Here at Lifeline, I work on the domestic side of things. I focus on families here in Alabama who desire to minister to birth parents and adopt domestically. Because of this, I was very excited to serve at Kids Camp. I was excited to see firsthand another side of Lifeline’s ministry and put faces to

This past weekend was our first time to volunteer at Lifeline’s Kids Camp. While the ten hosted children from Nanjing, China, may have been the reason we came, we walked away keenly aware of several life lessons.

There have been many words that have entered my mind as I have spent time at Kid’s Camp.  But, the ones that keep coming back to me are brave and future. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to accompany the 10 children, here at Kid’s Camp, as they made a visit to the eye doctor. I

It’s hard to imagine what going to sleep in one country and waking up in another country might be like, but for ten sweet, precious, little ones from China, today started their adventures in America.
