New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Nichelle

Blog Nichelle

Sometimes adoptive parents have a failed adoption before they meet the baby meant to be theirs and Nichelle was no exception. This time in 2016, Nichelle had never dreamed that she would be holding her precious baby boy as the holiday season approached. After dealing with the absolutely crushing news that a birth mom she was previously matched to had decided to parent, Nichelle bravely stepped her toes back in the waters of waiting for a birth mom. After some short connections that didn’t work out, Nichelle was matched with birth parents Jazmyn and CJ. After meeting in person Nichelle felt confident that this was her match.

She continued to get to know Jaz & CJ and built their relationship. Jazmyn was induced on Halloween and that afternoon, along with one very excited grandma, Victor was welcomed to the world with a blanket of love and joy from his mom, grandma and birth parents. The perseverance and determination to be a mom pushed Nichelle through the ups and downs of her adoption journey. We admire the courage it took to continue to open up and put herself out there. We are forever grateful for the selfless act of love that was made by CJ and Jaz as they considered the future of their son. Congratulations, Nichelle! You certainly have the cutest pumpkin in the patch!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Brian and Sara

Holley BA

Brian and Sara rang in 2017 with the exciting decision to begin their adoption journey with Everlasting and boy oh boy will they be ending 2017 with a bang! When Brian and Sara received the news that birth mom Kelly was interested in getting to know them, the news was overwhelming and exciting at the same time! The first connection with a birth mom is always a bit overwhelming, but Everlasting guided them through their first contact and early communications. As the bond between the 3 grew, the excitement of baby’s impending arrival filled Sara and Brian with pure joy. While Kelly was scheduled for a C-Section mid November, Anderson had different plans! Kelly called Sara on November 3rd with the news that she was certain she was in labor. Brian and Sara packed up and took a red eye to Ohio. At 9:22 a.m. their lives changed forever. Waiting anxiously just a few rooms over, several minutes after being born, Anders met his mommy and daddy! While Brian and Sara were confident in Kelly’s decision, the 72 hours waiting for Kelly to sign her consents were long. This new family spent time together making sure that everyone felt supported. Just 4 days after going into labor, thanks to a speedy legal process, Brian and Sara were off on their new adventure as parents! Sara and Brian said that the connection with Kelly was divine and something they will treasure and cherish forever. We are all beyond blessed and hold dear to our hearts the confidence that Brian and Sara placed with us to build their family as well as the trust Kelly had in Everlasting to aid in her adoption plan. Congratulatulations, Brian, Sara & Anderson!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Paul and Diana

Baby Feet Use

Many people have stories about the ups and downs of their adoption journey and Paul and Diana are no exception. Paul and Diana experienced the heartbreak and devastation that came with a failed adoption; despite the pain and despair they went through, they never lost hope that the birth mom that was meant to be theirs was out there. When they connected with their birth mom, Alicia for the first time, they were cautious but overjoyed. Like many adoptions, this connection had a rocky start but as time went on, Paul, Diana and Alicia developed a strong and unique bond. Paul and Diana’s family grew to be much bigger than just a new baby. When sweet Joseph was born in October, their hearts were full and appreciation for their birth mother grew more intense than ever! Paul and Diana have been through so much on their adoption journey. Serving and accompanying them on their journey has been one of our biggest joys. We could not be happier for Everlasting’s newest family! Congratulations to all!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Courtney

BA Drewes

Good things come to those who wait! The wait may be unbearable at times and your destiny can be uncertain. Just when she had thought she had run out of perseverance, Courtney received the call that a birth mom was interested in getting to know her. Courtney had already experienced much heartache with a failed adoption.  Much to her surprise, her birth mom was due in just a few short weeks, and it seemed like there would not be enough time to prepare. Due to the devastation she faced with her failed adoption months earlier, she cautiously dipped her toes into the waters of this connection and held her breath. Courtney’s life completely changed on July 19th, when her daughter Olivia Taylor was born. The journey may have been excruciatingly difficult at times, but when all 19 inches and 7lbs of Olivia were placed in Courtney’s arms, we are certain that the rough road made sense, and the path was clear. This beautiful baby girl was the daughter that Courtney was meant to have. Adoption can be trying, but anything worth having is worth waiting for! Courtney and Olivia, we are honored to be a part of your life and your story, and we can only imagine the adventures that lay before you both!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Christy and Adam

Adam and Christy had always envisioned adoption being a part of their pathway as parents. Like many couples, they had high hopes of adopting after having biological children of their own. When they faced an uphill battle, adoption became part of their journey sooner than they had thought. They were elated when they got the call on their 12 year anniversary that they were being welcomed into the Everlasting family. Plans changed when they were connected to a birth mom and took a step back from their work with Everlasting to explore this connection. They welcomed their first son John into the world in July of 2014. When they felt ready to adopt again, we began working with birth moms once again to find John a sibling! Adam and Christy experienced many ups and downs in their journey, as many adoptive parents do. After several failed connections and close calls, things all fell into place when they were connected with their birth mom, Chelsie. They had the opportunity to meet Chelsie and her family and hit it off wonderfully! Shortly after returning home, they were surprised with the news that baby would be coming much sooner than expected. On August 8th, Andrew was born and John became one of the cutest big brother’s ever!! We can not thank Christy and Adam enough for trusting Everlasting to help build their family. That gratitude extends even further for their birth mom, Chelsie for allowing us the opportunity to help her when she knew that parenting was not the best decision for Andrew or her and her children. Happy Birthday, Andrew! We can’t wait to see what kind of trouble you and your brother get into!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Lattrice and Michael

BA Goldsby

Michael and Lattrice joined the Everlasting family at the end of 2015. They dreamed of becoming parents, sharing their passions and seeing the world through the eyes of their child. They wanted nothing more than to travel, go to sporting events, and most of all,  share their love of reading with their child. They entrusted Everlasting to help them connect with a birth mom. Michael and Lattrice had a rocky road during their adoption journey. They had several potential birth moms, some who they decided were not the right fit and some birth moms who decided that her path was going in a different direction. The wait was challenging and without a map to guide them, sometimes it didn’t make sense. That all changed in May, when they were contacted about a birth mom named, Skyler. Michael, Lattrice and Sky spent time getting to know each other and connecting. Sky and her son travelled to visit Michael and Lattrice and being together sealed the deal. They were a match! One month later, at 10:08 pm, on July 30th, Sky delivered a beautiful baby girl. Michael and Lattrice named her Mia Skyler. Just 8 days later, they cleared ICPC and were headed home! Their journey was 19 months and at times the wait was frustrating and difficult, but worth it. We hope that baby Mia, Lattrice and Michael truly live a life full of love, joy and that this is their happily ever after.
