When you choose to make an open adoption plan, you get to pick the perfect adoptive family for your child. Lifetime Adoption works with hopeful adoptive families all across the country. Whether you prefer a family from a quiet, rural town or a family who lives a busy, active city life, you have control over the environment you wish for your child.
We have hopeful adoptive parents with various occupations, educations, religions, and of a variety of ethnicities. All of Lifetime’s adoptive couples are qualified and eager to provide a loving home for your baby. Before they can adopt, they must complete a home study that includes background checks, interviews, and home inspections. That means any family you decide to check out on our website has already passed our screening process to ensure they can provide the best possible environment for your baby.
When looking for the perfect adoptive parents for their baby, some birth mothers want their child raised by parents of the same ethnicity as them. Others want their child raised in the same religion that they were brought up with. If you grew up speaking both English and Spanish, you might be wondering if Lifetime has any bilingual adoptive parents.
Scott and Gene are a well-educated, financially stable bilingual adoptive couple who have a happy, loving home in Indiana. They are a devoted, bicultural couple who speak both English and Spanish. Scott grew up in Illinois on a farm and Gene is Puerto Rican, speaks Spanish and comes from an Army family. While they had different upbringings, education was a priority for both of their families and it’s something Scott and Gene look forward to passing on to your child.
Scott and Gene are so excited to become first-time parents through adoption! Their Indiana home is always full of laughter, music and the smell of Gene’s wonderful cooking. Scott and Gene built their dream home in a lovely Indiana neighborhood with walking and biking trails and several swimming pools. They are open to future contact with you through visits, emails, and photos.
Bilingual adoptive parents Scott and Gene have written this special message to you en español:
¡Hola mamá! Estamos muy agradecidos y emocionados de crecer nuestra familia a través de la adopción. Desafortunadamente, no podemos tener hijos biológicos, pero tenemos mucho amor para compartir. Creemos en el tiempo perfecto de Dios y sentimos la llamada a ser padres. Esperamos poder compartir nuestra pasión por los deportes, la música, la comida y la cultura Hispana con un niño o una niña. Hace dos años que construimos nuestra casa en una vecindad con piscina, parques y caminos para andar en bicicleta. Vivimos en uno de los mejores distritos escolares en el estado de Indiana. Estamos a 30 minutos de museos y un zoológico. Con tres perritos simpáticos, tenemos un hogar muy cariñoso, lleno de amor donde un pequeño pueda crecer, jugar, aprender y ser amado incondicionalmente.
Prometemos querer, cuidar y criar a su bebé en nuestro hogar cariñoso y lleno de amor. Estamos preparados para brindar la mejor educación y experiencias. Ya hemos llenado el cuarto de bebé con libros para que podamos compartir nuestro amor por la lectura. Prometemos apoyar a el niño o la niña mientras hace realidad sus sueños. Vamos a compartir nuestra pasión por los viajes, la aventura y la diversión. Prometemos llenar nuestro hogar de risas, música, familia, amigos y, lo más importante, mucho, mucho amor.
Nosotros estamos orando por usted y su bebé — que usted encuentre la paz en lo que decidas. Enviamos mucho amor.
