Baby girl Thea Deanna
Congratulations to Nick & Mike!
We are so excited to announce that Nick and Mike were blessed with a beautiful baby girl! Little Thea Deanna came into their lives after just 14 months of waiting. She was born on July 26, 2017, and was immediately welcomed into the world by her new parents! Before Thea's birth, Nick and Mike made a visit out to Texas to meet their amazing birthmom, Savannah. The LifeLong family is so truly happy for this new family and we hope they have many amazing memories together! Thank you so much to Savannah for making such a brave and courageous choice to help Nick and MIke grow their family with a new bundle of joy!
Baby boy Braeden Amir
Congratulations to Charles & Davian!
Congratulations to Charles and Davian who adopted their handsome son, Braeden Amir in five short months! Braeden was born on July 22, 2017, in Pennsylvania, and Charles and Davian flew across the country to meet their son! They made it a point to put Braeden's birth parents, Cassie and Tre'rese, first and be there for them during this emotional time. They showed such care, and love towards Braeden's birth parents and we couldn't appreciate that more! They built a relationship, Facetime'ed, texted, and met face to face over the course of the four months during their connection. They built a beautiful foundation with one another! Shockingly, Charles and Davian's profile was only shown three times before they were chosen! This goes to show that everything works out the way it's supposed to and fate always has its course! We are wishing you all a lifetime of love and happiness!
Baby boy Gryffin
Congratulations to Olivia & Jessie!
It was a long journey for Olivia and Jessie who went through several failed matches along the way, but they always kept a positive attitude. When their incredible birthmother, Shannon, contacted LifeLong in April of 2017, stating she was expecting a baby in July, there were some questions and uncertainties on all ends. But when Olivia, Jessie, and Shannon started communicating, they hit it off immediately! With similar likes, interests, personalities, and goals, they created a bond that is very special. They continued to talk over the course of the next few months. Olivia and Jessie even invited Shannon out to their home state where she could see where her son would be raised. A few weeks later, Olivia and Jessie headed out to South Carolina to see Shannon's neck of the woods! They built a very trusting relationship, which is key to any adoption. On July 19, 2017, their lives were changed forever! Little Gryffin entered this world and was as beautiful as ever. Gryffin is one lucky little boy to have all of you in his life! We cannot commend Shannon enough for her bravery and willingness to put herself last and do all that she could for her son. Olivia and Jessie adopted in 24 months, and the wait is finally over. We cannot be happier. Congratulations Olivia and Jessie!
Baby girl Zoey
Congratulations to John & Harry!
John and Harry adopted a wonderful baby girl, Zoey, on July 3, 2017. Zoey entered this world and immediately stole the hearts of her new parents. We admire the strength and courage of Zoey's birthmother, Ashley, in choosing adoption and the beautiful relationship all of them created during this journey! We cannot thank her enough for making this family's dream come true. John and Harry adopted in 14 months and we are so glad they did! Wishing this family the very best!
Baby girl Bodhi Kate
Congratulations to Kaydian & Nandini!
It was a long road for Kaydian and Nandini, who went through several failed matches during their adoption journey. All along the way, they always held on to that little bit of hope that "everything will work out the way it's supposed to." They were feeling down on their luck when a last-minute situation changed it all. To say that their journey was roses and rainbows would not necessarily be accurate, but once they laid eyes on their daughter, it all changed for the better. Little Bodhi Kate was born on May 12, 2017, and their lives were changed forever! Seeing everything this sweet couple went through and knowing their lifelong dream to be mothers has come true brings so much joy to us. Bodhi is one lucky little girl! Her birth parents were so confident in their decision and remained strong when others were against them. We cannot commend them enough for their bravery and willingness to put themselves last and do all they could for their daughter. A beautiful relationship has blossomed between these four in such a short amount of time. The wait is finally over, and we cannot be happier. Congratulations Kaydian and Nandini!
Baby girl Avery Jane
Congratulations to Heather!
Birthmother Sarah admitted she was considering adoption prior to contacting LifeLong in early December. LifeLong helped her pick from various family profiles and she felt confident in having Heather adopt her baby girl. Over the course of the next six months, they built a beautiful relationship. Heather visited Sarah prior to the birth and headed to Kentucky days prior to wait for the arrival of Avery Jane. Avery was born on June 24, 2017, as healthy as could be! She was able to spend her first hours in the world surrounded by the love of her birthmom and adoptive mom. Heather adopted in 12 months. From all of us here at LifeLong, we wish Heather, Sarah, and Avery nothing but love and happiness! Congratulations!
