My Little Momma's Boy

Hey Veronica,

Can't believe that Killian is going to be three months old this Friday! He has grown so much and has been a complete blessing to our family.

I look forward to every morning when he wakes up because as soon as he sees me, he startes smiling and coo-ing at me. He's such a momma's boy! My other two children have also spoiled Killian rotten!

I just want to say thank you so much for everything all of you ladies have done to make our lives complete.

-Nova-Dawn (and husband Carter)

Ready, Set, Grow!

Diane,
I was good to talk to you today.  I know you all must be enjoying your new building.  I saw it when I was there and it certainly looked like it would be a good location.  Well, I thought I would send you a photo of Daesy Grace.  It is hard to believe that she is almost a year old!  She doesn't look like a preemie anymore!  Thanks for all y'all do!  Oh...please say hello to all the Lifetime staff for us!

In Christ,

Jim and Amber

Our Journey to Jackson

Dear Veronica & Lifetime Family,
God answers prayers in His own time and His own way.  Our journey to Jackson has certainly helped us understand this.  We set out on our adoption journey four years ago.  In the beginning, we worked with other agencies, but God quickly shut those doors and asked us to wait, as He prepared our hearts to adopt.  So we continued to pray and ask Him for direction in leading us to  the child that He intended for us to have. 
 
Last October, we began looking into Lifetime.  God immediately opened doors and hearts and reassured us that our child would be delivered through you.  It was Valentine's Day, with a foot of snow on the ground, when we made our way to the post office to mail out our profiles.  We prayed over them and asked God to use them to touch the heart of the right birth mother.  Little did we realize that within six short months we would be bringing home our son!
 
Craig and Ruth's baby boy JacksonWe can't tell you how blessed we are to have Jackson in our lives.  He completes our family and brings joy into each day.  We feel such an intimate connection with his birth family.  We have the same desires, love and goals for Jackson.  We know that we will have a life-long relationship with them as we continue to communicate.  We are so humbled that they and God entrusted us with Jackson.  Our prayer is to raise him in God's will.
 
Thank you for all the support and encouragement we received from Veronica and through Lifetime.  From hearing the stories of other families through the webinars, to receiving encouraging emails on Mother's Day, Lifetime has been a constant source of support.  We hope that our story will encourage others along the adoption journey. 
 
Feeling Incredibly Blessed,
 
Craig and Ruth

The Miracle of Adoption

Harrison and Rebekah adopted a baby girl, Faith Anne

Dear Lifetime Family,

Words cannot express the thankfulness we have for all you have done for our family! Because of your ministry, we not only have been blessed with a beautiful daughter, but also a deeper understanding of the miracle of Adoption. Amy, your thoughtfulness to our family is such a blessing to us. We're so thankful that God blessed us with your as our Coordinator. We could not have gone through the adoption process without you.

Lifetime will continue to be in our prayers!

With Love,

Harrison and Rebekah

Twice Blessed by Adoption

Dustin and Tami adopted both sons through Lifetime Adoption

We've been reminiscing lately over this last year and all that we've been blessed with in Dane's adoption.  He turned one a couple of weeks ago!  Time sure flies when you're having fun!  I am moved to tears every time I pray over my boys and thank God again for the gift He gave us in them.  Thank you so much for your hand in bringing us our boys and making us a larger family!  We treasure you!

Some updates....Colin is now seven and in second grade, Dane is now one and on the verge of walking. The boys have a special connection and Dane squeals in delight every time Colin walks into the room.  God has recently blessed us with a large home and we can't wait to fill it with more kids!  Dustin is in search of a new job in the computer industry and I am enjoying every moment at home caring for our family.  We currently have another family living with us while their house is being built and the boys are loving having other little boys around to play with!

Our relationship with both our birth moms are flourishing and we so blessed to be a special part of their life.  Colin's birth grandma has come to visit multiple times and we cherish those visits.

Thank you for all you do for each Lifetime family!  You are priceless.

