Adoption Stories Then and Now – Aaron and Ana

by | Apr 22, 2020 | Adoptive Families Blog

Aaron and Ana's family grew through domestic infant adoption!We love this adoption update from California adoptive couple, Aaron and Ana, who adopted their son through Lifetime earlier this year: “We are over the moon excited to have Josiah and words cannot express how grateful we are you connected us to his birth mom. Thank you sooo much! We are in baby heaven and love and cherish every moment with him. He is pure gold!”
Join Lifetime as we recall Aaron and Ana’s beautiful adoption story today from the start, as part of our “Then and Now” series.
When Aaron and Ana began their adoption journey with Lifetime, they shared, “We LOVE adoption!! Adoption has always been a dream on both of our hearts. The deepest desire of our hearts is to give our children unconditional love and to empower and nurture them to discover and become all God created them to be. Because we know God called us to adoption, therefore we are starting this journey trusting God to provide what we need.”
Aaron and Ana's adoption profileIn their adoption profile, Aaron and Ana wrote, “We are an active, fun-loving, multicultural family of three who love the outdoors, traveling, going on lots of adventures and ending our days with cuddles, reading, playing and praying together. Through the miracle of adoption, eleven years ago God blessed us with our incredibly sweet and loving daughter, Emma. We’ve loved every stage of her growth and we look forward to loving, nurturing and adoring your baby and helping him or her live life to the fullest! We would love to get to know you and the hopes you have for your child, and we’re very open to keeping in touch with photos, letters, and visits.
Aaron grew up in Northern California, and Ana was born and raised in Europe. In 2002, God brought us together from opposite sides of the world and we embarked on a wonderful adventure of traveling the world and working together with families and children in foster care. We love kids and always wanted to have a big family. In 2007, through the miracle of adoption, we joyously welcomed Emma into our lives. Whether it’s being outdoors, playing games on our dining room table, attending church or going out with family and friends, we’re happiest when we’re together. We absolutely love being parents and are praying every day for the blessing of receiving another child into our home.”


Aaron and Ana joyfully welcomed a baby boy, Josiah, into their home through a Lifetime adoption! We feel blessed to be able to share their story with you here today.

The excited new parents say, “Our lives have gloriously changed and we couldn’t be more thrilled. He was meant for our family indeed! We are so grateful for you and your patience in helping us connect with our son’s birth mother. Even when we were discouraged, you had the hope and faith we needed and for that we are so grateful! There are no words to express how grateful we are to God for entrusting us with our new son, and how grateful we are to his birth mother for choosing us. In our book she is a hero! What a privilege and what a gift! We are forever grateful to Lifetime for connecting us to our son’s birth mother!
I am grateful for the process of waiting, though long and hard at times, and yet when I see our new son, I see the overwhelming goodness of God weaved through it all. I am filled with overwhelming gratefulness and awe. Thank you!”


 We’d love to help you create your own
beautiful adoption story!
