We recently hosted an information-packed webinar, all about the choices modern adoption offers women and families considering adoption. Anyone thinking about adoption should be aware of what adoption today looks like for adoptive families and birth parents. Discover how you can watch this webinar on modern adoption by reading on!
Modern adoption comes with many options for all involved, whether it’s a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy, or difficulty providing for a child, or a family hoping to grow with the addition of a child. Today’s adoption stories look a lot different than stories from decades ago. The modern child adoption process has changed the way birth parents and hopeful adoptive families pursue adoption, and create a personal plan in the best interest of the child.
In this webinar, we review the basics of what modern adoption means for women choosing adoption for a child, and for those growing their family through adoption. Discover the benefits of open adoption, for all involved, as well as common adoption myths dispelled and a fresh perspective on the choices birth parents and adoptive families have through the child adoption process. This is a helpful webinar for adoptive parents in any stage of adoption planning!

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.”
