“My husband and I have just started researching infant adoption. We’d love to adopt twins! On average, how long does it take to adopt twins through Lifetime Adoption?”
Twin adoptions happen from time to time at Lifetime; we might have two to three newborn twin adoptions out of 100 adoptions in our agency each year.
Lifetime recommends remaining open with your adoption preferences. That’s because if you’re only open to adopting twin babies, it’ll increase your wait time. It might even stand in the way of successfully adopting! Most of our adoptive couples wait from six to 16 months to adopt, and those couples are open to both single baby and twin adoptions.
When thinking about the average time you’ll be waiting to be chosen by a birth mother for a match, there are many factors to keep in mind.
So that we can learn more about you and your adoption hopes, you can take the first step today by completing our online application. It’s free to apply and doesn’t obligate you to anything.
Once you tell us your specific adoption goals, we’ll be able to share with you if you’d be successful in joining Lifetime for your adoption. Then, we can give you information about what to expect and the average wait time.
Lifetime encourages all adoptive families to sit down and talk about what truly matters versus what you feel right now would be best. The process of adopting is unique because it joins two parties together to begin a new story. We don’t want you to feel pressured into taking a particular adoption opportunity, but we also wouldn’t want hopeful adoptive parents to miss out on what could be an amazing adoption! So take some time and write down any questions. We look forward to learning more about you when you apply!
