A Last-Minute Adoption Plan

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on March 29, 2014

Question: I’m not sure if adoption is the right choice for me but I’m due any day now. If I’m in labor can I decide at the last minute that I want to do adoption? Can you work with me from the hospital?

Answer: Lifetime Adoption gets lots of calls from the hospital from women choosing adoption at the last minute. We’ll arrange to have an adoptive family available for you within hours. In most states, the adoptive family will be able to take the baby home from the hospital, avoiding foster care.

Many times, women choosing adoption hope that their baby can start bonding with their adoptive family right away. Lifetime is open for emergencies on all weekends, holidays, and throughout the night. We have families that can travel to hospitals nationwide within a few hours. Here’s Lifetime Adoption’s toll-free line: 1-800-923-6784.
