Baby Girl Maya
Amy and Marc spent the last part of 2018 getting to know their daughter's birthmother and building a special connection. Amy and Marc were able to be there for the birth of their daughter, welcoming Maya into the world on January 18, 2018. We are grateful for the relationship that was formed between Amy, Marc, and Maya's birthmother. What a special gift Maya has been!
Baby Girl Isabelle Rose
In August, we reached out to Wendy with a potential connection. Despite the many uncertainties involved, Wendy stayed positive and was ready to move forward. Much to everyone's surprise, Wendy's birthmother went into labor at only 35 weeks and delivered a precious baby girl. Wendy was able to get to her daughter quickly and met her just 48 hours after she was born. Isabella Rose - Ella for short - was born October 1, 2017, eager to meet the world! Wendy spent the month of October at the hospital, allowing Ella the time she needed to get stronger. When they were discharged on October 20, they were quick to head back to the Midwest and settle into life together! Congratulations to this happy family!
Baby Boy Alexander Oakley
Bobby and Korey were fully prepared for a long adoption process, but were blessed to connect with their son's birthparents after only eight months! They spent the final month of the pregnancy getting to know both birth parents and welcomed their son, Alexander Oakley, into the world on March 5, 2018. Although their connection was quick, Bobby and Korey were so caring toward their son's birthparents and their adoption plan. Congratulations to these two new daddies, Alexander is one lucky little guy!
Baby Girl Marlie Jean
Vera and Sheldon had very little time to prepare for the birth of their daughter, as she was born the same day that her birthmother contacted Angel! Originally planning to work with a local agency, their daughter's birthmom had an adoption plan in place, but due to the lack of responsiveness, she contacted Angel. Angel was quick to connect her with a family and Vera and Sheldon raced to Connecticut to meet their daughter. Marlie Jean was born February 24, 2018, and met her adoptive parents shortly after. Marlie's birthmother had placed for adoption in the past and while every pregnancy is different, we are grateful that she kept her heart open to this process a second time! Vera and Sheldon were nothing but wonderful with Marlie's birthmom and we are sending them all the love and happiness in the world!
Baby Girl Fiona
While the wait for their daughter was long, it was worth it in the end! Robert and Tony started building a relationship with their daughter's birthmother in January, expecting to have until April to get to know her. Their daughter's birthmother ended up having an emergency delivery on February 24, 2018. The very next day, they met their daughter, Fiona! Going into the adoption process, Fiona's birthmother was leaning toward a closed adoption. After she saw the love and support Robert and Tony showed her, she decided she wanted to continue a relationship with them and Fiona in the future! Fiona is a lucky little girl to have the love of her birthmother and the love of her two dads. Congratulations!
Baby Girl Anneliese
When Karen and Jonathan's birthmother first saw their profile, she was instantly drawn to them because of the love they had for their pets. She is a vet tech and loved that they had animals in their home. After spending a weekend texting back and forth, everyone felt this was the perfect connection. Karen and Jonathan were able to spend the week of Thanksgiving with their daughter's birthmother, getting to know her and supporting her through the final days of her pregnancy. Sweet baby girl Anneliese was born on November 30, 2017, surrounded by the love of her birthmother and adoptive parents. Congratulations to this new family of three!
Baby Girl Royalty Elizabeth
Marianne was confident that the adoption process was the way she was meant to build her family. After connecting, Marianne and her daughter's birthmother spent the weeks leading up to delivery getting to know each other. They even discussed names for the baby together! Royalty Elizabeth, born February 19, 2018, lives up to her name by being Marianne's little princess. Congratulations to new mom, Marianne, who is not only wonderful to Royalty but was so supportive of Royalty's birthmother through the adoption process.
Baby Girl Riley Nicole
After some failed connections, Heather and Lesha remained positive, knowing that the timing had to be perfect. In December 2017, Heather and Lesha were selected by a couple that knew adoption was the best choice for their daughter. All four parents were able to spend the end of 2017 and early 2018 building a loving relationship that will forever benefit their daughter. Riley Nicole was born on February 19, 2018, and was able to spend her first days of life with both her birthparents and adoptive parents. For Heather and Lesha, the failed connections were a blessing in disguise because they led them straight to Riley and her birthparents, who are family now.
Baby Girl Preslee Rae
After connecting with their daughter's birthmother, Chris and Aimee remained in contact with her through the final trimester of her pregnancy. Chris and Aimee's daughter, Preslee Rae, was born February 15, 2018, and she is the light of their life. Congratulations to Chris and Aimee on their newest family member!
Baby Girl Emma Jean
Duane and Chanelle spent the better part of their daughter's birthmother's pregnancy getting to know her and her birthfather. They were able to visit with both birthparents in November 2017. Just before her scheduled C-section, they headed to Washington to spend some time together. Emma Jean was born on February 8, 2018, already loved by so many! Congratulations to Duane and Chanelle who adopted in six short months!
