Check out what adoptive families had to share about their favorite part of adoption:

“The most rewarding part? Meeting our baby, developing a relationship with our birthmother, meeting y’all in person….I could go on and on….there’s not a single most rewarding…..for my favorite part? Having our baby and bringing him home to meet the rest of his family!”

“When I held my babies the first time!!!!! It was like God said here is my gift to you;)”

“Being in the delivery room and holding our birthmother’s hand, seeing Alaina’s new birth certificate with our last name on it, when my 6 month old Alaina reaches her hands up for me to pick her up. It thrills my heart when our b’mom texts or sends a Facebook message that she’s so proud of the job we’re doing and so happy with her decision.

“spending the night in the hospital w/Liam’s birthmom and getting to know her as well as taking care of Liam. :)”

“Seeing how the adoption was sooo meant to be! Seeing the babies grow and fit in your family and life just as they should. Both of our experiences were a little bumpy but wonderful. We enjoyed most of it!!!”

“Every single thing I can think of was the best! For each and every step, call, moment waiting, praying led us to Lifetime, our birthmother and then our precious son who turned 6 yesterday. We love everyone at Lifetime, however Libby will forever hold a special spot in our hearts! Our birth mom made the most selfless act of kindness that I can imagine. Her & her family will forever be a part of our extended family. We can’t say enough good things about Lifetime, our birth mom and naturally our son! We love you all!”

Founder of Lifetime Adoption, adoptive mom, adoption expert, and Certified Open Adoption Practitioner (C.O.A.P).

Since 1986, adoption expert Mardie Caldwell has been dedicated to bringing couples and birth parents together in order to fulfill their dreams.

“Many years ago, I was also searching for a child to adopt. We didn’t know where or how to get started. Through research, determination, and a prayer, our dream of a family became reality. I started with a plan, a notebook, assistance from a caring adoption consultant and a lot of hard work; this was my family I was building. We had a few heartaches along the way, but the pain of not having children was worse!

Within weeks we had three different birth mothers choose us. We were overwhelmed and delighted. Many unsettling events would take place before our adoption would be finalized, many months later. Little did I know that God was training and aligning me for the adoption work I now do today. It is my goal to share with our families the methods and plans which succeed and do not succeed. I believe adoption should be affordable and can be a wonderful “pregnancy” for the adoptive couple.

I have also been on both sides of infertility with the loss of seven pregnancies and then conceiving by new technology, giving birth to a healthy daughter. I have experienced first-hand the emotional pain of infertility and believe my experience allows me to serve your needs better.

It is my hope that for you, the prospective parents, your desire for a child will be fulfilled soon.”
