Our devoted staff of Adoption Coordinators at Lifetime Adoption routinely get emails from past Lifetime adoptive families with updates on how life is going after adoption. They email us updates, photos, and words of gratitude for the work we did to help them. So, we were thrilled to get this email from adoptive couple Roger and Tricia:
We are not quite sure where the time has gone as our princess is turning 6 today and just lost her first tooth! Katie is really enjoying hearing all of the details of the day we got “the call” and her very special birth story!
She loves Kindergarten, her teacher, playing with her friends and reading. She has read over 100 books so far this school year! She is really loving art class and has been drawing every chance she gets! She even had 4 of her paintings displayed in the school art show recently. She also enjoys singing and acting and will again be in our Christmas program at church.
Katie is also turning into our little athlete! She continues to swim on the swim team and runs 5Ks and has recently taken up ice skating lessons. She has also learned to ride her bike this year and rides up to 8 miles at a time.
We have also enjoyed traveling to several states this year to visit family and friends.
Thank you again, Veronica and the Lifetime staff, for everything you did to help us create our forever family. We will be eternally grateful for all of the love and support you have provided us and Katie’s birthmom. We continue to pray for each of you, the birthmoms and adoptive families and that God will continue to bless your ministry!
Tricia and Roger”
