Adoption agencies searching for temporary caregivers.
ABC NEWS | HOUSTON — Adoption agencies are looking for volunteers to cuddle and spend time with newborns.
According to ABC News, adoption agencies across the country are searching for temporary caregivers to nurture and care for newborn babies as they await adoption. Volunteers must be willing to cuddle, hug, and love the babies during their first few weeks of life.
Susan Singer from New York is one of the lucky caretakers who decided to volunteer. The former teacher told ABC News, “My job is to make the baby feel safe and loved 24-7. I hold them all the time. I talk to them. I sing to them. We play music. And I get so much joy and pleasure. I feel so good when I’m with an infant that I hope that it does … something for them, too.”
Before any volunteer can care for a newborn, they are subjected to a detailed background check and home visits.
