Lifetime Adoption's billboard on US-19If you live in the New Port Richey area, you might have seen Lifetime Adoption’s billboard. To spread the word about our adoption services, we have had a billboard installed on US-19. This means our message about free adoption help will reach thousands of drivers every day! We want people to know that there is help available. Adoption is always an option. So if you’re wondering, “How does adoption work?” or “Is there an adoption agency in Pasco County?”, know that we can help! We’re an adoption agency in Pasco County and would like to learn more about you, your needs, and your dreams as you think about adoption for your baby or child.
 
For expectant moms in the New Port Richey area (and surrounding cities), we’re happy to welcome you into our office to learn more about adoption. Or, we can meet up at another location.

How Does Adoption Work?

With open adoption, you make the choices. You can choose your baby’s adoptive parents, pick what type of contact you want after the adoption, and even decide how things go at the hospital. If you need help with pregnancy expenses, let us know. Besides getting help with your expenses, you can receive maternity clothes, counseling, toiletries, and more. You can call and learn more without any pressure or obligation. Your coordinator will walk you through every step of the way and is always available to you by phone or text.
 
We can meet with you in person or send you information so you can start the basic paperwork and view waiting families. You’re able to speak with the adoptive family so you can get to know them before making your decision. When you have your baby, the family will travel to your town. This allows your baby will be discharged from the hospital directly to the adoptive parents you chose. A day or two later, you will meet with an attorney and sign the final adoption papers. There is no cost to you at all.
 
If you’re already parenting a child, the adoption process is similar. You will come together with the family you have chosen along with your child. Lifetime’s adoption coordinators are here to will create a transition plan that you feel comfortable with.
 

Hoping to Adopt?

If you want to adopt a baby, Lifetime has a wide variety of options for you. Our adoption agency in New Port Richey can help any family with a Florida home study, which is required by law before you can adopt. We are not providing home study services for international adoption currently. However, a home study from Lifetime Adoption is appropriate for any domestic adoption or intervention. To learn more about our home study services, call 727-493-0933, and ask to speak with our Director, Linda.
 
Lifetime Adoption can also assist parents across the country adopt from Florida and other states. Our free application to adopt is available 24 hours a day online. We have served Florida adoptive parents (and those across the country) to build their families through a Lifetime Adoption. We would love to meet with you too if you are here in Florida! You can call 727-493-0933 for more information or just stop by our office and meet our friendly staff.
