Couple and their adopted childOur adoptive families have often shared with us that open adoption can sometimes feel like extended family…here’s a recent update from Kayla & David: “

“Hi Diane and Lifetime Team,

Happy belated Holidays! Just wanted to check in and always thank you for helping us to become one big happy family! We will be forever grateful to you all at Lifetime.

This last year has been a crazy good one for us. In June, we celebrated Grey’s first birthday with a big backyard bash for him and all of our friends. Soon after that, he was off and walking…running! Now there is no slowing him down! Then in August his birth mom and half brother came to spend the weekend for a visit. Though we stay in close contact with his birth mom through texts and pictures, this was the first time that we were going to all be seeing each other since Grey was born. Yes, we were all a little nervous before the visit, but within minutes of their arrival we were all laughing and joking and spending time together. It was an awesome experience for all of us and one that we will treasure for a long time to come.

We have also spent the last year traveling and spending time with our families. Grey is racking up the sky miles and loves to fly in the big airplanes to see his grandparents. He has taken several trips to the family farm and loves the tractors and cows. He even got to attend his great grandma gram’s 100th birthday party a couple of months ago. Yay!


It has been an amazing year for us and we are just making sure to take the time to enjoy of new milestone as the time goes by all too quickly. Being parents has always been a wish of ours and we couldn’t have dreamed it any better than this. Again thank you!

-David & Kayla”
