From a Birth Mother

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on February 20, 2013

I just want to say Thank You to all of you at Lifetime for all the help you gave me.

I called a local agency here is Southern California and they told me they didn't have anyone to adopt black babies. I didn’t know what to say. I mean, I have put so much thought into this and then to hear that made me question every decision I had made.

But, they gave me Lifetime’s number. And you were my next call.

I was scared to call. Scared to hear the same thing. But you sent me so many families that I could pick. I was shocked and so happy to know that someone did want my baby, no matter the color.

Now, the adoption is done, I’m back in school, and I should graduate with my AA this spring. Thank you doesn't seem like enough. But thank you for all you did for me and my baby. I honestly can say I don’t know what would have happened without Lifetime.
