Dear Lifetime Adoption staff,
 
Words cannot express how thankful we are for the gift you gave us of our amazing son! Cooper is such a sweetheart, and we are so blessed to be his parents! Thank you for the support and encouragement you provided us during the wait.
 
Chrissy, we really appreciate how quickly you would respond to any questions and the support you gave us emotionally! We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for being such an important piece of one of the best things to ever happen to us!
 
Natalie, thank you for the support and encouragement you gave us during our wait. We will be forever grateful for all you did!
 
Love,
Tommy and Kaycee

We hope that seeing our photos blesses someone else and helps them hold onto the faith.

The boys are doing great; they’re just about to finish Kindergarten and looking forward to the summer. They are making great progress, doing well in school and growing like weeds!
 
Thanks for all of your help in this crazy journey!”
 


Our Adoption Dream Came True!


We truly can’t believe he’s here…it still feels like a dream! 🙂 Here’s a photo of his big sister admiring him proudly.

We Became a Forever Family


Hi Linda,
 
We finalized Addie’s adoption last month! It was such a great visit and a really great hearing. The judge was so nice and spoke some really kind and encouraging words to us. We were also able to visit with Addie’s birth mother and met Addie’s birth father and his family. It was simply awesome. We are so blessed!
 
Thank you and your entire team so much for all your help and support along the way! God has used y’all in incredible ways and we are so, so, so thankful!
 
Much love,
Chris and Stacey

Lifetime Made Our Dreams a Reality


Wow! We cannot believe that Maddox will be three weeks old on Wednesday. Time is flying by! It seems like he was just born yesterday.
 
We still cannot thank you all enough for making our dreams become a reality! Can’t stop looking at him. I have to pinch myself because I cannot believe he is real.
 
Love,
Kevin and Tequila

 


My First Mother’s Day was Truly Extraordinary!


Buongiorno (Good morning) Linda,

Arrivederci (goodbye),

We all just wanted to say hello and thank you again.  Lifetime is doing a great job at doing God’s work by working according to His purpose to create families.

Fun at One


 
Good afternoon! Just had someone reach out and ask me how my experience with Lifetime was and I am so happy to tell them about all of our positive experiences!
 
It made me realize I haven’t sent an update in a while! Hope all is well with everyone at Lifetime. Our little Camden just turned one, and we’re about to celebrate one year with him! It’s been an amazing month and he’s growing so fast.
 
-John and Jennifer

Worth the Wait


 
Thank you Maurice and Kim, for this encouraging update!
 
“We hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We did a remake of a picture we took back in 2014 when we started our adoption journey!”
 
We can’t wait to see little Winston grow up in your loving home! Happy New Year!

Our Christmas Blessing, a Year Later!

At this time last year, we brought home our wonderful blessing of Colton!
 
You all were so wonderful to work with the entire journey. Our road wasn’t easy, but as you always reassured us it would all make perfect sense and it is crystal clear now.
 
Colton turned a year old this month! He was walking at nine months, is a great eater and sleeper and has the most gorgeous chocolate brown eyes that everyone comments on. He truly is a very sweet laid back little boy, but definitely an energetic boy that likes to check out everything!
 
We’re so thankful to have contacted you all to start our adoption journey. Though we struggled with a failed adoption – we learned, prayed and pulled ourselves together to carry on. With Colton coming as our Christmas gift last year, literally in a blink our family was complete.
 
Thank you all for what you do every day for all these babies and waiting families!
 
-Mark and Tiffany

Happy Baby

“We’re so happy. Ahava is thriving. She wakes up laughing and smiling every morning.
 
She’s beginning to make cooing sounds. Bobby and I are so tickled with everything she does.”
 
We love these updates, Bobby & Tachaundra! Can’t wait to see how she grows up!

What a Beautiful Blessing

We finalized Lela’s adoption and she’s officially a member of our family! Everything is going very well. Lela is growing fast and learning new skills every day.
 
We have been very busy with doctor appointments and testing due to her blindness but finally have an official diagnosis so we are able to step back to just maintenance visits. We are busy with therapies every week and are enjoying every minute with her.
 
