New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Jessica and Jonathan

Jessica Jonathan BA

When Jessica and Jonathan got THE call, they had only been with Everlasting for 6 short months. There was a birth mom named Lucia who was interested in getting to know them and from that point on, an extremely unique and special connection began. With both Jessica and Jonathan and their birth mom being just a few hours away from each other and in the same state, they had the extraordinary opportunity to develop a deep relationship with Lucia. Not only were they able to get to know Lucia on so many different levels, they were able to get to know her little boy as well. They enjoyed many outings together. From golfing and swimming to apple picking and magic shows, there was never a lack of laughter and smiles when they were around each other! They of course made sure to gather for meals, eating everyone’s favorite foods! Lucia, Jessica and Jonathan spent so much time also getting to know the precious baby boy that was kicking away in her belly. They even went to ultrasounds together. Boy did they get the surprise of their life when at one ultrasound they were told the baby was a girl and then later found out it was a boy!  

This time together allowed them to share so much about their lives and provided love and support that went much farther than their adoption. Knowing that having an open adoption was crucial to Lucia’s adoption plan, being able to spend so much time together allowed them to learn so much about each other and build a strong foundation for their future.

It is not unusual to face some challenges in an adoption plan and this was no exception, but one thing was certain, there was so much love and compassion surrounding this connection. Lucia was induced on August 2nd and just hours after being admitted, around 3pm, she delivered a beautiful baby boy. Briceton Noah weighed 7lbs 2oz and had a head full of gorgeous dark hair! When confronted with the reality that this sweet boy was here, Lucia struggled to say good bye. She had decided that parenting was the right decision and said goodbye to Jonathan and Jessica. Jessica and Jonathan were devastated, but honored Lucia’s change of heart. They were shocked when she called and said she had changed her mind again and would like to place him with them. They were elated and moved forward with their adoption plan full force.

 Connections like this are unique and not always does an adoptive family get to know their birth mother so well. We know this was not easy and at some points it felt like things would not ever work out, but the strength of the relationship that was built persevered through it all. We commend Lucia and applaud her strength and courage to make the decision she felt in her heart was right for her son. Jessica and Jonathan never gave up hope even when people told them things might not work out. Miracles happen every day, and Briceton, your momma is right. You are a lot of miracle in such a little boy.

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Samantha and Jeremy

ORiley BA

Samantha and Jeremy made the decision to join the Everlasting Family in May of 2016. They were both overjoyed when in March a birth mom named Crystal was interested in getting to know them. While we always hope for the smoothest connection possible, there can often be hiccups and road bumps and this connection was no exception. With love and guidance, we all waited together alongside Samantha and Jeremy and weathered the storms that occurred. Emotions and tensions ran high from time to time, but none of that mattered when they got the call that Crystal was in labor. The fear and uncertainty seemed miles away when Samantha and Jeremy laid eyes on their son for the very first time. On July 17th, a bouncing baby boy, Nathan Edward, entered the world. Life for Samantha and Jeremy would never be the same! We admire the patience and strength that Jeremy and Samantha possessed. Nathan has completed their family and our hearts could not be fuller for them. We have the deepest respect and gratitude for birth mom Crystal for allowing us to stand by her side and connect her with Samantha and Jeremy. Happy Birthday, Nathan! You are one perfect little boy!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Sonya and Roderick

20170707 094855Sonya and Roderick joined the Everlasting family in August 2016 when they decided that adoption would be the best way to grow their family. Roderick himself was adopted, and the similarities between Roderick’s story and Apollos’ story were serendipitous. Much like Apollos, Roderick’s birth mom also made the decision to place him for adoption. Roderick and Apollos were also the 5th child, and while his birth mom faced a lack of support for her decision, she decided this was the best decision for him. Amy felt the same for Apollos. Roderick enjoys a good and healthy relationship with his birth mother and siblings! He still visits with his birth mother. As Apollos’ birth parents wrestled with this decision, Sonya and Roderick, waited with grace and patience. When they met the first time, just before Apollos was born, they spent hours laughing and getting to know each other.  When a second wave of uncertainty came over Amy and her partner, Sonya and Roderick once again waited, prayed and kept the faith that what was meant to be, would be. Ultimately, it was decided, that Apollos was destined to be Sonya and Roderick’s son. Everyone welcomed Apollos Craig on June 18th at 11:41 p.m. He was 8lbs 1 oz, and 20.5 inches of beautiful baby boy! During their 11 month journey, their patience was tested, but their strength and hope carried them through. We cannot thank Apollos' birth parents enough for their selflessness and love for their son.

