Answer: Yes! Lifetime Adoption has loving adoptive families ready and able to adopt a premature baby. We’re here 24/7 to help you find out more about choosing adoption for your baby.

We have a variety of adoptive families of different races and backgrounds living all over the U.S. for you to choose from. All of our hopeful families have gone through background checks and excited to become parents through adoption.

You’re in control of your adoption plan, and have lots of choices. In addition to choosing your baby’s adoptive family, you can also pick how much you want to stay in touch with them after the adoption happens. Some birth mothers decide they’d like to get updates and photos of their child emailed to them, and others pick to have visits in person once or twice a year. Staying in touch through sites like Facebook and Instagram are also good options.  

The adoptive family you choose may be able to help you with your medical and living expenses. Lifetime is here to help you as you make the adoption decision. Just give us a call at 1-800-923-6784 to get started today.
