Birth mothers will find that there remain multiple options for adoption in Dallas, Texas. While COVID-19 has disrupted many aspects of our daily lives, Lifetime Adoption is committed to assisting birth moms in Texas. We’re here 24/7 to provide resources and answers to questions regarding adoption and COVID-19.
Lifetime continues to work with birth mothers and potential adoptive parents through our networks for adoption in north Texas: Plano, Carrollton, Garland, Richardson, and other cities near the Dallas metroplex.
If you’re a birth mother considering adoption in Texas, you can still explore this pregnancy option. And you’re not alone! As a Christian adoption agency, Lifetime works with many birth mothers who need a resource that lays out adoption options for them.
COVID-19 and social distancing protocols have placed limits on travel. However, Christian families in and around Dallas can still find open adoptions within driving distance of Dallas. For example, Dallas to Plano is about a 25-mile trip. Dallas to Garland is about 20 miles. Dallas to Richardson (about 15 miles) and Carrollton (about 22 miles) are also relatively short.
Families in neighboring states like Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana may be within only a few short hours of Dallas. Even those in states like Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri, and Kansas are within a day’s drive of the Dallas area.
Adoption, Pregnancy, and COVID-19
Lifetime Adoptions is committed to facilitating communications between birth mothers and birth parents who have made the loving choice to put a baby up for adoption and adoptive families who want to love and cherish that baby.
Please keep in mind that we work nationwide. Thus, we can be the one point of contact for adoption services and the adoption process itself just about anywhere in the United States. Lifetime maintains a network of resources across the country, many of which are slightly more distant than the local Dallas metro but still relatively close.
For instance, here is the distance from Dallas to:
- Austin (200 miles)
- Houston (250 miles)
- San Antonio (275 miles)
- Oklahoma City (210 miles)
Please give us a call if you have any questions about Lifetime Adoption, Texas adoptions, if you’d like to place your baby for adoption, or if you want additional information about how to adopt a child.
