In the old days, if you needed to find pregnancy help, you could simply go to the yellow pages, or ask some people at the local hospital for advice, and you’d end up with two or three people you could talk to about it.


Now all you have to do is Google “pregnancy” or “adoption,” and you end up with more pregnancy resources than you know what to do with! If it seems confusing and hard to figure out where to go for help with an adoption or an unplanned pregnancy, you aren’t alone.


Luckily, Lifetime Adoption has some great resources to help you decide what’s best for you, how to take care of yourself during pregnancy, and who you can trust at this vulnerable time in your life.

What that means is that we have a lot of experience, and a great track record in helping women find great, loving families to care for their children.
