Michael and Lattrice joined the Everlasting family at the end of 2015. They dreamed of becoming parents, sharing their passions and seeing the world through the eyes of their child. They wanted nothing more than to travel, go to sporting events, and most of all, share their love of reading with their child. They entrusted Everlasting to help them connect with a birth mom. Michael and Lattrice had a rocky road during their adoption journey. They had several potential birth moms, some who they decided were not the right fit and some birth moms who decided that her path was going in a different direction. The wait was challenging and without a map to guide them, sometimes it didn’t make sense. That all changed in May, when they were contacted about a birth mom named, Skyler. Michael, Lattrice and Sky spent time getting to know each other and connecting. Sky and her son travelled to visit Michael and Lattrice and being together sealed the deal. They were a match! One month later, at 10:08 pm, on July 30th, Sky delivered a beautiful baby girl. Michael and Lattrice named her Mia Skyler. Just 8 days later, they cleared ICPC and were headed home! Their journey was 19 months and at times the wait was frustrating and difficult, but worth it. We hope that baby Mia, Lattrice and Michael truly live a life full of love, joy and that this is their happily ever after.
