How the Adoption Process Works at Lifetime Adoption

The adoption process at Lifetime Adoption Agency includes peer support. These are conversations with former clients who made the loving choice of adoption. We also have a number if resources including blogs and videos to help pregnant women considering adoption.

An important element of the process includes the creation of an adoption plan. There are many considerations someone looking into adoption must navigate. An adoption plan is a thoughtful roadmap that helps you navigate your unique adoption situation.

You may choose to focus on finding an adoptive family. We have so many families waiting to adopt a child. You can review prospective adoptive parents from across the country who have all gone through background checks and are ready to adopt. Your coordinator will help you narrow down your choices based on your preferences.

You may want to discuss how much, if any, contact you would like to have with your baby and your baby’s new family. This is one of the wonderful things about open adoption. This agreement with the adopting family will allow you to stay a part of your child’s life.

Finally, you can also decide what happens at the hospital. Choose who will be in the delivery room and how much time you want to spend with the newborn after delivery.

It’s all up to you! These are just a few of the considerations of the adoption planning process.

Every woman has questions about the adoption process, including how it works and what are the steps to adoption. Lifetime Adoption has been working with people considering adoption since 1986. We are here to help you navigate the process, develop an adoption plan, and review families for consideration.
