Lifetime Adoption’s Director Heather Featherston and long-time Lifetime staff member Diane Schafer (Director of Adoption Services) appeared in this episode and shared their adoption expertise on birth mothers, while answering the audience’s questions. Today, we’re giving you access to their expertise as well!

They discussed the information and resources that Lifetime provides to birth mothers, how women choose an adoptive family, the licensed third-party counseling we offer, as well as the peer counseling available to birth mothers. Take a step to better understanding birth mothers, review our common questions we’re asked and watch our video below!

Here are some of the questions that Heather and Diane answered:

“What happens when a birth mom is matched with a family, and she changes her mind?”

“How does a woman choose the adoptive family for her baby?”

“When a pregnant woman calls Lifetime, does that mean she’s ready to make an adoption plan right away?”

“If a woman calls in and just wants to learn more about adoption, what’s Lifetime’s #1 resource for her?”

“Can a woman who says ‘I’m not sure about adoption’ still see adoptive parent profiles?”

“Why is making an adoption video so important to our birth mother presentation?”

“Do you ever get pics of birth moms considering adoption?”

“How Lifetime handles it when a woman says ‘thank you for all the info, but I decided adoption isn’t right for my baby’?”

“Do birth moms like to see that the adoptive family have the nursery all set up and ready? Or is it OK if we’re still in process with our nursery?”

Discover our adoption expert’s answers in this recording of this Facebook Live session!
