Ask Lifetime

by | Feb 22, 2013 | Adoptive Families Blog

Q. What happens if the baby is born and there are medical problems we don’t feel we can handle?

A. It is very rare in this age of medical technology that we are unaware of medical issues prior to birth, but it can happen. We have families waiting who have requested special needs children that are prepared for the long-term needs of a child with disabilities. It is Lifetime’s policy to find homes for all our children and prevent them from going into the foster care system. In the event a child has drug exposure, we have families waiting and willing to adopt.

We never force a family to take a child home if they don’t feel that a child is meant for them. Birth parents appreciate the fact we have families for their children. In regards to your adoption plan, you would continue to be presented to birth mothers and be matched with a birth mother as soon as possible. There are no additional fees paid by the family.
