Lifetime Adoption is Here for You During COVID-19

by | Mar 20, 2020 | Adoptive Families Blog

LifetimeLogo_Adop-no-llcAs the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. continues to rise, Lifetime Adoption remains 100% available for birth parents, hopeful adoptive parents, and anyone with questions about adoption. We care about you and are here for you!

Some adoptive parents have come to us with questions and concerns about how the outbreak could affect their adoptions. If you’re wondering if now is a good time to adopt and how COVID-19 affects adoption plans, we encourage to read “Infant Adoption During Times of Uncertainty.”

With the announcement of a national public health emergency and the closure of schools, Lifetime has established new procedures to continue serving you, effective immediately.  We are following CDC advice to protect the staff at Lifetime Adoption, as well as our birth families, children, adoptive parents, and local communities.  

We continue to be available with 24-hour help for birth parents and Lifetime’s matched adoptive families. We also maintain regular availability during office hours, by phone nationwide, for current adoptive parents in-waiting, as well as for anyone wanting to learn more about adoption. We will continue to do our best to update you as new information is available.

Feedback on Lifetime Adoption’s Availability During COVID-19

Says one of Lifetime Adoption’s adoptive-parents-in-waiting, “First, I want to thank you and your co-workers at Lifetime for all that you are doing to maintain a sense of normalcy and calm amidst all of the uncertainty. I truly cannot express how much it means to know that Lifetime is prepared to handle any situation even when your personal circumstances are in a state of change. We are truly blessed to have such amazing people with us on this adoption journey. 

Next, I wanted to let you know that we participated in yesterday’s webinar. Again, thank you! Heather and Libby did a remarkable job. I cannot speak for others, but they certainly put me at ease. If there is any organization that will keep moving forward and continue to provide support and encouragement during these challenging times, it will be Lifetime.”

Vince and Dana recently welcomed a newborn baby girl into their home through a Lifetime adoption. They also adopted their five-year-old daughter through us when she was born! Both girls are pictured here.

Lifetime adoptive mother Dana sent us this sweet update, “Even with all of the recent chaos of COVID-19, we are so thankful for Lifetime…their love and support helped us connect with the beautiful women who gave life to our 2 stunning little girls (now 5 years old and 3 weeks old)!!!”
