What’s the Next Step?
Find yourself asking, “I’m pregnant, now what?”
At Lifetime, our focus is on the children and the birth parents. We strive to help guide and support all birth parents seeking adoption as they make the decision as to who will love and care for their children. Click here to view and request a free adoption planning kit.
Taking the first step is the hardest part of any decision you make. Adoption is no different. This video shows you how to take the first step in the adoption process:
You can review the adoptive family profiles online and select the three families you feel you might want to speak to. We will be able to give you more details about these families and arrange for you to call them. Not sure how to choose just the right ones? Check out our page How to Find Adoptive Parents
All of our adoptive parents have toll-free numbers, allowing you to call them without charge. You might find one pre-screened waiting family that just stands out and you only want to speak to them. The choice is yours. Some of our families may be unavailable because another birth mother has already matched with them, so we encourage you to select more than one.
We will send you some forms to fill out. You need to return them to us with proof of pregnancy (or you can fax us a proof of pregnancy). If you’d like to get started with adoption process right now, click here for these forms.
If you would like counseling at this time, please call our office with a time that would be convenient for you. Counseling is available with a counselor in your area, or also on the phone if you prefer.
When you are ready, you may speak with any of the adoptive families in which you are interested and, if you would, you may meet them in person. We encourage you to take a friend, mother, or birth father if you’d like to your meeting. If you both decide to meet at a public restaurant, the adoptive family can pick you up if you like and bring you back after you’ve spent some time together at the restaurant.
Once you’ve decided on a family, call our office and let us know.
We’ll walk you through the process every step of the way. We will also be there afterward if you need additional support. We are only a phone call or text away, day or night! Call or text us at 1.800.923.6784
