  • Baby girl Xéla Rose

    Congratulations to Nicholas & Menelik!

    Congratulations Nicholas & Menelik on the birth of beautiful Baby Girl Xéla Rose. This family worked hard to portray their true selves in their profile and ultimately captured the eye of their wonderful birthmother through the love and humor they showed. They connected with her only a few short months after beginning their journey and developed an amazing relationship with this strong woman. Their journey progressed as they talked and they met face to face, solidifying their relationship and her decision on the family that was right for her baby. Xéla Rose was born on April 07, 2018, and we could not be happier for the growth of this wonderful family through adoption! Nicholas and Menelik adopted in only six months!

  • Baby boy Nikolaus Edward

    Congratulations to Destiny & Rachel!

    Destiny and Rachel were just settling into their adoption journey after completing their home study and family profile. They were not expecting to get any news for a while. Little did they know, shortly after that, they would have baby Nikolaus Edward in their arms! In just a quick two months, Destiny and Rachel were connected with their wonderful birthmother. They embarked on a cross-country trip to meet her and their son for the first time. Nikolaus was born on December 8, 2017. Congratulations to this new family!

  • Baby boy Caleb Erik

    Congratulations to Mike & Brian!

    Though it was a LONG one, the wait is finally over for Mike and Brian! Baby boy Caleb was born on March 22, 2018, and Mike and Brian were on their way to the hospital in an instant. Their amazing birthmother gave them the most selfless gift anyone could get, though, understandably so, it was a very difficult decision for her to come to. Mike and Brian were always very patient throughout the process, and although it was emotional at times, it outweighed the wait. They are now new daddies to a beautiful baby boy! We are incredibly happy to have been a part of your journey and seeing your dreams of parenthood come true. Wishing you all the very best! Congratulations!

  • Baby boy Bennett Arnold

    Congratulations to Scott & Brittney!

    Congratulations to Scott and Brittney! Bennett Arnold was born on March 22, 2018. Scott and Brittney were matched with their wonderful birthmother for exactly a month until their new baby boy arrived, but they had everything set and ready to go! They always remained calm and patient and trusted the process of adoption. They assured the birthmother that they were there to support her and be there for her whenever she gave them the word, and they were. They hopped in the car the second she told them he was born! The bond they formed and the caring love they showed towards her in such a short amount of time was so admirable. Congratulations again to this happy couple! Scott and Brittney adopted in eight months.

Sarafina and Jenn were so supportive to respect their birth parents wishes when they asked to take little Nova home with them after discharge for a few weeks. Sarafina and Jenn showed their care, love, and support towards them during that time, and we are forever grateful for the compassion they posed during their match. Nova is beyond lucky to have all of you in her life to give her endless kisses and love! Congratulations to this sweet couple!

  • Baby girl Madison Amani

    Congratulations to Nicole!

    Nicole was always hoping for a sweet baby girl to become a mommy to, and her dream came true on February 8, 2018! Madison Amani was born on February 8, 2018, just 15 months into Nicole's adoption journey! She and her birthmother met before the birth, and Nicole was even able to attend one of the doctor's appointments! They hit it off and built an incredible friendship during the time they were connected. It was a beautiful outcome and we are so thankful to have played a role in connecting these two amazing women. Congratulations, Nicole!

  • Baby boy Everett Calvin

    Congratulations to Dustin & Brooke!

    The wait is finally over! Dustin and Brooke's baby boy, Everett Calvin, was born on February 20, 2018. At the drop of a hat, they were on their way to Ohio to be there for the C-section. Their amazing birthmother gave them the most selfless gift anyone could give. Dustin and Brooke made a trip to spend time with their birthmother prior to the birth, meeting her daughter and going out to lunch. It was a wonderful time and they developed a special bond they will cherish forever. Dustin and Brooke's patience and understanding during their journey was admirable. We are incredibly happy to have been a part of your journey and seen your dreams of parenthood come true. Wishing you all the very best!

  • Baby boy Ashton Kenneth

    Congratulations to Denea!

    On February 19, 2018, Denea got the call she had been waiting for! Ashton Kenneth was born on February 10, 2018, a few weeks early. Denea's amazing birthmother, who we were in touch with since November of 2017, made the brave decision to call LifeLong when the baby was being discharged and wanted to move forward with adoption. Denea dropped everything she was doing and went straight to South Carolina to meet her son for the first time! We are so thankful for Ashton's birthparents. Because of their selfless act, another family has had their dreams come true. Denea adopted in a quick four months!

  • Baby boy Preston Armand

    Congratulations to Domonic & Kenan!

    We're so excited to celebrate our first Illinois to Illinois placement! LifeLong recently got licensed under the licensing of Luthern Child and Family Services of Illinois, and shortly thereafter, Domonic and Kenan joined LifeLong. Just one month into their adoption journey they were contacted by a brave woman, also in Illinois, who wanted to start talking with them. They were matched with her from October to February. Their son Preston Armand was born on February 7, 2018, and they couldn't be prouder dads! We couldn't be more excited and happy for this sweet couple who we were fortunate enough to all meet. Congrats Kenan and Domonic!
