Can My Child Go to Private School?

private-school“I’m 22 weeks pregnant and expecting a baby girl. Never thought I’d have to say this, but I think I need to adopt out my baby.

My baby’s father pretty much ghosted me once he found out he got me pregnant. And I have no idea how I’d be able to be a mom! I’m in school full-time, working part-time, and living with my parents. 

I’ve been looking at the adoptive couples on your site. Can I choose a family that will send my child to private school? I really want my daughter to get a good education…that’s something I can’t provide for her.”

It’s important for some women to pick an adoptive family that will enroll their child in a private school.  Many Christian families choose a private Christian or Catholic school for their children. If you’d like to make sure that your child goes to private school, we recommend that you look at adoptive couples who are already raising children and sending them to private school.

Just make sure to tell your Adoption Coordinator at Lifetime what you’re looking for in adoptive family for your baby. At Lifetime, you’re able to get super-specific as you search for just the right adoptive parents for your baby. You can ask to see adoptive family profiles about couples who live in a certain state, who follow the same religion as you, or even with a stay-at-home mom. Lifetime has helped thousands of women thinking about adoption find the best home and education for their child.
 Let us help you, too!

You can take the first step today by asking for adoptive family profiles! Just call or text Lifetime Adoption at 1-800-923-6784. We’ll email you about adoptive families that fit what you’re seeking.
