At Lifetime, you can begin looking at waiting parents as early as you’d like. There are many available on our website, or we can send you adoptive family profiles (that have more photos, details, and information about them) by confidential mail. We can begin the informal matching process as early as you’d like. This can include emailing with families and even speaking with them if you’d like!

You are able to officially match with an adoptive family as early as 16 weeks into your pregnancy. In some cases, matches have been made even earlier. At Lifetime, we want to be sure you have the ability to make the choices that you want to make as you choose and design your own custom adoption plan.
