Lifetime Adoption has helped create many miracles through the blessing of adoption. Today, we are excited to share some of Lifetime’s adoption success stories!
We are full of joy about being able to witness the beautiful moments in adoptive couples’ lives throughout the year. We hope the years to come bring even more beautiful moments!
Here are some adoption success stories, as told by Lifetime Adoptive families:
“We first approached Lifetime in 2016 and everyone was so welcoming and knowledgeable. We were not ready to move forward at that time but we returned to Lifetime three more times before we finally got the nerve to take the leap! Each time we connected with Kim King, she answered every question, made us feel welcomed and assured us that God would reveal to us when the time was right for our adoption.
We signed on in 2019 and we completely loved and cared for by each Lifetime staff person we encountered. When we were matched and placed on six months into our wait (before we even got to do our video!), Christie was right there every step of the way, even when we were really struggling with the tremendous life change. All in all we felt loved and cared for. We weren’t just numbers to Lifetime, we were a family, they knew us by name and took time to be with us in the good and hard times. We cannot express our gratitude for this agency and for this team of professionals.”

Here’s another one of Lifetime’s adoption success stories that we think you’ll enjoy!
“I can’t believe it has been almost eight months since we flew out for the birth of our baby boy Nico. We listened to all the webinars retelling stories of parents who received the call that they had matched and immediately had to fly across the country, but never did we think that we would be one of those people caught up in a whirlwind match and hopping on a plane two days later for the birth.
Nico’s story and ours still feels so incredible. The way little details fell into place at just the right timing (even though it felt like a roller coaster ride at the time) continually confirms to me that a greater hand was/is in play for all of this. We had the opportunity to spend time with his birth parents and their families at the hospital, and for what could have been an awkward situation with people we had just met on the phone turned out to be a huge blessing. It was wonderful to be with people and get to know these kind people who were just as concerned as us about the well-being of this child.
We couldn’t wait to get home, and once we did our new normal began to take shape as we adjusted to having a baby in the home again. The older boys were enamored with their youngest brother from the second we walked through the door. They look to engage him whenever they can, they play around him constantly, and try to help him all the time. As a result, Nico smiles the second he hears their voices and twists and turns until he can see them.
We are so in love with Nico, and he fits into our family like he was made exactly for us and us for him. When working with you guys at Lifetime I was not always sure if this was really going to happen. It seemed too surreal sometimes, but with each phone call or webinar or card in the mail I felt the nice reassurance that we were a part of something real. And when we had questions or needed immediate help, someone was always available. Now, he is here, and you helped shape us into a family of five. Thank you!”
