mardie_adoptive_parenting.jpgOne of the best things people who are hoping to adopt can do is not just prepare for the adoption process, but to prepare for becoming a parent. We hope that you can join us next Thursday, May 12th for a special webinar featuring Lifetime’s founder, Mardie Caldwell. She’ll present a new webinar topic: Keys for Great Adoptive Parenting and Bonding. Mardie is an adoptive mom herself, and looks forward to sharing her heartfelt message for anyone hoping to adopt.

More than 30 years ago, Mardie began to pursue her dream of becoming a mother. Through several miscarriages, fertility treatments, and attempts to adopt, she continued forward toward her dream of parenthood.

Through those years of waiting for a child, Mardie began Lifetime Adoption. Eventually she met the child she’d been waiting to add to her life and she continued to educate, support, encourage, and help adoptive parents and birth mothers come together through Lifetime.

In all of those years, even now as a seasoned parent, Mardie never forgotten what it was like to wait and long deeply for a child. One of the things that helped her the most was to focus on preparing for her future baby. As you wait to adopt, prepare for more than just the adoption. Prepare for your life as a parent! Just think of it this way: once you adopt, you’ll have less time to research the best ways to be an amazing parent. So it’s smart to learn all you can now, when you’re in the adoption wait phase of your journey.

Mardie’s experience and tips for great adoptive parenting and bonding will help you look ahead and become the best parent for your future child.

Adoptive parents in all stages (even those of you who have already adopted!) are welcome to attend. We’ll meet Thursday, May 12th at 4pm Pacific Time. Sign up using this link to attend!

Webinars are interactive and we include as many questions and comments from the audience as possible. Join us by phone, online, or using the GoToWebinar app. Don’t miss out on getting adoptive mother Mardie’s great adoptive parenting tips! Remember sign up and attend live. We invite you to attend this special webinar live, because the recording will not be available on our public websites after the original broadcast.