Our relationship with her first family is fantastic and we are looking forward to seeing them again next week. We had three wonderful visits with them when they were in town visiting family.
 
Our older children are enjoying having a tiny little sister to love on and we got right back into the swing of raising an infant without any difficulty. It is definitely a new experience to juggle three teens, a tween, and a toddler, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything!
 
We are so in love and so grateful for Lifetime’s help in bringing our beautiful blessing to our family!
 
-Brent and Carrie

Baby’s First Thanksgiving

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
 
Bobby and Tachaundra gave us this little update on their daughter, Ahava:
 
“This Thanksgiving we are so very thankful for Ahava, her birth mother, and God leading us to Lifetime Adoption. Happy Thanksgiving!”
 
It was Ahava’s first Thanksgiving. Look at that big, adorable grin!

Oh How They Grow

Good morning Linda!
 
Here’s a recent photo of Keegan so you can see how much this boy has grown!
 
He’s doing so great and he has such a fun personality. We absolutely love this age – nearly 18 months already!
 
-John and Christine
 
 
 


bobby_chaun2

Isn’t She Lovely

Hello Linda!
 
Ahava is growing so fast. We’re still in awe at how God found the baby that is meant especially for us. At times, I suddenly get a wave of gratefulness when I look at her.
 
Diaper changes and feedings are such a joy because we’ve waited so long to do what some think is mundane or routine.
 
Grandma, great grandma, aunts and cousins can’t seem to get enough of her!
 
-Bobby and Tachaundra

Lil Reindeer Reporting for Duty

Counting down until his first Christmas!
 
This little guy is already eight months old. Adoptive parents Silas and Dawn share, “Here’s a photo of Reindeer Talon reporting for duty. We love him so much. He is so fun!”
 
They’ve been blessed with such a happy boy. Thank you for the update; we can’t wait to see how he grows!

She’s Our Gift From God

It is so wonderful to watch this little girl grow up! Thank you Greg and Tina for another update. We are so excited to see her in the next stages!
 
Greg and Tina share, “Brooklyn is six months old now! Her adoption finalization will be next week…praise the Lord!
 
This little girl is so amazing. Truly our gift from God!”

Thanks again!

Thank You, Lifetime, for All Your Guidance!

We want to thank you for all your guidance and care during this transition time in our lives. Just when we thought an adoption wasn’t going to happen before we moved, it happened!
 
Our daughter, Ahava Grace, was born on Tachaundra’s birthday. How awesome is that?! She is the sweetest. We love her so much. Her birth mother will always hold a special place our hearts.
 
-Bobby and Tachaundra

What a Happy Boy!

We got a visit from this little guy this week! SO CUTE!

It was so nice to visit with new adoptive parents, Silas and Dawn and their nearly six-month-old baby boy. (He already has 2 teeth!) Such a happy boy!

Such a Cutie

Mia is getting so big. She is now on the charts with the rest of the 1-month-olds.

We had a welcome shower for her where she was showered with love. She appeared in some hospital pictures on her discharge day, and we’ve been the paparazzi at home. Her next official shoot is at three months; time is flying! She is such a cutie!

A Gift from Above

We can believe it’s been almost 3 months since we brought little Aviya home. Her personality is really starting to shine now. She laughs and coos all the time! She loves bathtime and having us read to her.

We recently had a homecoming shower and the love and support from our friends and family was amazing. Since Yava is a veterinarian, the party planning committee themed the party in Doc McStuffins. We asked for African American-themed books and especially those related to adoption. We were showered with baby gifts, advice, and books!

Aviya started daycare this month too. Mommy cried and she and Daddy giggled!

We are eternally grateful to Lifetime and her birth mother for blessing our lives so abundantly.

-Jason and Yava

Our Dream Come True (times ten)!

Hi Linda,

Brooklyn is so amazing! She is very social and alert and smiley and loves everyone. She fits into our family so perfectly and everyone tells us that she got the best family ever! Great fit for her too!

