Congratulations to Craig & Jen!
Congratulations to Craig & Jen on the birth of their son Bodhi! The couple joined Lifelong last summer ready and patiently waiting for their little one to come along. Jen & Craig were connected with their amazing birthmother in January. They were able to visit her and get to know this truly special woman. We certainly admire this selfless woman. In just seven months, Craig & Jen were welcoming sweet Bo into this world. The new parents to be are beyond happy and grateful for this little bundle of joy!
Baby girl Iyana
Congratulations to Chad & Joseph!
Chad and Joseph welcomed Iyana into their family in May and they could not be happier! They exemplified a willing and open heart towards adoption as a whole as they worked through various opportunities that failed and several unique circumstances. Iyana's brave birthmother chose an amazing couple to parent her beautiful daughter and we could not be more grateful. Chad and Joseph worked closely with their birthmother coordinator Nicole through their journey. Their journey was long but worth every second of waiting. Welcome, Iyana, Chad, and Joseph to the LifeLong Family!
Baby boy Oz Christopher
Congratulations to Joel & Oz!
Congratulations to Joel and Oz on welcoming their son Oz Christopher (Ozzie) into their loving home on May 29th! The couple faced a few failed opportunities along the way, but with guidance from their adoptive parent coordinator, Jenee, they connected with Ozzie's birthmother in late May. The couple established a great relationship with Ozzie's birthmother along the way and were there to greet him at the hospital after he was delivered. Lifelong is so happy to be a part of your wonderful story!
Baby girl Sloane Avery
Congratulations to Joey & Aaron!
Aaron and Joey came to LifeLong in January of 2017 with the desire to grow their family. They remained excited and positive throughout the process, keeping their friends and family updated on their milestones via social media. In March, Jenee, their adoptive parent coordinator, excitedly connected them with their daughter's birthmother. The couple flew to visit and attend doctor's appointments as they grew the relationship. On May 23rd, they welcomed Sloane Avery into their family! Congratulations on your beautiful addition. LifeLong is so grateful to be a part of your journey!
Baby girl Juliana
Congratulations to Chris & Erika!
Chris and Erika joined Lifelong in late 2016. Excited to expand their family, they remained enthusiastic despite waiting for the perfect connection for several months. With a situation that came up on LifeLong's end, they got a very last-minute call to head to Georgia on the weekend of May 19th. Chris and Erika dropped everything, started retaining services right away with the guidance of LifeLong, and started towards Georgia without any hesitation. Baby Juliana was born on May 12th and Chris and Erika started talking to Juliana's brave birth parents a week after she was born. Juliana's birth parents made this amazingly brave decision to put themselves last and do all that they can for Juliana and make an adoption plan. Despite the waiting, it truly has made this couple's dream come true! Congratulations to Chris, Erika, and family — LifeLong is ecstatic to have played a role in helping this family grow!
Baby girl Sydney Amelia
Congratulations to Tiffany & Kira!
From the initial conversation Tiffany and Kira had with their amazing birthmother, they had an instant and beautiful bond! After an incredible eight months, Tiffany and Kira were heading to Arizona to meet their baby daughter, Sydney Amelia. Sydney was born on January 1, 2018. In such a short amount of time, they gained a beautiful friendship and built an incredible relationship with Sydney's birthmother. We cannot express how incredibly grateful and happy we are for everyone involved. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Frank & Corey!
Congratulations to Frank and Corey on the adoption of their son, Liam Robert! The couple came to Lifelong in October of 2016 hoping to expand their family.

We are so grateful to this woman for putting herself last, and doing all that she could for her son. We admire your strength so much! In just seven months, Kelly and Julie became new mommies. Congrats!
Baby boy Monroe Terrence
Congratulations to Josh & Richard!
A beautifully strong expectant mother with adoption in her heart early on came to LifeLong and chose Joshua and Richard to parent her son. Both the birthmother and adoptive parents recall their first meeting as being nothing short of amazing! They did not want their time together to end. They talked more than they ate, and this amazing woman left their visit knowing she wanted nothing more than for this couple to parent her child. Josh and Richard traveled to the hospital and were blessed with being able to participate in the delivery of their son, Monroe Terrence. Congratulations Josh and Richard!
Baby boy Sebastian
Congratulations to Miles & Russell!
Congratulations to Miles and Russell on the birth of the handsome son, Sebastian Miles! Miles and Russell were only presented two times before talking with their lovely birthmother, Ashley! After their very first phone call, everyone knew this was meant to be. Ashley was ready to take the selfless steps towards placing her baby with Miles and Russell. In February, their Adoptive Parent Coordinator, Melinda, joyously connected them with Ashley. The parents-to-be had less than three months to develop a relationship with Ashley, and she with them. However, their connection was strong, and by the time April rolled around, everyone was prepared for the birth of this sweet little boy. We are so thankful for the altruistic mother that blessed Miles and Russell with this child. We here at LifeLong could not be more thrilled with this happily ever after!
Baby boy Brooks
Congratulations to Josh & Jack!
Josh and Jack had various twists and turns on their adoption journey, but their patience resulted in getting connected with an amazing birthmother! Over the course of several months, Josh and Jack were able to build a relationship with her, meet her in person, and even attend the delivery of their son Brooks. We are so thankful for the courageous act of Brooks' birthmother and the selfless love she has shown. Congratulations Josh and Jack!
