We're excited to announce that Lifetime's blog has just been awarded in Healthline's Best Adoption Blogs of 2019! It's an honor to be among this list of other awesome adoption blogs. Lifetime's adoption blog was selected from the thousands of adoption blogs out there using search and social metrics.
Each year, Healthline compiles a list of the best adoption blogs, and highlights bloggers who best educate and inspire couples thinking about adoption. Many of the adoption bloggers named in their list are adoptive parents themselves and seek to share what they’ve learned during their path to parenthood with others.
