What Would You Ask an Adoptive Parent?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on July 18, 2018

Every stage of hoping-to-adopt comes with many questions, and sometimes those questions are best answered by people who have recently walked where you are today.

What would you most want to ask another Lifetime family? If you sat down with three adoptive moms, what would you want to talk about?

Next Thursday, Lifetime is hosting a free webinar with a panel of three Lifetime adoptive parents. They're eager to answer your questions, as someone hoping to adopt. Ally, Rachel, and Tequila will speak from their families' personal experiences through adoption. This is a great opportunity for any future adoptive parent!
