Baby girl Hayden Grace
Congratulations to Lucas & Nathan!
Patience and understanding are two really great words we would use to describe Nathan and Lucas. They adopted in 23 months! They were connected with their birth parents, Ashley and Chris for a few weeks until their baby girl Hayden Grace was born on April 6, 2017. It was a tough decision for Ashley and Chris to come by, but finding the perfect family for them made their mind more at ease. Nathan and Lucas went to Nevada about two weeks before Hayden was born to hang out and wait for her arrival. They were patient in navigating this difficult time for the birth parents. They were understanding and not pushy when it came to communication and knew that everything would work out the way it's supposed to. And it did! We cannot be more excited for this deserving and incredible couple. We wish you all nothing but the very best!
Baby girl Olivia Ryan
Congratulations to Maria & Victoria!
Maria and Victoria had a devastating failed match before they were connected with their birthmother, Sonja. Sonja was only connected with Maria and Victoria for a few short days when we got the notification she was in labor. Maria and Victoria headed to Arkansas without hesitation and they met their daughter the following day! Sonja had placed for adoption with LifeLong once before and made this brave, strong, and courageous choice to do so again. Olivia Ryan was born on April 6, 2017, and was as beautiful as ever! With every obstacle Maria and Victoria faced, it all led them to their new baby girl. Sonja, your determination, and strength is something we all admire here and we cannot thank you enough for completing this family! You will always hold a special place in our hearts. We cannot be more excited for this amazing couple! Congratulations Maria and Victoria!
Baby girl Olivia
Congratulations to Matt & Ian!
What a whirlwind it was for Matt & Ian's adoption journey. Just when they almost gave up hope, their baby girl was born on March 26, 2017! Olivia was brought into this world by her brave and amazing birthmother, Charlotte. They created such a special and beautiful relationship with Charlotte and Charlotte's family. With a head full of beautiful dark hair, she was everything and more that Matt and Ian ever hoped for. Their long awaited miracle was finally here! With ups and downs along the way, they continued to fight to fulfill their dream of becoming daddies. Olivia is one lucky girl to have such great parents and we cannot thank Charlotte enough for making their dreams come true! Congratulations from our LifeLong Family to yours!
Baby boy Gabriel Michaelee
Congratulations to Amanda & Jessica!
Born on January 21, 2014, Gabe Michaelee was two years old when his amazing birthmother, Donna, called LifeLong Adoptions looking to place him. She instantly connected with Amanda and Jessica, who adopted Gabe after waiting 17 months! He quickly took to them, smiling and laughing with his new family. The bond they all created is nothing short of beautiful. With his playful personality and beautiful smile, he stole Amanda and Jessica's hearts almost instantly. We cannot be more excited and happy for this new family and can't wait to see Gabe continue to grow! May you all have a lifetime of love and happiness. Many congratulations to this LifeLong Family!!!
Baby girl Riley Lauren
Congratulations to Randy & Ray!
After patiently waiting for 23 months, Randy and Ray were heading home with their new baby girl, Riley Lauren. Riley was born on March 15, 2017, and her amazing birth parents let Randy and Ray be a part of their journey. They met several times before the birth, sharing stories, getting lunch, building an amazing relationship, and attending doctor appointments with Mindy and Joe. Randy and Ray were respectful of Mindy and Joe's wishes on taking baby Riley home with her for a few days after discharging from the hospital. The strength, trust, and bond that they all shared and will continue to share is nothing short of amazing. We cannot thank Randy and Ray enough for respecting Mindy and Joe's wishes and we certainly cannot praise Mindy and Joe enough for being so incredibly strong for choosing this decision. You have made this family complete and we cannot be more happy for you all! Congratulations Randy and Ray!!
Baby Hudson Bennette
Congratulations to Gina!
Gina, we cannot be more excited for you! Gina adopted her son, Hudson Bennette, in 18 months. It was a long and enduring road for Gina, who was getting closer to her expiration date. She had a few birthmothers contact her, but things didn't work out. It only led her to her new son! Gina always remained hopeful and always would tell us there was a plan for her that she could not control, and was excited for when her time came. Just when she thought she was down on her luck, an incredibly brave birthmother, Yohori, called LifeLong from the hospital looking to place her son for adoption. She chose Gina and Gina was out to Georgia right away! Hudson was born on March 2, 2017, and we cannot admire Yohori's strength enough for making Gina's dreams of motherhood come true. If there is a message Gina would want to tell waiting families, it is, "Never lose hope, and trust the process." Congratulations, Gina!!
Baby boy Langston
Congratulations to Kate!
Kate endured some tragedy during her adoption journey, so this is a successful adoption we are very excited and grateful about! Langston was born on March 1, 2017, and Kate was heading out to Michigan to meet her new son! Dawnika, Langston's birthmother, and Kate were connected for two months, and Kate always remained supportive of Dawnika throughout their connection. While there were some ups and downs, Dawnika remained so strong and committed to her adoption plan. We cannot commend Dawnika enough in making Kate's dreams of motherhood come true. We will forever be thankful for her. Congrats to Kate, Langston is one lucky boy!
Baby boy Kai
Congratulations to Robert & Corey!
The wait is finally over! Corey and Robert's baby boy, Kai, was born on March 1, 2017, and they were on their way to the hospital in an instant. Their amazing birthmother, Jadzia, gave them the most selfless gift anyone can get. Corey and Robert were always very patient throughout the process, although it was emotional at times, it outweighed the wait of 21 months. 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 Liam Michael
Congratulations to Anthony & Steven!
LifeLong Adoptions is excited to announce the birth of Liam Michael. Liam was born on February 27, 2017, to proud new daddies, Anthony and Steven. Anthony and Steven's dream of becoming parents came true after 19 months of waiting. Although they went through some difficult let downs, their spirit was not broken. Their incredible birthmother, Whitney, helped them make their dream come true and we will forever be grateful for her. Congratulations to this new family — Liam is one lucky little guy!
Baby girl Grace Priscilla
Congratulations to Greg & Ray!
Seven months into their adoption journey, Greg and Ray were bringing home their baby girl Grace Priscilla from Texas. Grace was born on February 27, 2017, and her daddies' hearts grew the moment they saw here. They were such a remarkable support for their birthmother, Brandi, who wanted to start talking to Greg and Ray back in October. They were connected for four months and created a beautiful relationship that will last a lifetime. Congrats Greg and Ray!!
Baby girl Marcella Mabel
Congratulations to Carrie & Tracy!
Second time's the charm for Carrie and Tracy! Marcella Mabel was born on February 21, 2017. They adopted from us back in 2015, and we are so happy their family is growing through this beautiful world of adoption! They had an amazing relationship with their birthmother, Jennifer, and we cannot thank Jennifer enough for helping Carrie and Tracy add to their family. Congratulations to this amazing couple!! They adopted in a quick four months!
Baby girl Presley Emma
Congratulations to David & Gary!
Tough times don't last, but tough people do! David and Gary had a 23-month adoption journey, and while it had its times of trials and tribulations and up's and down's, they always hung in there. The joy at the end was all worth it. They knew their time was right when they were connected with their amazing birthmother, Emily. Emily delivered a healthy and beautiful baby girl, Presley, on February 18, 2017. David and Gary visited Missouri before the birth to spend time with their birthmother and her grandmother. Emily had such an amazing support system in David and Gary, along with her grandma. We are so happy that she had the love and support of everyone around her in making such a big decision. They all have gained extended family through this process and we were amazed to see how beautiful their story was. We could not be happier for this couple and we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
