Newborn adoption is a prayer come true for waiting families. After months or years of yearning, searching, hoping, and praying, bringing home your own little boy or girl is an indescribable moment of joy, and the greatest blessing one can receive.
Lifetime Adoption can help you realize this dream by connecting you to our extensive listing of nationwide adoption situations. The current listing includes almost 50 expectant mothers. Many of them are interested in open adoption, and all of them are considering adoption, finding the perfect home for their child. They’ve partnered with Lifetime because they know Lifetime’s specialty is supporting and helping birthparents find the match they’ve been hoping for.
If you’d like to be presented to these and other birthmothers, you can fill out a free application to become a Lifetime family. After Lifetime reviews and processes your application, you will be contacted about moving forward in the adoption journey; this usually takes anywhere from three to ten days. During the wait, it is a good idea to learn more about adoption, especially if you are new to the process. A good place to start is with Mardie Caldwell’s book, Called to Adoption: A Christian’s Guide to Answering the Call.
Once you become a Lifetime family, you will be presented to birthparents whose criteria you meet (and who meet your criteria as well) and who are generally in their fifth to seventh month of pregnancy. Should a successful match be made, you may be able to experience the last months of pregnancy alongside the birthmother, be present in the hospital when the baby is born, and take your baby home from the hospital like you have always hoped for.
If this sounds like the newborn adoption you’ve been dreaming of, the best way to get started is by reaching out to a Lifetime adoption professional, either through the free online application, or by calling 1-800-923-6784.
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.”
