It touches our hearts to know how families often find perspective along a path to adoption. We are excited to see where each family’s story will lead them! It’s encouraging for our staff to know how we help in all stages of a family’s journey. Here’s a note we recently received from an adoptive couple in the waiting stage of their adoption:
“Thank you for being there to support us on this journey. When we started with Lifetime, we didn’t know how blessed we were to find you. You all have allowed us to have the peace of mind that we will become parents in God’s time. It wasn’t until we found Lifetime that we surrendered trying to take control and make the miracle of a child happen.
We now trust in God’s plan, knowing that you all are there working for us, our child, and the birth mom. It has also given us the time to focus on preparing our home, lives, and hearts more fully for our future child. The love and encouragement that you all have given us is invaluable. I hope you know that we love and appreciate you and you’ll remain in our hearts.
We’ll enjoy this wonderful summer, and the beautiful sunny days it brings. After all, each day is one day closer to meeting our child!
-Matt and Julia”

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.”
