We are here to help you through the entire adoption process step by step. Since 1986 Lifetime Adoption has helped thousands of women find the perfect home for their children with domestic adoption. If you are pregnant and considering adoption, or you would like help with unplanned pregnancy options, let us help you! You can also look through some resources to help guide you in your adoption decision here.

Whether you have just found out that you are pregnant or your child has already been born, placing your baby up for adoption may be the right choice for you. Did you know that with open adoption, you can choose the adoptive family for your child and stay in touch in the future?

Our modern adoption services are available nationwide at no cost to you. Adoptive parents pay for legal fees, reasonable pregnancy-related expenses, medical bills not covered by insurance, consulting, and counseling fees. Lifetime can also help you find resources to meet your non-medical needs, such as help with living expenses, school supplies, household items, and maternity clothes. We’ll also help you learn about the adoption legal rights of the birth father.

If you are considering putting a baby up for adoption at birth, know that you’re not alone right now. Lifetime has peer counseling support so that you can speak over the phone with women who have taken the steps to adoption in the past for their child. And, we also have staff working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, here to answer your questions about your pregnancy options, placing a baby for adoption, and counseling. Just text or call us at Lifetime Adoption: 1-800-923-6784.

  1. You can choose the Adoptive Parents for your child.
    There are adoptive families and other families available across the country, of all races, personalities, and backgrounds. You can even talk to or email with adoptive parents that interest you as you decide if they’d be a good fit for your baby. Each family waiting to adopt has been screened and had extensive background checks; they are ready to adopt. If you would prefer for Lifetime to choose a family for you, we can do that.
  1. You can choose the type of contact after the adoption. You may have heard of open, semi-open, and closed adoption. Most adoptions today are open or semi-open, meaning you choose the family and establish a relationship with them that includes contact after adoption. This can be pictures and letters, visits, email, social media, or whatever you are comfortable with. Closed adoption is when there is no information exchanged. This is possible but today it is rare.
  1. You can choose how things go at the hospital. This means you can choose who is in the delivery room, who cuts the cord, if you want to see and spend time with your baby, and more. You are in control of your hospital experience.

If your baby is already born, you still have these choices. Obviously, the hospital birth has already happened but you have choices in how and when to meet the adoptive parents and play an active role in establishing the transition for your baby. Adoption of a child who is already born can happen very quickly, often within just a day or two if you desire. To expedite things, you will want to have a copy of the child’s birth certificate and social security card if available.

You will meet with an attorney to review your legal rights and sign papers for the legal aspect of the adoption. Throughout the process, you have access to help and support from Lifetime, including counseling, maternity clothes, 24-hour support, and much more.

Thank you Tiffany for helping me with such little notice at the last minute. I was very happy meeting with Genesis and Kyle and feel they are the best parents for Lilah. Again thank you so much for everything. You have given me a glimpse of hope in this extremely difficult time.

I want my daughter to be proud of me, so I’m planning to finish college. I’m filling out applications now. I want to be a social worker and help other women who were where I was.
