Lifetime Adoption Foundation is dedicated to the development of healthy and fulfilling futures.

All children need a loving family who can provide guidance, opportunity, and the promise of a full life.

Birth mothers deserve the opportunity for a future after adoption in the same way they have ensured a healthy future for their child. We help provide these through:

  • Educational opportunities for birthmothers who have lovingly chosen adoption.
  • Assistance to birthparents in need of basic necessities.
  • Nationwide Outreach education about adoption options.

Additionally, Lifetime Foundation assists with assisting families who are caring for or desire to care for children who would otherwise be in difficult situations or state care. We help through:

  • Adoption grants for families opening their hearts to hard-to-place children.
  • Direct help and donations to families in need such as food, clothing, school supplies and children's items.
  • Advocacy for families who are living in sub-poverty situations.

Lifetime’s Everyday Giving Program...Blessing Birthmothers Through Your Daily Purchases

A birthmother thanks us for our scholarship

"I just wanted to thank you so much for my scholarship award. I am so thankful that I was able to receive the money. After placing my daughter into adoption, I promised myself that I would work hard to get a college education. I am so motivated, and this scholarship reminds me that ALL of my hard work and choices are paying off."

-one of Lifetime Foundation's scholarship recipients

"I know I can obtain a positive place in the world. I also know that by continuing my education, I can set an example for other girls in my situation -- that you can do anything you put your mind to. I know my child will be proud."

How Can We Offer Scholarships & Adoption Grants?

All of our opportunities for birth mothers and adoptive families are funded through tax deductible donations from individuals, estates, and corporations. Unfortunately, our requests for assistance continue to far exceed our ability to provide the necessary funding. Please consider donating today, to help a child find a forever family or to reward the courage of a birthmother.

About Lifetime Adoption Foundation's Founder, Mardie Caldwell

Mardie Caldwell is dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to help those touched by adoption. She has continuously remained faithful to serving her clients compassionately and without judgment. One of her main missions is to equip women with the tools they need to thrive. Mardie does this through her non-profit organization, Lifetime Adoption Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to the development of healthy and fulfilling futures, through scholarships for birthmothers, adoption grants for families opening their hearts to hard-to-place children, and advocacy for families who are living in sub-poverty situations.

Mardie has been recognized for her extensive work with women through being awarded The Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women. This award recognizes women who are working to improve the lives of women and girls through their personal or professional activities.

It has been Mardie’s passion to help women with their educational needs, and to find loving Christian homes for hard-to-place children. Without Mardie’s dedication, many of these children would remain languishing in the foster care system.



"Thank you for offering such a wonderful scholarship. It is wonderful to see an organization that recognizes what birth parents experience and is dedicated to helping them achieve their goals. Finding your website was certainly a blessing when I was searching for options."
-- Ann, a birthmother and scholarship applicant

"I am glad to see that birth mothers are appreciated. I feel that giving my child up for adoption was a very hard thing, but also that a lot of people do not try and understand how hard it is. Thanks for showing birth mothers appreciation!"
