Happy adoptive familyHere’s a question that we were just asked, and wanted to share with you today: “Are there peak times of year when adoptions happen more than at other times?”

This is actually one of the most common questions we hear from hopeful adoptive parents! Keep reading to learn the answer.

The truth is, there’s isn’t really such a thing as a peak adoption season. Babies are born in any month, during office hours, on weekends, holidays, or the middle of the night. This is why it’s so important for birth mothers and waiting adoptive families to know Lifetime is here to help 24/7! Every adoption is a sweet miracle–and they are happening all the time.

There are times when we see small surges in calls from women seeking adoptive parents. A couple of examples of small surges include when the seasons change, when the school year ends, or starts it back up. Just last week, five mothers gave birth, and a couple of them started their adoption plans at the last minute.

Since adoptions can happen with lots of notice or just a little time to plan, it’s so important to be prepared before you are chosen for your adoption match!

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.”
