Your Baby, Your Choice

A pregnant Hispanic woman walks while talking on speakerphoneDid you know that a woman considering adoption for her baby is in control of the adoption process? You’re in control over exactly how your adoption experience goes down. Here, we’ll talk about just a few of the choices you can make during the adoption process.
 

Type of Adoption

You can take as much time as you need to when you’re making an adoption plan. Along the way, you’ll determine if adoption is best for you and your baby, what kind of relationship you’d like to have with the adoptive family, what your hospital stay might look like, and other details that’ll make your adoption experience just how you want it to be. The steps you take to make an adoption plan for your baby will be customized according to your wishes.
 

Adoptive Parents

One of the best parts about open adoption is that you can decide who will be your baby’s adoptive parents, and choose how much future contact you’d like to have with them. Lifetime Adoption Agency works with adoptive couples across the US, so you’ll have a wide variety to choose from. There are adoptive couples of various backgrounds, faiths, and ethnicities. You can get tips on how to pick the perfect parents for your baby here.
 

Your Adoption Coordinator

During your adoption process, you’ll have a dedicated Adoption Coordinator who will work one-on-one with you. She’s here to help you navigate throughout your steps for adoption. If you ever have questions or concerns, your Adoption Coordinator is always just a phone call or text away at 1-800-923-6784.
 

It’s Never Too Late to Choose Adoption

The speed at which you work through each step of the adoption process is up to you. Your pregnancy will last around nine months, but that doesn’t mean your adoption process needs to. You can choose to make an adoption plan as soon as you find out you’re pregnant, after you have your baby, or any time in between. Some women decide to give parenting a try at first, and then later decide on adoption. It’s never too late to choose adoption.
 
You’re in the driver’s seat of your adoption plan, so you can work as slowly or as quickly as you’d like to. Some women take weeks or even months to find the right adoptive family. Others select one after their first day of searching.
 

Making Changes to Your Plan

Remember, this is your baby and your choice, which means you can change your mind. If after talking on the phone, you find out that the adoptive family isn’t quite who you hoped they were, you can look at others. If later on, you decide that you’d like more or less contact with the adoptive family, you can change that too.

How to Prepare for Your First Meeting With the Adoptive Parents

Pregnant woman talking on the phone at a parkYou’ve put a lot of time and effort put into choosing the perfect family for your baby. You’ve read profile after profile until you finally found “the one.” It can be a big relief to have that part of your adoption planning behind you.
 
That is until you realize now it’s time to meet them. If the thought of meeting them has you feeling stressed, you’re not alone. The adoptive couple is very nervous too because they want to make a good first impression.
 
Your Adoption Coordinator at Lifetime will help you get ready for that first meeting or phone call with an adoptive couple. She can also join the phone call, too, to help you begin the conversation and move it along.
 

Here are three helpful tips that’ll have you feeling more prepared for your first meeting with the adoptive couple:

Be Natural

Since you’ll need to create a connection with your baby’s potential adoptive parents, just be yourself. They’re just as nervous as you. The adoptive couple isn’t there to judge you, they want to get to know you and to show you that they’re dependable.
 
The more calm and open-minded you can be, the better. This will set a good tone as you get to know each other. You’re seeking a genuine connection because this will be a lifelong relationship.
 

Choose a Neutral Location

Try to meet in a neutral setting if possible, one where you’ll feel comfortable. You might choose to meet in a spot such as your favorite restaurant or shop. We recommend that you don’t meet up in the adoptive couple’s home or your home because it can create pressure. If you don’t live close enough to the adoptive couple to meet, we recommend talking on the phone for your first meeting.
 
If it’s hard to break the ice or the conversation goes off course, a public setting will give you more to talk about. Small talk can help make everyone comfortable and lead to a more meaningful discussion.
 

Ask Questions

You’re in charge of this meeting, so feel free to ask as many questions as you want. After looking at their profile, you can try to get a better feel for who they are and what they have to offer. Use the information in their profile to dig a little deeper. When you’re getting ready for the meeting, we recommend writing down the questions you’d like to ask. Then, you can add more questions as you think of them.
 
The most important thing to remember as you prepare for this first meeting is that it’s up to you. If you don’t feel comfortable with the adoptive couple, you don’t have to choose them. Adoption isn’t easy, and the hardest part can be making sure you’re choosing the right adoptive family for your baby. So, don’t stress, take your time, and remember that you are in control.

How Do I Find Just the Right Parents for My Baby?

the right parents for my baby?If you’re thinking about adoption for your baby, we understand that you might be worried about finding the perfect adoptive family. Anyone who decides adoption is the right choice wants to make sure that their child has the best life. How can you make sure that your baby receives just that?

Lifetime has developed a process of supporting women as they search for the perfect families for their babies. When you contact us for the first time, you’ll get your own individual Adoption Coordinator. She’ll help you to make sure your adoption goes just the way you want it to. That includes deciding on the perfect adoptive family for your baby. At this point, you may already know the type of adoption profiles you’re interested in looking at. Your Adoption Coordinator will help you to narrow down your preferences more by asking you questions like:

Is the location of the adoptive couple important to you?

Do you picture your baby growing up in an urban setting, or have you always dreamed of living on a farm in the Midwest? As a nationwide, full-service adoption agency, Lifetime works with families across the US. This gives you lots of choices as you consider where your child will live.

Do you want your child to have brothers or sisters?

Some women wish to place their baby with a couple who can’t conceive. Others feel that it’s important for a child to grow up with siblings. So, they look only at adoptive families who already have kids.

Does it matter to you if your child looks like his or her adoptive parents?

Some women hope to choose an adoptive family who shares their own culture and ethnicity. Fortunately, Lifetime has hopeful adoptive families of many races and backgrounds.

What values are important to you?

Are you hoping for a couple whose religious beliefs match your own? Or maybe there other values that are important to you as well, like work ethic or political beliefs.

You can explore some of the adoption profiles of families we work with, by viewing our pages of waiting adoptive families.

Speak with an Adoption Coordinator confidentially and with no obligation, by calling 1-800-923-6784. Or, send us a message.
