Lifeline has had an adoption program in Macedonia since January of 2015. Macedonia allows families the opportunity to pursue children available for adoption between ages of 1 year and 15 years. We anticipate children who are older with minor to moderate and significant special needs to be made available for adoption. Matches are made through a computer generated system. The Macedonian Adoption Authority is the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
There are numerous children in the orphan system divided between several different homes where the care they receive is very minimal.
How We Help
Lifeline is beginning to open up our Macedonia program. We are seeking now for a strong pilot family to help us navigate this program.
