With Lifetime, you can make the choices to build a personalized adoption for your baby. We’re here to help you every step of the way. One of the most important choices in your adoption plan is going to be picking your baby’s adoptive parents.
We have hopeful adoptive parents from all across the US of various races. All of the couples you see on our site are ready to adopt: they’ve had intense background checks and are excited to become parents through adoption. Each adoptive couple has different occupations, educations, religions, and interests, so make sure to tell your Adoption Coordinator what you’re looking for.
Maybe you’re thinking, “I’d like to find an adoptive couple who lives close to my state,” or “It’s important to me that my baby has financially stable adoptive parents.” Today, we’re sharing about Scott and Bernadette, an active, financially stable couple in Pennsylvania!
They’re very excited to welcome another child into their lives! As a blended family, Scott and Bernadette know what it means to say “love makes a family.” When they met, Bernadette had 2 little boys, who now call Scott “Daddy.”
Scott has been a surgeon for years, starting back when he was in the Army. And Bernadette works as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). Helping others brings a happiness and fulfillment to Scott and Bernadette’s lives, which is why working in the medical field is so rewarding for them.
Scott and Bernadette live in a historic neighborhood near Philadelphia. Their home is a 3 bedroom townhouse with 4 stories, a library (also our music room!), and a rooftop garden deck. There’s a room ready to become the nursery and Scott and Bernadette have already started collecting things to decorate in a forest animal theme. Scott and Bernadette are open to future contact with you through photos, letters, and visits.
Scott and Bernadette created this cute video to introduce themselves and share more about what they have to offer your child!
