“As we sit here writing this email tonight, we’re totally in awe of how much our lives have changed in just one short year. A year ago, we were sitting in a hospital room with a tiny baby boy who was going to call us Mama and Dada. We didn’t know how his health was going to be, we didn’t know how the next few days and weeks would play out, and we didn’t know that we could possibly love someone so deeply the first time we saw them…

A year ago, our lives were forever changed. Hank is the sweetest, happiest, most loving little guy we’ve ever been around. We always questioned the journey God had planned for us. We wanted everything our way and on our time. It wasn’t until we completely turned it over to God that He blessed us with the most amazing gift ever: being parents! ‘I’ve found all I’ve waited for, and I could not ask for more!’ is how we’re feeling right now.

We wanted to thank you again for your endless support throughout this journey. We know we couldn’t have done it without you!


Dustin and Miranda”

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.”
