WAITING FAMILIES

You can choose a family for your child!

The following families are currently waiting to adopt through New Life Adoptions. Only a few of our families are posted on our website right now, but more are creating their online profiles even as we write.

Every adoptive family we work with is thoroughly screened, financially prepared, and has agreed ahead of time to an open adoption (if that’s what you choose). Also, all of our families live in the great state of Texas! We think they are pretty amazing, and we know you will too!

Please contact us for further information on other families available and more detailed information on families currently waiting. We look forward to hearing from you.

Drew & Gracie

Hello! We are Drew and Gracie. We first want to say that God loves you. It is a very courageous and sacrificial thing to explore adoption and we feel very humbled to be a part of it. We can’t imagine all of the emotions you might be feeling, but God sees you and will never leave you. We already admire your faith and would be honored to meet you.

We have been married for over 5 wonderful years and enjoy quality time with one another, being outdoors, and a living a joyful life. Our church, families and friends are very important to us. We have been drawn to adoption for quite some time. We met through mutual friends in 2016 in Drew’s hometown, Savannah GA. We moved to Texas in 2017 and Drew works in full time college ministry while Gracie runs her own wedding photography business. We both work from home and have flexible schedules.

Our hobbies include: cooking, getting lost in a good book, travel, being outdoors, and creativity. We can’t wait to be parents and feel so ready.

God opened a door for us to consider adoption for our first child and we feel so excited for this next chapter in our lives. We pray for you daily and we are thankful for how your story intersects with ours.

J.R. & Amy-Ellen

As you consider the best option for your child, know that adoption is such a loving and brave choice. We have so much respect for you.

We’re J.R. and Amy-Ellen. Being parents is a long awaited dream and we love it! Our kids – Belle, Sophie, Jeffrey, & Ana love babies and are just as excited as we are, about the possibility of a new baby joining our family.

We were married in 2010 & just celebrated 13 years of marriage – the happiest years of our lives. J.R. is now an IT Professional for an oil & gas company, while I’m blessed to be a stay at home mom.

We love music, karaoke, exploring museums, trips to the zoo & the beach, camping, having friends over, cooking together, good movies, and laughing together. God has been so kind to us.

We love the Lord Jesus and are so grateful that He has adopted us into His family. We have always wanted to adopt, we talked about it even before we were married or had our biological kids. We look forward to loving on any baby that God brings into our family.

Tim & Meaghan

Hi! We are Tim and Meaghan. We have been married for over 17 years and have a beautiful 5-year-old daughter named Lily. We have lived in Texas for just about a year and have been loving getting to know the area.

We love to travel, go to amusement parks, watch movies and play board games at home. We also enjoy playgrounds, the zoo, and trying new restaurants. We are active members in our local church and enjoy being in a loving and supportive community.

Both of us are very close to our parents and siblings, and we try to see each other as often as possible, especially for holidays and special occasions. Everyone is excited to welcome a new baby into the family and can’t wait to love and cherish them. Our hope is to see our new son or daughter grow and thrive as an image-bearer of the one true God.

We are praying for you as you choose a family for your child and would love to be blessed with the greatest gift you could ever give. Your courage and bravery in making this choice is humbling and we greatly admire this tough decision you have made.

Mark & Colleen

Hello! We want to start by saying- we hope while you are reading this that you feel cared for and loved. You are courageous and we want you to know that.

Mark and I met in 2013 while teaching overseas and started off as good friends. One way that we connected early on were the staff basketball games we played with co-workers. Our friendship grew, we eventually started dating, and married in 2015. The rest is history! Since our teaching days, Colleen has gone on to become a Registered Nurse and has almost completed Nurse Practitioner school, and Mark is a school counselor.

We have always been drawn to adoption believing that the Lord has opened our hearts to this. Our family dynamic started in 2018 when we started fostering. We had the privilege of caring for a few different children through the years, and in 2021 our daughter Evie was born. We are now opening our home to grow our family through adoption, and we realize there is both joy and sadness in this process. We want to be supportive of you as you navigate this.

