Here’s a sweet email we recently received from a successful adoptive family, Jake and Alicia:
Just wanted to send a quick update to you guys and a few pictures. Last month, Grace became a big sister. She absolutely LOVES her little brother! She gives him kisses every chance she gets (as you can see in the one picture).
She is such a happy girl and we couldn’t be more blessed and thankful! I can’t believe that she is nine months old already. Time sure is flying by and I’m so thankful for all of the blessings God has given us in the last year!
Thank you for all that you do at Lifetime in bringing families together and for caring for the adoptive families, babies, and birth mothers. I recommend you to anyone that asks me about adoption!
Alicia (and Jake)”

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.”
