting a baby girl in January. Her daughter will be Caucasian/Hispanic. She’s looking for a two-parent family. She would like an open adoption, to include updates through pictures and letters as well as annual visits. She has been receiving regular prenatal care and is working part-time. There may be some out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Since 1986, adoption expert Mardie Caldwell has been dedicated to bringing couples and birth parents together in order to fulfill their dreams.

“Many years ago, I was also searching for a child to adopt. We didn’t know where or how to get started. Through research, determination, and a prayer, our dream of a family became reality. I started with a plan, a notebook, assistance from a caring adoption consultant and a lot of hard work; this was my family I was building. We had a few heartaches along the way, but the pain of not having children was worse!

Within weeks we had three different birth mothers choose us. We were overwhelmed and delighted. Many unsettling events would take place before our adoption would be finalized, many months later. Little did I know that God was training and aligning me for the adoption work I now do today. It is my goal to share with our families the methods and plans which succeed and do not succeed. I believe adoption should be affordable and can be a wonderful “pregnancy” for the adoptive couple.

I have also been on both sides of infertility with the loss of seven pregnancies and then conceiving by new technology, giving birth to a healthy daughter. I have experienced first-hand the emotional pain of infertility and believe my experience allows me to serve your needs better.

It is my hope that for you, the prospective parents, your desire for a child will be fulfilled soon.”
