National Adoption Month 2012 recipients of pro bono services, David and Melissa, were high school sweethearts, married for 19 years, who had been trying to adopt for 4 years prior to partnering with ANLC. In March 2013, they accepted an adoption opportunity with a baby boy who had just been born and in July 2013, David, Melissa and their son, Brian, officially became a forever family with the finalization of their adoption.
National Adoption Month 2013 recipients of pro bono services, Toby and Stephanie have always wanted a family. Having served around the world on mission trips, they have always had adoption in their hearts as well. When they found out they could not conceive naturally, they knew that their desire for a family would be fulfilled through adoption. Toby and Stephanie are currently waiting to become a forever family.
National Adoption Month 2014 recipients of pro bono services, Michael and Preslie met and fell in love while working in a group home for adults with disabilities. Both went on to become elementary special education teachers. After 5 years of trying to start their family, they made the life changing decision to adopt. In July 2015, they welcomed their son, Walter, into their family.
National Adoption Month 2015 recipients of pro bono services had to put their adoption journey on hold earlier this year.
