Lifeline Waiting Children

Lifeline has the privilege to advocate for these precious children, whose files are currently held by the foundations we partner with in Bulgaria. These foundations also partner with other agencies and share these files with them as well.  We strive to keep this list as updated as possible, but availability of these children is not guaranteed.

If you interested in one of these precious children, please contact Stephanie Betsch at stephanie.betsch@lifelinechild.org and she will be able to provide you with the most recent information available.
