If you’ve found yourself dealing with an unexpected pregnancy, you might be worried about your future and how you’ll provide for your baby. For some women who aren’t ready at this stage in their life to become a mom, creating a Christian adoption plan is the right the answer.
Did you grow up in a Christian home? Is it necessary for you that your future child is also raised with your similar beliefs and values? Making an adoption plan through Lifetime will allow you to find you a wonderful and caring Christian couple to raise your baby.
Even though it may not feel like it, the baby you are carrying is a miracle. But you don’t have to change your entire life course if a baby wasn’t in your plans right now. Instead, consider blessing a loving and kind couple who might not be able to have a baby by choosing them to be parents through adoption.
Lifetime Adoption: a Christian Adoption Agency
When you choose to use our Christian adoption agency, you know that we’re as committed to the spiritual growth of your child as you are. As your baby grows up, they will hit many physical and mental milestones; however, their spiritual growth is just as important also. You can rest assured knowing that your baby will be raised with the Christian values you want for them.
Some people might say you’re giving away your baby, but you’re actually giving them the chance to do amazing things and have the life you want for them. By placing your child with a caring Christian family with the means to give your baby a wonderful life, you open many doors for them in the years to come.
Most adoption agencies, whether Christian or not, offer three main types of adoption. These are closed, open, and semi-open adoptions. Closed adoptions mean you will not have any contact with the adopting family. Open adoptions have many different meanings as well as levels of openness.
Today, when it comes to open adoptions, the level of openness is entirely up to you, the birth mom. You’re in control of how much or how little contact you have with the adoptive family and your child. You can choose to have a picture and a short update sent to you every year. Some birth moms decide they’d like to visit each year. The amount of contact is up to you. If you think you would like to have contact once a year, then an open adoption can be a great choice.
