New Beginnings Releases First Edition of “Life at New Beginnings”

May 23, 2015

This spring, we released a new addition to our content collection. Life at New Beginnings is our new bi-annual magazine that features special stories from our forever families, staff, and friends as well as sponsorships from our supporters.

This spring’s edition features Tom and Debbie Velie’s personal adoption story, detailing the struggles and delights of their adoption process. Abbey Swartzendruber also wrote a sweet feature article about her wait for her little sister, Gracie. (If you’ve attended our Celebration of Adoption you’ll recognize the sisters from their fantastic violin duet each year.) A beautiful devotional about transformation was included from Kay Faulkenbery, a biblical counselor.

The next issue will print this fall with a focus on the Nepal Orphan Home and the devastation of the country after the horrible earthquakes. This issue will also serve as the program for the Celebration of Adoption 2015.

We distribute copies to local offices and churches. If you would like to receive the Spring issue or would like to be put on our distribution list, email Alicia Milstead ( with your name and address. To be featured as a sponsor or to have an advertisement in the magazine/program, contact Alicia as well. The deadline for sponsorships is August 15th.
