Kevin and Ansley began pursuing adoption through Lifeline’s India program and were soon matched with a little boy named Sahil. As the Gwyns neared their adoption date, our Lifeline team learned that Sahil had become dangerously ill. He was in the hospital, fighting for his life. Armed with this unexpected and tragic news, the Gwyns knew they must fight for his life.
Many times financial barriers can be an obstacle to families embarking on an adoption journey. We understand that funding an international adoption is daunting, so Lifeline strives to provide support and relief, whenever possible, for families.