Spending quality time with family and going on adventures with our little Evie are very important to us! We also like to travel for fun, have game nights, watch movies as a family, cook together, and enjoy the outdoors. Mark still plays basketball once a week and Colleen likes to work out as well. Our church community is very important to us, and our daughter loves going and playing with the other kids. Our church is intentional about being multi-ethnic and we love that there are so many families there who have also adopted and/or foster.

We look forward to meeting you and are already hoping the best for you and baby!

Tammie & Richie
Hi, we hope first and foremost that you know how loved you already are by us and the Lord. Your decision in choosing life is made from complete love and total bravery.
We are Richie, Tammie, and Maggie. Richie and I met and fell in love in 2013 and were married the following year. It has taken time, heartache, and joy to grow our family, but the Lord is, and always will be, faithful. Maggie was born in 2020 and she has been the biggest blessing to us and our family. Life is sweeter with her in it and she cannot wait to be a big sister!
We love to be outside, in the gardens, going on hikes and walks, camping, or building our dreams on our land. We are animal lovers and have dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and rabbits. Both sides of our family live very close so we are able to spend time with both sides often, loving each moment together!
Our church and faith in the Lord holds us to the truth of our salvation through Jesus Christ. We are nothing without Him and are daily reminded of the grace He poured out when He adopted us into His family.
Your story will always be a part of our home and family. Your selfless love and bravery shines through. We pray each night for you and are ready to walk along side you in this journey!

Hello! We are Jose and Rebecca, and we are so excited to get the opportunity to become parents and to grow our family through the beautiful process of adoption. We have both always wanted to adopt and have known, even before we got married, that we would want to pursue adoption in the future.

We originally met while playing soccer at Texas A&M University and have been married for almost 7 years. Rebecca is a small animal veterinarian who works with dogs and cats and is passionate about caring for animals. Jose is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Christian Leadership and is looking forward to being a stay-at-home dad.

In our spare time, we love traveling, hiking, visiting national parks, music, sports, board games, spending time with friends, good movies, and just having fun together. We are both very close with our families and spend as much time with them as possible. We value being involved in a church community, and both enjoy being connected with other couples in our life group, as well as being leaders in the student ministry at our church.

We are so thankful for you and your heart to consider adoption. We are beyond grateful that you have chosen life for your sweet little baby. Making the decision to place your child for adoption is such a brave and sacrificial act. We are praying for peace and clarity in your decision-making process. Thank you very much for taking the time to read about us and learn about our little family. We are so excited to become parents, and we can’t wait to begin loving any child God chooses to bring into our home!

Valoramos estar involucrados en una comunidad de la iglesia y ambos disfrutamos estar conectados con otras parejas en nuestro grupo de vida, además de ser líderes en el ministerio estudiantil de nuestra iglesia.

Drew & Gracie

Dear expectant mother, we can’t begin this without first saying how humbled we are that you are considering adoption. We can only imagine all of the emotions that you may be having as you are going through this process. It is a very courageous and sacrificial thing to explore adoption and we feel very humbled to be a part of it. We are even more humbled that you would consider us as potential parents of your precious baby. That being said, we are so grateful for you and the decision that you have made.

We are Gracie and Drew. We have been on the journey of starting our family for quite some time. We’ve always talked about potentially adopting one day but through our struggle with getting pregnant and news of infertility, God opened a door for us to consider adoption much sooner. As we pursued adoption though learning about it and seeking counsel from friends, we feel an affirmation from God this is how He wants to grow our family. We believe this journey is God inviting our hearts to believe He has a plan for you, this baby, and us, and His plans are always for good.

We met through friends in 2016 in Drew’s hometown, Savannah GA. Drew immediately felt a connection to Gracie and eventually she let him take her on a date, after some persistence! Drew works in full time college ministry. Gracie runs her own wedding photography business, serving clients near and far. We have been married for 5 years and feel so ready to step into this next chapter. We pray for you daily. We are thankful for how your story intersects with our lives.
