Adoptive Breastfeeding is Possible

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on July 28, 2014

After last week's blog post we received questions from moms about adoptive breastfeeding. We had mentioned Meredith's adoption story and as an adoptive mom who wanted to nurse her future baby, she shared with us how she decided what was best for her family as they pursued adoption...

“Yes, I did breastfeed Isabella from birth. I started pumping 2 months prior to Isabella's induction date. It was truly AMAZING!

This adoption journey not only led us to our beautiful daughter that we completely adore, it has led me to a best friend. My life would not be complete without Isabella’s birth mother in it!

Sending love to all at Lifetime,
