Adoption Stories

“When it became clear to my husband and me that adoption was the way God wanted to bless us with a child, He led us to New Life!  Once we were chosen by a birth mom, we were able to meet with her at the New Life office, and she gave us the exciting news that she was having a girl!  The relationship that formed over the next month allowed us to better know her, the birth father, and her family.  By trusting that God had all things in His control, we were then able to experience the birth of our beautiful daughter and we continue to have a close relationship with her birth family.  New Life has offered us encouragement, advice and hope.  We are so thankful that God led us to these precious ladies and their wonderful ministry.” — Michael and Abby

“We began the process of adoption with a mixture of fear and elation. We knew we were about to experience what a real walk of faith would entail. The staff at New Life not only nurtured, guided and supported our birth-mother but they also prayed, communicated and simply encouraged us. Throughout the process of adopting our daughter, they continually reminded us of the Sovereignty of God. We will forever be indebted to New Life for allowing the Lord to use them to change our lives forever.” — Gavin and Lisa

“Have you ever prayed for a situation in your life to be “perfect”? When my husband and I decided to adopt for the third time that was my prayer…that when He blessed us with a baby everything would be “perfect”. Our journey began with a referral to New Life that should not have happened in the natural.  Every time I look at my sweet baby boy, I know that God’s plan was for us to have each other and I am filled with an extraordinary peace that could come only from Him.” — Matt and Rachel 

“After meeting with three different adoption agencies, we felt God lead us to New Life, even though they are a four-hour drive from our hometown.  The years of experience the staff at New Life share is invaluable as a new adoptive parent.  Our experience was nothing but positive; from the extensive education and training, to the encouragement and personal touch, New Life has made what could be a nerve-racking experience into a smooth transition.  Their ministry to mothers in crisis pregnancies is truly a service to the Lord from their hearts, and their ministry to adoptive couples is like none we’ve found anywhere else.  We are thankful to New Life for the direction they provide on both sides of the adoption relationship.  Without their help and expertise, we know we could not have the relationship that we share today with our daughter’s birth mother.  New Life definitely gives “new life” to many families and many expectant mothers.  WE LOVE NEW LIFE!” — Jon and Denise 

“Not only were we blessed by New Life’s heart for women who are in crisis pregnancy situations, as a couple beginning the journey to adopt, New Life’s years of experience was so comforting to us.  There are many aspects of adoption that we simply had never thought through, or considered.  We definitely had so much to learn.  We were very impressed with the training we received from New Life.  After our baby was placed in our home, we realized that there was really nothing that we felt or experienced that New Life had not addressed through our training and one on one meetings with the agency.  Their wisdom is so valuable.  It is truly wonderful to see an agency devoted to loving and caring for birth moms while also loving and caring for adoptive parents.” — Clint and Bekah 

“Our experience with adoption through New Life has been wonderful.  We have been forever blessed with two precious little boys that God has used to grow our family and to teach us about what unconditional love is really all about.  New Life was remarkable at facilitating the process through supporting us, ministering to our birth families, and guiding us all to a true understanding that getting a child is not all there is to the adoption process.  It’s about faith and being open to the beautiful journey that God has in store.” — Steve and Elizabeth