She is my focus & my everything… and is so loved! I still watch her sleep at times and can’t believe she is finally here. My dreams come true times ten! She sleeps through the night now! Total peach.

Smiles,
Tina (and Greg)


kevin_jess5

Our Handsome and Happy Boy

Hi Linda and Deena,

We wanted to reach out to you both to share how Weston is doing. Can’t believe how much Weston has grown in eight months, he’s getting so big! He already has six teeth in. Everywhere we go people stop us to comment on what a handsome, happy and well behaved baby he is.

He is a good eater. He loves fruits and vegetables especially avocado, asparagus, and broccoli. He is even starting to self-feed some food.

We are going for a long weekend to visit his birth mother and her family in two weeks. Her mom has actually invited us to stay with her and her husband instead of staying at a hotel. We’re going to go with Weston’s birth mom and her daughters to the beach during this visit!

-Kevin and Jess


Thank You Lifetime for Bringing Us Together!

pete_jody

Lorenzo’s adoption finalization was just two days after his third birthday. So that was pretty amazing! Jody’s parents were there and it went very quick.

We’ve made great strides with Lorenzo. For a while, I think he was struggling with adjusting due to learning right and wrong behavior. He would have small anger and frustration moments when he didn’t get his way. But he’s fabulous now!

He has a toy train set and he loves pretending he’s Thomas the Train. He absolutely loves swimming so going on our boat has been the highlight of the summer so far.

Our family members are planning a “welcome to the family/gotcha party” next month. We wanted some more time to bond with Lorenzo before he met the rest of the family. And trust me we’re big! He’s met some but not all.

He’s grown about three inches since coming home, so we’ve gone through a few “eating everything in sight” and “sleeping a lot” phases. He’s already outgrowing some of his 4T stuff too. We think he’s definitely going to be a tall boy!

We can’t thank you all at Lifetime for being the thread that tied our families together. Lorenzo’s birth mother is an amazing woman and gave us the best gift we could ever ask for. We keep in touch with her quite often and she’s doing great. She’s enrolled in college and almost done with her first term at becoming a nurse. We are so proud of her! We haven’t talked anymore about when a good time would be for Lorenzo to see her again but we will wait for a few more months to pass. It will be great to see her again! Once again thank you so much for everything!

-Pete and Jody

Congratulations, TJ and Adriane, on your lovely baby girl! We are so excited for you!

A Heart to Call Home

Good morning Linda and Deena!

Yesterday’s adoption finalization was such a pivotal and moving day! My cousin and a couple friends were there.

Here are a few pics: one was taken after our finalization proceedings; Mason’s teddy bear was from the judge and it has his name on it. The other photo is of Mason in the onesie he had under his “court outfit.”

Our Greatest Love of All

We are overjoyed that the baby girl that’s been growing in our hearts is now home in our arms. Our daughter, Aviya is truly a blessing and we fell in love with her at first sight! Lifetime has been AMAZING and has made this process smooth as it could be. Tiffany answered our every call and email and helped calm all of our fears. We have ALREADY recommended Lifetime to several of our friends because we trust and appreciate their warmth, genuine concern and professionalism. We pray that other adoptive families and birth moms are guided and supported as we were.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”

They’re Such a Blessing in Our Lives

Hi Deena!

It’s great to hear from you! The kids are doing excellent and are growing so much! We are all very happy and the kids are doing amazing and are in a good place. We are so proud of them and they are such a blessing in our lives! At now five and six, they continue to blow our minds with their progression. They are currently finishing the 3rd grade in homeschool, are taking karate (where they are getting 1st and 3rd place metals in tournaments), they sing in the county children’s choir, are young leaders at our church and are loved by our entire community. We can’t go anywhere without them being recognized and loved on. They are so loving, and giving and kind. We are so amazed by them. Though there were some more challenging times than others, they have persevered in ways I can only credit to God! They have both humbled us and enriched our lives in ways we can not explain in words. The latest and greatest is they are wanting us to adopt more children.