-Tami and Dustin

Our Two Lifetime Boys

Hi Amy,

Both our boys are doing really great!  Ian has adjusted to life in the country very well. He loves being outside as much as the rest of us!  I hope you all are doing well.

Having a Boy

Brady is a joy!

We wanted to share that we just finalized his adoption this morning!

-Lauren & Kenny

Oh, How They Grow!

Hello Diane and Lifetime,
One year ago this week, our adoption was finalized!  It is amazing to us how this little guy has grown in that time.  He wasn't even crawling yet when we finalized and now he is in constant motion, at very high speed. He loves all things sports and tractors.  First words in the morning are "hi" and "tractor".  We can't go anywhere without stopping to look at anything related to sports, particularly football and basketball.  His happy little self brings so much joy to everyone around him, even at the grocery store.  He waves and says "bye" to everyone he sees and they laugh, smile, and wave back, even in the parking lot.  He is just plain awesome!

Every day, we see our little boy growing and maturing.  We catch glimpses of the young man he is becoming and are so proud to be his parents.  We steal away moments to remember him as he is now.  Looking back at pictures and videos remind us of the adorable itty-bitty he was.  Every moment too precious to forget.  

We've been able to visit with his birth family at the zoo and we had a wonderful time.  It was such a treat watching them bond.  Eli's birth mother, birth grandparents, and cousin were there.  She got to hold him for his first carousel ride. He was beside himself and they both smiled the whole time.  Our birth mother told us that Lifetime awarded her a birth mother scholarship for college.  Thank you so much!  She is a wonderful young lady.  She starts college this month.  We are so excited for her!

Thank you for all you do!
Brandon and Jen

A Blessed Lifetime Adoption

Here's a recent photo of the three of us...Alan, Eli and me :)

Can't BELIEVE he will be ONE next week! We're looking forward to working with y'all again for our second Lifetime adoption!

-Rebekah and Alan

School Time

Eli just had his first day of Kindergarten!  Where has the time gone?  My precious baby boy is now in "big kid school."  Praise the Lord, we are all still intact and there were no tears - just smiles.  Now we have to wait five more hours before we get to pick him up!  

Blessings and love to you and Eli's birthparents for making our dreams come true - we thank God for him always...
-Jason and Natalie

Our Open Adoption Story

We were lucky to have been matched with a birth family that fit us like a glove!  We all shared similar interests and passions in life. The birthparents are amazing people who wanted to give their child a wonderful life and trusted us to do so. We are all very happy with our connection. We were fortunate to meet the birthparents during the pregnancy and got to know each other.

When the big day came, we drove up to the hospital and waited patiently for updates from the birth father. When our son was born, the birth father came running out to the waiting room to congratulate us on the new arrival. We all hugged and shared joyous tears. We then got to spend a few days in the hospital in a room right next to the birthparents. We all shared time with the new arrival until it both birthmom and baby were discharged.

Saying goodbye to the birthparents was bitter sweet.  We are so honored that they have given us this incredible gift. Its such a good feeling to have the family we always dreamed about. And we have a lasting bond with a remarkable couple. We think about how fortunate we are now, it makes the waiting seem like no big deal. It's all worth it!

Introducing Our Newest Lifetime "Angel"

Hugs to our Leading Ladies at Lifetime…Jessica, Diane, Amy!

It has been six weeks since baby Xia and I arrived home to an eagerly awaiting Daddy and her three siblings!  Xia is our biggest baby yet weighing in at nearly 10 pounds at birth, and currently around 15 pounds! She is the queen of toothless grins and has a very 'big voice' (which only aids her in getting tons of attention from the rest of us) :)

It was a precarious two weeks before we were cleared to come home, but Lifetime was once again professional and consistently available every time we needed them. Jessica, you did a great job of keeping things rolling and helping us jump all the necessary hoops both states required. Your experience in adoption inspires me, and was incredibly helpful as we navigated this situation. Diane, your straightforward, no nonsense approach has been a godsend! Amy, getting to know you (prior to our call about Xia) has been a delight, and we loved working with you! 

