How Do I Know My Baby Will Be Safe?

Adoptive family and children on the beach in FloridaWe know that you want to pick the perfect adoptive family for your baby. When you’re looking at adoptive parent profiles, they’ll probably all say things that you like, and appear to be nice and friendly.

But, as one woman says it, “how do I know these couples are going to be good parents? How can I know for sure whether my baby will be safe?”

Keep reading to get insider info about the background checks and intensive screening that everyone has to get in order to adopt!

 

How Do the Adoptive Families Get Evaluated?

An adoption professional will screen and evaluate the hopeful adoptive couple. In-depth screenings and background checks are performed, and the couple will have a social worker visit them at home. The social worker is there to check out whether their house is a safe place for a baby or child. The adoptive couple is interviewed by the social worker, who asks questions to make sure they’re qualified and ready to be parents.

The adoptive couple has to pass criminal background checks, prove their income through payroll stubs or tax records, and get physicals to make sure they’re healthy.

Here’s a quick list of what’s included in the evaluation process to adopt a child:

  • Background checks
  • Multiple interviews with each adopting person
  • Medical history
  • Questions about the stability of a couple’s relationship, their family, and discipline practices
  • Personal references
  • Criminal record, child abuse, and FBI clearances
  • Physical exams
  • Income tax records
  • A tour of their home and surroundings

All of this combined is how Lifetime knows that each adoptive couple has good morals, is financially secure, and in a stable marriage. Before they can adopt, Lifetime adoptive couples are required to pass an intense screening process. As you can tell, you can be sure your baby is going to a safe and loving home with Lifetime!

And it doesn’t stop at placement. After your baby goes home with the adoptive family, the social worker and agency will conduct follow-up interviews and visits. They’ll ensure that your child continues to flourish. A regular part of every Lifetime adoption is phone conversations, doctor’s reports, updates, and pictures.

Do you have questions about adoption? Lifetime is available 24/7; you can text or call us at 1-800-923-6784.