As always, thank you for all you have done for us!

-Raphael and Kimberly

So Happy We Chose Lifetime!

We’re excited to celebrate new adoptive parents, David and Deanna, who welcomed their newborn daughter this weekend!

“It’s been unbelievably busy these last few days! Thank YOU SO MUCH. Actually thank you isn’t good enough because how grateful we truly are can’t be put into words! We are SO happy we chose Lifetime on our special journey…God had His plan and He intervened and everything worked out better than perfect! We love all of you very much. It truly is by the grace of God that she is ours and she is absolutely perfect! Love you – huge hugs!”

Heaven Sent

Our daughter Kestrel is two months old! She now weighs 4 pounds 12 ounces, over twice her birth weight of 2 pounds 4 ounces. She’s grown more out than up, but has grown from 15 inches long to 17. Kestrel now regulates her own body temperature. That means she’s out of the incubator and into a crib. It also means she can start wearing clothes!

Kestrel began the slow transition to bottle feeding. Two of her eight daily feedings are by bottle, but she typically falls asleep halfway through. She usually gives a good burp without prompting and gives us “the hand” when she’s had enough patting on the back.

Kestrel is more alert now, opening her eyes wide and looking around her room. When she hears someone talking, she looks around to try to find them.

The hospital asked Laura and Kestrel to be models for Kangaroo Care. Kestrel has provided her first photo release form!

In addition to Kangaroo Care on the chest, we are holding her in our arms or on a boppy pillow so Kestrel can see our faces. She is also getting foot and hand massage as assigned by her occupational therapist.

We look forward to being together with Kestrel on Mother’s Day. We hope to all be back home by Father’s Day!

Rick and Jessica's adoption journey ended with the adoption of Corbin

Worth the Wait

Hi All,

We are over the moon excited about our sweetest addition to our family! Corbin Edward! We are all home now and doing wonderfully. He’s is doing so well! Sleeps, eats and poops a lot! We’re loving being parents and he was worth every minute of our adoption journey!

Our guardianship was approved and signed by the judge. He’s all ours! His adoption date should be happening in the next month or so.

We can’t thank all of you enough over at Lifetime for all the support and words of encouragement along our journey. The hospital experience was amazing and so special being with birth mom, birth mom’s mom, sister and the birth father. One of the best moments was when the birthfather said when he met Rick and I he couldn’t imagine placing his son with more of a perfect family! We all bonded and it was so bittersweet to say good-bye to all of them. Thanks again and love to you all! Hope you all have a blessed Easter!

-Rick and Jessica

A Double Blessing

Hi Linda,

We’re planning a birthday party for the twins, but it won’t be until January because of everyone’s work schedules right now (holidays). We had a little party for them on Tuesday. I will forward a pic once I have the boss’s (Retta) seal of approval on one that looks nice…lol.

Rayne and JD are such an absolute blessing, and we thank God for them every day! And we appreciate so much all of your help in bringing us together!

–Matt & Retta & Rayne & JD

I Grew in Mommy’s Heart

Deena,

I cannot believe its been 1 year since I was matched. I remember everything about that morning, including calling you back at 10:10 am ET and saying yes.

Lindsay turns 1 in a few short weeks. She has been a constant joy and entertainment. I would not trade a moment of our time together (even the teething, she has 8). She is my Lovey. As I celebrate her year of firsts, I wanted you to know I have not once forgotten about Lifetime or you and the gift you have given me. You and Lifetime are in the business of making dreams come true.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so blessed to call myself Lindsay’s mom.

Love and blessings, Cynthia

Forever Family!

Linda and Deena, God is good! We are elated to tell you that our adoption of our angels Alexis and Javon finalized via a video conference hearing yesterday. We are a forever family! We are feeling so joyful and so blessed. The kids were so excited about the final hearing that they could barely sleep the night before. They have been telling everyone that they have a forever family. Again thank you all at Lifetime for the persistence and hard work in making our dreams of parenthood come true.