As we now move towards finalization, we look forward to keeping you in our prayers as you step up to the plate every day, helping scores of other families navigate the intricate details of adoption…way to go ladies, we continue to send hopeful couples your way as we spread the word about adoption and building families, one baby at a time!

Thank you Lifetime, for finishing what you start! 

Love,

Michael, Trish, Noah, Kohl, Holli-Yahna, and baby Xia

Our Delightful Daughter

Hello Lifetime!

Here is a recent picture of our Bethany. She is three years old now and continues to grow and change every day. She used to often say, "Would you help me?"  Now she says, "I can help me by myself!"  We enjoy her so much and thank God for the delight she brings to our lives.

Love,

Matt and Teri Jo

Baby girl ElianaForever Ours Through Adoption

Dear Lifetime,

Thank you for everything! We just adore our baby girl, Eliana. She has grown so much since this picture. We would not be parents without you. We have an immense gratitude for each and every one of you!

Thank you,

Regina and Mark

Sensational Siblings

We wanted to send a quick update on Carly and say hello! Carly is eight months old now and is such a blessing to our family. She has grown from a tiny two pounds to 13 pounds. Her favorite people in the world are her three big brothers...her face lights up with smiles when they are in the room, as do theirs. She is almost crawling, loves to tell stories to us, is working on a few teeth, and loves to snuggle in our arms. She took her first trip to Disneyland this summer, as well as her first camping trip. It was a lot of fun.

We are so thankful for all of you and the work you do. We are truly blessed and continue to pray for all of you, the birthparents, and waiting families.

"I (We) thank God upon every remembrance of you."
-Philippians 1:3

-Casey and April

Arlene and Joel's son just turned a year oldBoy Wonder

Hi Veronica,

Can't believe a year has past with our sweet Miles! We just celebrated his first birthday at a local farm and a great time was had by all. It has been full of joy and wonder as we watch our little guy grow and learn. He already says about seven or eight words, understands so many more, dances to songs, and is taking quite a few steps. As much as we cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for him, we are relishing in these awesome moments.
 
Lots of prayers for all the birth and adoptive families!

-Arlene and Joel

The Love of Our Lives

Hi Diane!
I was driving to work this morning, reminiscing about the afternoon you called to let us know we had been chosen. All of the emotions I felt: shock, joy, fear, elation...what an amazing moment of my life. I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you did for us and for Caleb's birth mother to make the whole experience as smooth as possible. He is the love of our lives!

-Heather (and Darren)

Corey and Joann adopted a boy The Son That Brightens Our Day

Hello Veronica and everyone at Lifetime!

Just wanted to share that Emmanuel turned one a couple of weeks ago.  He is a big, beautiful son!  He is very tall for his age...off the charts the doctor says.  We are so happy for this blessing.  He is walking and talking some; he even says "bless you" after someone sneezes, too cute! 

Everything was finalized exactly six months after his birth and it all went well.  We still keep in contact with his birth mom by sending pictures and via texts.  As you can imagine, it is still quite difficult for her so we are so glad that we decided to keep in contact with her. She says it makes this time in her life a bit easier to know that Emmanuel is loved, healthy, and doing awesome.  He and his big sister get a long perfectly and the rest of the family just smothers him with love. We're grateful for all your help.  Until next time, God Bless!

-Corey and Joann

Tara is blessed by open adoptionThe Joy of My Life

Hi Diane and everyone at Lifetime!

God is so good! Here are a few more pictures (some from our newborn photos and a few more recent) of my sweet baby Caden who is the twinkle in my eyes and the joy of my life! I am enjoying every single moment with him. He is such a happy baby and his smile melts my heart!

We finalized his adoption on a few weeks ago, and were surrounded by so much love of our family and friends in great celebration of his amazing life! He is so loved!

I am blessed to be able to share our story to so many and to provide my perspective on our open adoption.  I love and respect his amazing birthparents more each day and thank them and God daily for Caden!

