Lifetime’s staff are here for adoptive families in each step of their adoption journey. When they are having a tough time waiting for their child, we’re here with tips and encouragement. And, once they adopt a baby (or child), we get to celebrate right alongside them, too! 

The adoptive family in today’s installment of Lifetime Adoption’s “Then and Now” series is Greg and Tina from Wisconsin.

Experiencing a difficult time with their adoption wait, they shared with Lifetime, “We’re so hopeful for our true match. Please say an extra prayer for us that our baby will be sent to us soon! With your help, prayers, and referrals, this will happen! BLESSINGS.”

Due to infertility, we have chosen adoption! We can’t wait to meet you and adopt a little one who will have an amazing big brother & adoring, experienced & passionate family!”

Greg and Tina adopted a baby girl through Lifetime three months ago. They were elated, as were the staff at Lifetime Adoption who did all the work needed to make their adoption happen!

She loves cute outfits and pink everything! She has gotten spoiled with three baby showers and over 50 cute girly outfits and lots of toys and overflowing love from our extended families and friends.  We love her to pieces!

Thanks to Lifetime and our amazing lawyer. It was a very long bumpy challenging blessed road that lead us to our perfect match. So blessed.”