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Amber and Jeremy

Amber Jeremy Baby

When Amber and Jeremy married, they knew they were ready to grow their family and have a baby. Amber spent much of her young adult life baby sitting and dreamed of becoming a mother from a young age. Her passion to be a mother only flourished as a nanny. As they tried to have a child, they faced many roadblocks and challenges. They both were diagnosed with infertility but continued to fight and exhaust every option available to them. It was during this time Amber realized the only thing she wanted was to be a mommy. It was in that moment they decided to pursue adoption.

This decision left them with great peace. With their families support behind them, Amber and Jeremy decided to work with Everlasting in September of 2016. While the wait felt agonizing, it was not long before Amber and Jeremy reached out to us about a potential but challenging birth mom situation they were presented with in May.  Amber initially communicated with birth mom, Katy, and she just KNEW in her heart that this was their birthmom and their baby. Amber and Jeremy continued to get to know Katy and felt bonded and connected from the start. Their hearts constantly felt love and gratefulness for not only their birthmom but their genuine connection. Less than a month after they connected, and only 10 months after deciding to enlist Everlasting’s help, Amber and Jeremy welcomed their baby boy, Canaan Reign, to the world on May 31st. Canaan was 20 ¾ inches and weighed 7lbs 11oz. We know that battling infertility combatted how difficult the wait was, but we are certain that every moment was worth it. Congratulations from everyone at Everlasting to Amber & Jeremy on your amazing little boy. Canaan is beautiful, strong and as his name means, he is truly the promised land.

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Veronica and Carlos

BA Garcia

When Veronica and Carlos joined the Everlasting family in June of 2016, I don't think they realized just how quickly their lives would change! Veronica and Carlos always dreamed of having a son. When they got the call March 1st that birth mom Liz was interested in getting to know them, they couldn't believe it! 
 
This connection was serendipitous. Veronica and Carlos had just painted their nursery two weeks prior to their first contact with Liz! Liz battled with constant uncertainty about her decision to place her baby for adoption. Veronica and Carlos entered into this connection knowing that she may change her mind but pressed forward building a relationship based on complete transparency and openness with Liz. They consistently and honestly supported Liz's deep reflection on her decision. 
 
As their relationship developed and they got to know one another, Liz felt more confident that she was making the best decision possible for her and her baby boy. On March 17th around 9 am at 7 lbs 10oz and 2 weeks before his due date, Logan came into this world! Liz spent some private time with Logan before deciding to move forward. 
 
Veronica and Carlos got the call that he was here and made their way to not only meet their son but spend time with their birth mom as well! Logan was welcomed into a huge family full of love and longing! We are so grateful to have been a part of this connection. It was amazing to see this relationship grow feel the constant love and support Veronica and Carlos had for their birth mom, even though there was some uncertainty. Thank you to Liz for her honesty and openness through her own journey. Veronica and Carlos, we are so happy for you! Happy Birthday, Logan!

New Birth Announcement - Congratulations to Keith and Liz

BA KeithLiz

Keith and Liz joined the Everlasting family in November of 2014. They already had two wonderful sons but yearned to add to their family. Their adoption journey was filled with ups and downs as many journeys are. There were many times they questioned their path as connections failed. In August of 2016 they were connected with their birth mom Janis and while her due date was a bit far off, everything started to fall into place. 
 
They spent the next 7 months getting to know each other and building a solid foundation for a loving relationship. They comforted Janis through many ups and downs in her own journey. In October Keith, Liz and big brothers found out they were expecting a little baby girl! With excitement and full hearts they anxiously awaited her arrival. 
 
Sweet baby Katharine was born on March 9th! We couldn't be happier for Keith, Liz and Katharine's big brothers! Adoption can be a scary road full of uncertainty but we cherish the opportunity to not only have helped grow their family but comforted and supported them through their journey as well. We are forever grateful to birth mom Janis for her love not only for Katharine but Keith and Liz as well. We look forward to watching this newly created family grow and the many adventures life will continue throw everyone's way! Congratulations Keith and Liz! Thank you, Janis! Happy Birthday, Katharine Jane!