Love,
Tara

Look who turned ONE!

Hi Diane and Lifetime Family,

It's hard to believe that a whole year has already come and gone since our sweet Rosalie came into this world. Our lives were forever changed when we left the hospital.  She truly is the light in our lives! 

Being able to watch her grow and reach every milestone is a dream come true for this mom. She is so close to taking her first steps on her own; she waves and says, "hi"and "hello" and recently started saying, "bye" all special moments that I get to cherish for a lifetime! I'm so very proud of my sweet girl.

We celebrated her birthday with close family members and let her go to town on her very own smash cake! She loved every minute of it! What made the day more special was being back in contact with her birth mother. We skyped on Rosalie's birthday so she could talk to Rosalie and see her eat her smash cake, she was so thankful and I know it meant a lot for her to be a part of that. I am so proud of our relationship. We continue to grow closer in friendship because we know we all want whats best for Rosalie and that is the love of both families. She is so special to so many people!

With love,

Raquel and Ricardo

Baby girl Olivia Grace is an absolute dream!Our Adoption Dream Came True!

Hi Veronica,

We wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all you did to facilitate the placement of Olivia Grace with us!  She is an absolute dream and we feel so blessed to have her.  Things were a little hectic after we brought her home with everyone adjusting to a new routine and a new baby in the house, but we are all moving along now like she has been with us forever.  In fact, we can't ever imagine how we managed without her.  She has enriched our lives beyond our wildest dreams!

Thank you!

Jerrod and Amy's baby boy JustusA Gift from Above

Greetings from Idaho,

We are so glad to be back home with our precious little man! We wanted to tell everyone at Lifetime THANK YOU! You guys never gave up on us and we appreciate all the encouragement and prayers during our adoption journey. It is truly God's perfect timing! As we can look back we know that the Lord was doing far more than bringing us Justus, but He was working on our hearts preparing us for the time we would spend with the birthparents and everything that followed! He is a beautiful cuddly baby and truly a gift from God. We can't thank you enough for all that you do for the adopting families but also the birthparents. We are forever grateful!

Faith, Hope and Love,

Jerrod & Amy (and now 4 boys!)

Traci's dream of adopting a child came true!A Year Goes By Fast

Hi Joan
I wanted to send you and the Lifetime ladies well wishes and to let you know that Maya turned a year old.  I can't believe a year went by so fast and how busy a one-year-old can be!  As a single mom, I have little down time, so I must steal those few moments when I can, normally when Maya is sleep or during my commute home from work.  But, I have never been so happy.  
 
God has really blessed me and my family with the most wonderful little girl and Maya is such a sweetie and a little Silly Billie.  Even the teachers at her daycare remark on how Maya is always smiling and laughing!
 
I wanted to let the Lifetime families who are still waiting to know that God knows exactly when to bless you with the right child as Maya was my second match and I can't imagine life without her.  I'm still in contact with her birthparents and they're doing good.
 
Here's a picture of Maya from her birthday party and another of her clowning around at home...
 
God Blessings to All,

Traci

Can you believe that our baby girl is turning one on Wednesday?  We had  a big first birthday party for her yesterday!  Here's one of the pictures we took just before her party. 

Lifetime helped us make our dreams of parenthood come true and we will forever be grateful!

Blessings to all of you at Lifetime!

Tom and Rhonda were blessed to adopt Evalin With Love, There is Nothing that Cannot be Done

Hi Libby,
We would love to share our adoption story! During our "waiting period", we found the webinars helpful. For me the best ones were from birth moms; we felt their responses to questions were very helpful. On the subject of "dads" in adoption, I am so lucky to be a stay-at-home dad. Evalin is now five,and I thank God every day for this chance to see the world thru a five year old's eyes.

We have an open adoption with Evalin's birth mom. We think she is an amazing girl and are very close with her. Evalin talks with her a few times a month. Evalin is fully aware of the adoption process and understands mommy and daddy, as well as she has a birth mommy. Tom was adopted at four years old and his adoptive dad was the same age Tom was when we adopted Evalin. Also, Rhonda is close in age to what Tom's adoptive mom was. Tell me that's not amazing!