It Takes Two

Hi Linda,

We are all doing great! JD is growing like a weed, he eats a lot! Rayne is getting bigger too, but she is smaller than her brother. All is well here, and we had a very nice Christmas and New Years. We hope you had a nice holiday as well, and best wishes for the new year!

Happiness is…

This open adoption has been more than I could’ve expected. We actually drove down twice since his birth and visited the birth mother and her family. Linda, Deena and I email often sharing updates. Jeremiah is now 13 months old and has blessed our family, church family, and community greatly.

Miles of Smiles

Hi Deena!!!
Happy New Year to you! It’s nice to hear from you.
Everything is going well. We have been quite busy! We had a great summer with trips to see the grandparents (Can we say getting spoiled!), visiting amusement/waterparks and museums for the first time and their favorite, dressing up like cows for Chick-fil-A Cow day. Alexis and Javon are doing excellent! They have transitioned quite well. They are such AMAZING children! We are so amazed each day of their progress. They soak up education like a sponge! They LOVE schoolwork! Yes! Can you believe it? If they could have learning time all day, they would. They have developed great friendships with the kids in our new neighborhood, church and in our town. They are extremely personable and love people. We live in a close-knit community where “everyone knows everyone.” They have made such an impression with everyone here. We can’t go anywhere without everyone asking for them! They get SO much attention! It doesn’t matter if we go to the grocery store or shopping or to the post office, everyone knows of Alexis and Javon as the sweetest kids they have ever met. If I go anywhere without them, people are literally disappointed. It’s so funny. It was such a pleasure to experience all the holidays with them. You can imagine all the excitement in the house with them learning about Halloween/Harvest Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas! We also continue to have a great relationship with their birth mother and stay in contact with her often. She is doing great, working so hard to start achieving her future goals. Attached are some pictures of the kids! Thank you and your office for all the hard work in bringing Alexis and Javon into our lives! We cannot thank you enough! They are truly such blessings and amazing children! We all are so full of joy! Thanks Deena!!!!!!! With Much Gratitude and Thanks,

Raphael and Kim

Our Dream Come True

We can’t thank you guys enough for all the joy and blessing you have bought us. We just can’t stop singing your praise of how professional and helpful Lifetime has been in making this a smooth and enjoyable experience. I know we have referred Lifetime to several families that have expressed interest in adopting. Our little princess was born in December and this is absolutely the most precious blessing anyone could pray or wish for, she has brought so much joy into our life. Just to be on the safe side I am including a couple of photos that we like the best and you ladies can decide which one you prefer, we’re fine with either one.

Best regards,
Charles, Rosa and baby Chase Rose


Baby Thomas is six months old!

God’s Greatest Gift

Hi Deanna, I hope all is well. We can’t believe Thomas Michael just turned six months old. The time is flying by and his smile at lunch time or learning to enjoy music never gets old! All seems to be going very smoothly with the final adoption proceedings. All is in place for the adoption to be finalized this week in court!

Blessings,
Thomas & Michelle

Our Amazing Family Addition

Hello to Everyone at Lifetime! It’s official! Exactly two months after bringing our precious baby boy home from the hospital, his adoption was finalized! The past couple of months have been amazing and we can’t thank you all enough for the encouragement and help you have provided throughout this entire journey. Without the incredible ladies at Lifetime and without our son’s wonderful birth parents, we wouldn’t have this amazing addition to our family and answer to our prayers. We thank God that He brought us all together in His perfect plan and timing. We can’t wait to do it all over again!

With love and gratitude,
Paul and Summer
 
 
 
 


Bundle of joy Thomas Michael

Our Bundle of Joy

It felt like we waited a lifetime for Thomas Michael. In reality, after completing Lifetime Adoption’s requirements we were matched within three weeks. Today, we celebrate his presence in our lives and the immediate joy he has brought to our home. Initially, the adoption process seemed so foreign and daunting, but now it is all a distant memory every time we look into Thomas’ eyes. Everything went smoothly and we know there were angels along the journey to ensure our bundle of joy arrived safely in our arms.

Thank you again for everything!
–Thomas & Michelle
