We often get asked, “How do I give my child up for adoption?” by moms who want more for their child than they can provide. Or, life just isn’t working out how they planned, and they’d like their child to be in a stable, two-parent family. No matter your reason for thinking about adoption for your child, Lifetime is here to give you caring, supportive help.
Lifetime Adoption Agency’s adoption specialists have worked with many women who are unsure about how the adoption process works. We will provide you support and help while you learn about adoption and if it’s the right choice for your child. There is never a cost to you, and our adoption specialists will make sure that you fully understand the steps to adoption and the outcomes.
Thinking of Adoption for Your Child?
Even though most of Lifetime’s adoptions are newborns and infants, we have adoptive parents hoping to adopt a toddler, preschooler, or a child up to seven. If you want to make an adoption plan and your child is older than seven, we will provide you with referrals to resources in your area. You could also think about a temporary guardianship, a kinship adoption, or contact social services.
Whether you’re having money issues, can’t parent another child, or want to give your child more than you can offer right now, adoption can be a loving, positive choice. No matter what your situation is, know that you’re not alone. With open adoption, you have tons of options.
Open Adoption Gives You Choices
Lifetime has supported thousands of women who have been in your shoes. Women of all racial backgrounds, all types of situations, and of all ages have made an adoption plan through Lifetime. We can help you, too! Choosing adoption can be one of the most thoughtful choices you can make for your child. With Lifetime Adoption, you’re in the driver’s seat. You make the choices that affect your child’s future. You can choose:
- The family who will adopt your child
- To remain in contact in the future
- To keep everything confidential.
- Counseling from a professional, third-party therapist
- To apply for a college scholarship through the Lifetime Foundation.
- How your child’s transition to his or her adoptive family happens
We will help you as you select adoptive parents for your child, decide on future contact, and to sort things out with your child’s father’s legal adoption rights.