Baby girl Kaley May
Congratulations to Kristin!
During Kristin's adoption journey, she had a few ups and downs, but she always had a positive outlook on everything. She waited a grueling two months for things to become final, and she showed nothing but poise, trust in the process, and gratitude to her amazing birthmother, Tierra, who gave her the most selfless gift anyone can get and give. Kristin and Tierra connected instantly, developing an incredible bond. LifeLong is so excited for Kristin, who traveled to Tennessee to meet her new daughter, Kaley May. She was born early on April 11, 2017, but as healthy and beautiful as can be! Tierra is equally as excited for Kristin and the two will have a lifelong friendship. Despite the trials and tribulations Kristin endured along adoption journey, completing her family through adoption will always be worth it! The strength that Tierra and Kristin both shared is so admirable. Congratulations Kristin, the wait is finally over! Kristin adopted in 23 months.
Baby girl Urban Dawn
Congratulations to Mindy & Angie!
With some trials and tribulations for Mindy and Angie, one thing that showed through during their adoption journey was poise. Along the way, four different birthmothers wanted to have contact with them, but all four times they were let down when things did not work out. Then their beautiful birth parents contacted LifeLong in January of 2017, and said they wanted to start talking with Mindy and Angie. During the course of the next six months, both families built something we don't see in every case we work. They formed a true friendship and extended family with one another while keeping the same goal in mind: build a beautiful life for their baby girl, Urban Dawn. Urban was born on June 11, 2017, and Mindy and Angie were there with their birth parents every step of the way during the delivery and birth. Urban was welcomed not only by her new mommies, but her amazing birth parents, too. The time the families spent together before and after Urban's arrival is something we're sure will be some of their greatest memories. We're appreciative and grateful for Mindy's and Angie's understanding of the adoption process, patience during the waiting period, and keeping a positive outlook during the hardest times. We are overjoyed their birth parents found us and we cannot commend them more for showing such strength, determination, and selflessness in doing what was best for Urban, and putting themselves last to do all they could for her. Good things really do come to those who wait, and we wish you ALL a lifetime of love and happiness! Congratulations!!!
Baby girl Maya Kay
Congratulations to Kristen & Kendra!
Twice as nice! Nine months into their second adoption with LifeLong, Kristen and Kendra were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Maya Kay. We are so excited you were able to build your growing family through adoption, and that we could play a role in that. When their birthmother, Joyce, called to say she was going to the hospital and believed she was in labor, Kristen and Kendra were off to D.C., and Maya Kay was born on June 9, 2017. Congratulations to this beautiful family. We wish you nothing but happiness, joy, and love with your angels!
Baby girl Annika Marie
Congratulations to Drew & Asim!
A big congratulations to parents Drew and Asim on adopting their daughter! Drew and Asim spent the last three months of their birthmother's pregnancy supporting her throughout the adoption process. Annika Marie was born on June 8, 2017, and is already so loved by Drew's and Asim's families! Their birthmom, Kristina, has been such a blessing to them and their new family and we couldn't thank her enough for her strength, courage, and selflessness during this journey. Congratulations again, Drew and Asim! They adopted in nine months.
Baby girl Charlotte Katherine Rose
Congratulations to Amber!
Wow! That's all we can say about the match that Amber and birthmom Judy went through. In just six short months Amber was welcoming her beautiful baby girl, Charlotte Katherine Rose, into this world on the 1st of June. The instant we connected Judy and Amber, it was apparent they were meant to be with each other. Amber showed nothing but patience, understanding, love, and compassion toward Judy, who was in a very vulnerable and, at times, difficult situation. Judy showed nothing but confidence, gratitude, and appreciation for everything Amber did for her during the three months they were going through this process together. Charlotte is so lucky to have such an open-minded, protective, and loving new mommy and birthmother. Thank you all for being so wonderful and amazing to work with. We cannot congratulate you enough!
Baby girl Olivia Louise
Congratulations to Travis & Barron!
In just 13 short months, Travis and Barron were off to Indiana to meet their baby girl, Olivia Louise, for the first time! Olivia was born on May 20, 2017, and her amazing birthmother, Kea, gave Travis and Barron the most gracious gift of all! Only seven months into their adoption journey, Travis and Barron got the call that would change it all! There were a few ups and downs along the way where she was not sure of her decision, but a few months later grew confident that Travis and Barron were the parents for little Olivia. They built a wonderful relationship with their birthmother, who was strong and amazing through the entire process. We are so happy for this incredible couple and wish you a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations!
