Question: “I’m 25 weeks pregnant, and I’ve been looking at the adoptive couples on your site. They all look super-friendly, and I like what they say about their parenting styles. But, how can I be sure my baby will be safe with the adoptive couple I pick?”
Answer: Lifetime Adoption Agency requires all of our adoptive families to go through in-depth screening and background checks before they can adopt. A social worker visits their home and checks it out to make sure it’s a safe place for a child. The hopeful adoptive couple must also undergo an interview with the social worker, to make sure they’re fit to be parents.
All of these background checks and screening is how we know that each Lifetime adoptive couple is financially secure, stable, and in a loving marriage. They’ve not only proven their income but also have passed criminal background checks and have had physicals from a doctor to make sure they’re healthy.
The reason why Lifetime goes to such lengths to make sure that each adoptive couple in our program is pre-screened is so that you’re able to rest assured that your baby will be safe with the adoptive couple. The adoptive couple must be screened and questioned in order to adopt. These couples also undergo adoption education so they can understand your need for future communication in an open adoption.
