Baby girl Mireya
Congratulations to Luis & Christopher!
Luis and Christopher welcomed their daughter Mireya on October 12. Their brave birthmother Makayla was amazing throughout their journey. The three of them instantly bonded and had multiple visits and even held a gender reveal party! The special relationship they developed from March to October will forever be close to their hearts. With the help of their Adoptive Parent Coordinator, Melinda, Luis, and Christopher adopted in nine months. Only two months after their profile was presented did Makayla find them and they began this beautiful adventure together. These two fathers are so very grateful for their strong and courageous birthmother and the gift they now hold in their arms. Congratulations Luis and Christopher!
Baby girl Paige
Congratulations to Chris & Jeff!
Chris and Jeff began their adoption journey hoping to hit the ground running, and sure enough, they did! From May to September, their lives changed forever! Little did we know that an expectant mother had chosen them in her heart and mind back in July, but waited until she was delivering at the hospital to call and ask the family to be present and meet her in person. Lives were all changed that day as what she thought she wanted was a closed adoption ended up being a beautiful loving relationship with the adoptive parents of her daughter, Paige. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their story! Congratulations Chris and Jeff on your sweet bundle of joy, Paige!
Congratulations to Randy & Thang!
Randy and Thang experienced some heartache along the way before being matched with their birthmother Cristinna. They connected with her in June and welcomed their son on September 5. With the help of their Adoptive Parent Coordinator, Melinda, they placed 10 months into their adoption journey and their little one was worth the wait! Their birthmother Cristinna was an amazing person who they had a chance to visit with and communicate with often! Cristinna kept them updated daily on her activities and health. Randy and Thang were so grateful for their birthmother. They are excited for baby and the opportunity for Cristinna's outlook and future. Randy and Thang were so thankful for Cristinna's trust. We thank their birthmother and congratulate Randy and Thang on the birth of their son!
Baby boy Levi
Congratulations to Eddie & Orby!
Eddie and Orby had a long and quiet journey for the majority of their time with us. Nearing the end of their journey they started to wonder if there was a light at the end of the tunnel when one day, it all changed. In a whirlwind, an expectant mother due in a matter of weeks chose them and before we knew it they were heading to the hospital. This strong birthmom had the support of her own mother behind her which was so valuable in this difficult time. The family had the blessing of knowing ahead of time that the C-section was scheduled, so they were able to be present for the delivery of their son, Levi, on August 2, 2018. Congratulations Orby and Eddie on your own little miracle!
Baby girl Kayla D'Asia
Congratulations to Jackie!
Jackie had an unusually fast journey, but we know when the timing is right and the heart is open, miracles happen! Jackie was connected with her birthmother in July and Kayla D'Asia was born on August 09, 2018! With the help of Jackie's adoptive parent coordinator Jenee and birthmother coordinator Nicole, this whirlwind was successful and her life changed in the blink of an eye. Congratulations Jackie on the birth of your daughter Kayla D'Asia from all of your LifeLong Family!
Baby boy Jayden Isaiah
Congratulations to Kristen & Laura!
After over a year of waiting and a disheartening failed connection, Kristen and Laura had a beautiful surprise waiting for them! Their courageous birthmother reached out to us and chose them to parent her son with just over a week to spare. It was a beautiful whirlwind to be had and on August 2, 2018, Kristen and Laura welcomed Jayden Isaiah into their hearts and lives. We are so happy for you and that all your dreams came true! Congratulations!
Baby boy Clark Matthew
Congratulations to James & Brian!
Clark Matthew was welcomed by James and Brian on July 28, 2018, after quite an adventure! They traveled back and forth to the expectant mother's state and then after delivery, sweet Clark spent some time in the NICU. With the courage of the birthmother and the love and dedication by this couple, they all made it through to the end! James, Brian, and their daughter Reagan were able to welcome Clark home on September 29! Thank you to all for your courage and strength in this process. Congratulations on your beautiful family!
Baby girl Pressley Inez
Congratulations to Danny & Taylor!
At last, Danny and Taylor's love, little Pressley Inez, has come along! They say good things come to those who wait, but Danny and Taylor weren't expecting to have their perseverance tested to quite this degree. Through multiple failed opportunities, they remained firm in their belief that their family would grow through adoption. We are honestly in awe of the way they just kept showing up to each opportunity with hope and love. While there were definitely several moments along the way that tested them, now at their happily ever after, they know their daughter was worth the wait. Their Adoptive Parent Coordinator, Jenee, Birthmother Coordinator, Nicole, and other members of the LifeLong team are so excited to finally celebrate the joyous occasion welcoming Pressley into the world and the LifeLong family! Congratulations Danny and Taylor, we are so happy for you!
Baby boy Sam
Congratulations to David & Alan!
Congratulations David and Alan on the birth of their son Samuel on July 21st! These parents had some failed opportunities before they were connected with their brave birthmother in March. They knew their baby was out there and their amazing birthmother made her way to them. Alan and David had the opportunity to develop a secure relationship with their birthmother and were anxiously awaiting the birth of their son. After ten months, they were overjoyed to have Samuel in their arms. We commend their birthmother for her strength. Congratulations!
Baby boy Sebastian
Congratulations to Lukas & Mitch!
Lukas and Mitch were early into their journey when they matched with their expectant mother. They began to develop a relationship with her over the course of three months leading up to the big day! Through the ups and downs that adoption sometimes brings, Lukas, Mitch, and their courageous birthmother made a family complete on July 18, when Sebastian was born! It was a joyful homecoming for this couple when their sweet boy was welcomed into the world. Congratulations Lukas and Mitch on the birth of your son, Sebastian!
Baby boy Malcolm Rocco
Congratulations to Julie & Aldo!
Julie and Aldo were a joy to work with and had a wonderful relationship with their expectant mother. The situation was a special one in that she requested we send the family a gender reveal! The relationship was mutual as they all moved forward with support and positivity. The family connected with her right away, they visited her in person, and they established a wonderful relationship leading up to delivery. We all celebrated sweet baby boy Malcolm Rocco and his new family when he was born on July 16. Congratulations Julie and Aldo on the birth of your son!
