If you are a gay or lesbian couple or individual hoping to adopt, you may have heard some serious myths about LGBT adoption. At LifeLong Adoptions, we believe that every individual and couple should have the chance at infant adoption, and want to put those myths in the trash.
Myth: The only acceptable home for a child is one with a mother and father who are married to each other.
Friday April 19, Charles and Wesley were scheduled for their adoption finalization conducted by David Cole's Law Firm. The guys were very well accepted into the court room with people congratulating them on their beautiful little boy named Tanner Jacob, that will reside back in Round Rock, Texas. The judge signed off on the motion moving the name to Tanner Jacob and removing the birthmom's name from the birth certificate.
There’s a lot to expect when you’re expecting - especially when it involves an adoption! While hundreds of adoption websites, blogs and forums articulate the ins and outs, ups and downs of the adoption process, you never really know what to expect until you’re experiencing it in real time. LifeLong Adoptions wants to help each of its birthmothers by informed them as much as possible from the get-go. If you are pregnant and considering adoption, here are some things to expect during the journey.
Dear future parent,
You have successfully discovered what we feel is the best resource for starting your family. There are many roads available for making the dream of a family come true. However, some of those roads are unpaved (adoption through the state is hoop after hoop with unpredictable results), some have outlandish tolls (agencies charge exorbitant amounts of money) , and many have dead ends (they take your money, but all you do is wait, sometimes forever). Our experience with Lifelong was like taking the Autobahn. Smooth, fast, and efficient. We got what we wanted, and it couldn't have been easier.
Whether you are experiencing infertility, are a same sex couple, or just wish to expand your family through infant adoption, there are many reasons why adoption might be the best option for you. However, there may also be reasons why adoption might not be the best option.
Adoption is a permanent proposition that requires a lifelong commitment by everyone involved. For this reason, it is imperative that you explore your own reasons for wanting to adopt, and not only the question of whether adoption is right for you, but also if you are right for adoption.
Before you decide to adopt, be sure that you are able and ready to give this child the love and attention that he or she deserves. In the end, adoption can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life! Consider the following aspects of your life before making the decision to adopt.
