We were accepted into Lifelong in November 2013 and so excited!! We worked on our home study and our profile with Tisa and our profile went up January 17th 2013 on Tuesday March 4th 2014 we got the call, a birth mother picked us, she was from Minnesota just 5 1/2 hours from us, she was having a boy and due June 23rd!! We were so excited, could not believe it was happening so fast, we were thrilled! We met our birth mother in May 2014, she was great, it made us even more excited to meet our little boy! We got the call on June 9th 2014 that our baby was on his way, we had our bags packed and the car seat in the car we drove (maybe a little too fast) but we made it just in time! we arrived at the hospital at 12 am on June 10th and Oakley was born at 12:30am 8lbs 3oz 21 1/4 inches long, perfect healthy little boy! We both got to be in the delivery room and cut the umbilical cord. It was the most amazing experience, we stayed in the hospital with him and took him home with us on June 11th. We are loving every minute of being parents and have Lifelong adoptions and our birth mother to thank for this amazing blessing!
