WAITING FAMILIES

Choosing the right family for your child is a huge step!

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. 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.

Ashton & Lindsay

Hello, we are Lindsey, Ashton and Ava! Ashton & Lindsey have been together since 2005 and are high school sweethearts. They got married in 2012 after both graduating college. Ashton began working in oil & gas and Lindsey was a dedicated elementary school teacher for 5 years. They were able to have their 5-year-old daughter, Ava, via IVF in 2017.

Lindsey and Ashton so love being parents and want to continue to grow their family. They felt God led them to explore adoption after having such a difficult time getting pregnant with Ava. They are so excited about this next journey to adopt now! Ava prays nightly for her baby brother or sister. She will be the best sister!

Ashton, Lindsey, and Ava are an active family who love to get out and enjoy adventures! They are sports fans and cheer for the Astros, Texans and Denver Broncos! They love to stay busy and take trips to the beach, explore the outdoors, go swimming, and do fun activities like mini golf, bowling, and playing games. They also love to spend time with their beloved dog, Kali Beth. Lindsey and Ashton live near their parents and get to spend lots of time with all of them.

Lindsey is now a stay at home mom and is involved in mothering groups through their local church. She also loves being able to take Ava to the zoo, play dates, children’s museums, and story time. Lindsey has also used many of her teaching abilities with Ava to help her be successful when she enters elementary school. Lindsey, Ashton and Ava cannot wait to add a new baby to their loving family. They have so much love to give and have created such a wonderful life together and are so ready to share it with another sweet baby!

Brian & Tiffany

Hello! We are Brian, Tiffany, Olivia and Kate. We look forward to sharing a little about our family as we excitedly prepare to add to our family through adoption!

We met through a mutual friend in Florida in 2011 and were married in 2012! Tiffany was working as a live-in nanny and Brian as an engineer. We moved to Texas a couple years later in hopes to live closer to family as we started a family of our own. Since then, we have added 2 beautiful girls to our family. Olivia was born in 2014 and Kate in 2017. We also have a sweet pup named Izzy who joined our family in 2021.

We both grew up in Christian homes and our faith is very important to us. We are active in our church and enjoy many different opportunities to serve and worship there.

Brian works outside the home as an engineer and Tiffany is a stay at home mom. We homeschool our girls and enjoy the opportunity to learn and grow together! We enjoy traveling as a family, going on field trips together and playing board games. We also love entertaining friends and family!

We pray for the opportunity to meet you and get to know more about you as we move forward towards adoption! Thank you for taking the time to consider our family!

Ryan & Michelle

Hello! We are Ryan and Michelle! We have been waiting and praying for this opportunity to adopt for a long time. We met at Baylor University in 2014 and have been married since 2017.

When we were dating, we talked about our desire to one day adopt. After a few years of marriage, we discovered having children biologically was not going to be easy for us. It was then that we knew the Lord had shut that door, so another one could open. We are thankful the Lord has led us to this place and cannot wait to grow our family through adoption.

Ryan is a cinematographer and films a variety of things with his company! One of the videos he got to work on even played as the intro to the Super Bowl one year! Michelle is an elementary special education resource teacher. She loves working with her students and is passionate about helping every child become a reader and writer! We love to do DIY projects, work in the yard, and spend time with family and friends. We host our Bible Study every Tuesday evening and enjoy having people over. We also love to be active and are constantly finding ways to be outdoors! Our family is extremely important to us and we prioritize spending time with family by doing fun projects, going on family trips, and playing with our sweet nieces.

We know this is a large decision and we want you to know you are supported and cared for regardless of your decision. You are a child of God. We want you to know that if you choose us, we are not just saying yes to your child, but also yes to you and your loved ones!

Daniel & Shannon

Hi there! We are Daniel and Shannon! We met in 2016 through eHarmony and were married a year later in 2017.

Daniel is from Tennessee and currently works as a petroleum engineer. He loves spending time on household DIY projects, going fishing, and rock climbing. He is an excellent cook and enjoys learning how to make dishes from cultures around the world.

Shannon is from California and currently works at a hospital as a wound specialist. She loves spending time in the garden planting, pulling weeds (yes!), and harvesting herbs and fruits. She loves seeing a variety of animals in the yard including frogs, lizards, bumblebees, butterflies, and many species of birds.

We both love sports, trying new escape room challenges, playing board and card games, and finding new favorite places to eat. We enjoy spending time at home with our two dogs who keep us laughing with their goofy personalities. We are eager for future trips as a family to go hiking, camping, and making memories in new places together.

We lead a Bible study group at our home weekly and are involved in our church’s orphan care ministry which supports other families who have or will be fostering or adopting children. God has blessed us with an amazingly supportive community at church whom we consider family. Our greatest desire is for our child to come to know Jesus as their personal Savior as they grow up.

We came to New Life with a desire to adopt through an agency that honors Christ by putting the needs of you and your child first. We want your kiddo to grow up knowing how much their birth family loves them and encourage as much openness in their adoption journey as you’re comfortable with.

We are mindful of the incredibly difficult decision you are making and pray that the Lord would give you peace and strength for whatever path you choose. It is an honor that you would consider our family!

Jared & Danielle

Hello there, you are a hero. If you are reading this it is because you are considering adoption as a possibility for your child and it is not something we take lightly. Our respect for you is immeasurable. We are honored and excited that you are taking the time to get to know us.

We are Danielle and Jared. We met through our college roommates in 2011, our connection was instant, and we began a close friendship that built into a strong marriage. Jared is a civil engineer while Danielle is blessed to be a full-time mom. We live in the country near a small town with our sweet, adventurous daughter who is our miracle gift from God.

Though we got pregnant, we suffered a five-month hospital stay and lengthy complications. We are both confident that another pregnancy is not something we want to pursue, and adoption is our next step to grow our family. We believe is one of our greatest responsibilities as parents to help our children grow their faith and, no matter who we come across, whether they hold our same beliefs or not, to show the same love and care we have been given.

Russell & Talitha

Hello! We are Russell and Talitha, and our story began in 2013 when we met at a church in the United Arab Emirates. We both enjoy learning about different countries and cultures, which came in handy since Talitha grew up in South Africa and Russell in Texas. We got married in 2015 and moved to Texas in 2017.

We have two wonderful daughters, Charlotte and Rosie. As a family, we love spending time outside. We enjoy gardening, going for walks, playing yard games, swimming, hiking, and Russell can’t wait to take our girls camping one day! We also enjoy having friends and family at our house, special traditions, travelling, reading and history.

Russell owns a manufacturing company and Talitha used to work as an operations manager before becoming a stay-at-home mom.

We discussed adoption before we got married and are excited to be on this journey now. We hope to have an open adoption, if you are comfortable with that. Family is very important to us and we would love for you to be a part of that. We pray for peace for you and that you will know how loved you are.
