Lifetime Adoption has been a licensed child-placement agency in the state of Florida since 2013, successfully matching adoptive families and birthparents throughout the state as well as nationwide. Our specialty is lending assistance and support to birthmothers in their search for adoptive parents, and Lifetime has gained a well-deserved reputation for providing loving care and guidance to birthparents.
While Lifetime has only been in Florida since 2013, our founder has been assisting with adoption nationwide from California for over 28 years. With nearly three decades of experience and a staff of adoption experts fully committed to finding the perfect match between birthparent and adoptive family, Lifetime is well prepared to help you with your infant adoption in Florida. Also important is that the founder, Mardie Caldwell, is not just an adoption professional. She has also experienced the roller coaster ride of adoption firsthand: Mardie started Lifetime Adoption after her own walk through seven pregnancy losses and her eventual adoptions, as well as her work with women in crisis. Mardie has written numerous books on adoption, frequently appears in the media as an adoption expert, and hosts her own radio show focused on issues common to adoption.