We answer every question Evalin has about adoption so she will never wonder about it. She is a confident, smart, social little girl. With Love there is nothing that cannot be done!

Thanks you so much,
Thomas and Rhonda

Joseph and Brittiny were doubly blessed by adoption!Delightful Duo

Here's a sweet adoption update we received from adoptive couple Joseph and Brittiny, who adopted boy/girl twins:

"We finalized a couple of months ago. Everything is going really well, Joseph and Bryannah are great.

They will be eight months soon and they've gotten so big. Everything is going really great!"

Alan and Rebekah with baby EliA Blessed Adoption Journey

God had His hand in our adoption every step of the way, and Lifetime was wonderful (and will be for our next adoption!) Our journey has been such a blessing, and as we continue to stay in contact with our birthmom, we appreciate more and more what an amazing gift she gave to us in little Eli!

Eli is growing so fast, we can hardly keep up!! Here is a recent pic of all three of us :)

Kindest blessings,
Rebekah & Alan

P.S. You were right about our adoption experience with Lifetime inspiring others...we have been sharing with a couple from our church, and they have chosen to go with Lifetime for the adoption of their first little one!

Bouncing Baby Girl

Hi Libby,

So great to hear from you! Life is grand. Aspen is the most precious thing in my life after Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. She is a happy, playful, joyful baby -- who is now WALKING!

She's also got a very strong personality and she's not at all shy -- she'll wabble up to perfect strangers and start playing with them. (Definitely something I'll have to temper once she starts talking...LOL) And everyone who meets her falls in love...I have people walk up to me in grocery stores, malls, anywhere and comment on some aspect of who she is.

God is so awesome. I have had the most amazing experience with this adoption and thanks to Him have been able to use our story as a testimony for others who are seeking adoption. I share about the process and what to expect, which is often still a mystery to a lot of folks. And when they see me, a single executive, who has adopted I think their optimism rises.

Lifetime was absolutely a blessing in my life -- when people actually do hear the entire story they're amazed (but again, I am picky about who I tell it to because there are people who have waited for years and I want to be sensitive to their yearning).

Thanks and blessings,
Monica

Blessed by Open Adoption

Hi Libby,

It's so great, as always, to hear from you and Lifetime. We would love to be a part of helping other hopeful adoptive parents through their journey. 

We still sing the praises of Lifetime and the support we received and regularly recommend you to anyone who expresses an interest in adopting.

We were indeed able to overcome concerns about an open adoption. Latonia communicated quite a bit with Georgia's birthmom before she was born, drove her to the hospital and was able to be present for Georgia's birth. We also were able to spend the entire time Georgia was in the hospital with her.  The surprise has come from the ongoing contact with Georgia's birthmom.  We exchanged cell phone numbers and text her every month or so with a picture and anecdote about what Georgia's up to. Georgia's birth mother also sends texts for her during milestones, like her birthday, Christmas and Mother's Day. She is very respectful of us as Georgia's parents and we'd love to share with other parents that contact with your child's birthmom doesn't have to be scary.

We would love to assist in helping other parents.  We may even be interested in another adoption!

Best,

Latonia and Brent

Darren and Heather's sweet little three month oldOur Little Man

Good afternoon Michelle!

Life has gotten pretty busy around here. We're happy to say that Caleb is doing wonderfully! He is a bright, sweet, funny little three-month-old who is quickly developing his own personality! Our contact with his birth mother continues to go very well. We even exchanged emails on Mother's Day, sharing the joy with one another. To have her wish me a happy first Mother's Day meant more to me than I can even begin to explain. 

We've already started discussing the timing of what we hope to be adoption number two! We hope you're all doing well, and thank you for continuing to do God's work by blessing both adoptive families and birth families alike.

Sincerely,

Darren and Heather
