Is It Rare to Adopt a Newborn in the U.S.?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on March 17, 2013

At Lifetime Adoption, we often hear the adoption misconception that it's rare to adopt a newborn in the United States.

The truth is, pregnant women across the U.S. are seeking loving adoptive parents to raise their baby from birth. With open adoption, it's common to be able to adopt a newborn. In most newborn adoptions, birth mothers prefer to choose adoptive parents who'll be involved during her baby's first days after birth and who'll take her baby home from the hospital.
