If you already have children and you’re seeking to adopt to expand your family through adoption, it’s great to show their enthusiasm for a little brother or sister in your printed adoption profile.
Lifetime typically works with a good number of birth mothers who are hoping to place their baby with a family who already have a child or children. That way, her child will have siblings already. She may have grown up in a larger family and wants the same for her child.
Below is an example of how one adoptive couple displayed their daughter Amy’s excitement about getting a little brother or sister through adoption:
They included this sweet note alongside their letters of recommendation in their printed profile. You may also want to include a photo or two of your child alongside their letter, and/or a sweet drawing they created.
If you’re just beginning the steps to adopt, our Adoption Support Center is a great place to start.
Founder of Lifetime Adoption, adoptive mom, adoption expert, and Certified Open Adoption Practitioner (C.O.A.P).
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.”
