New Hope Journey – Lifeline’s Individual List

 

Lifeline Children’s Services is very excited to announce a new opportunity for families seeking to adopt Special Focus children! We have been invited to participate in the New Hope Journey Program by the CCCWA. This program will give Lifeline exclusive access to many additional special focus files each month from designated provinces.

These children below are assigned exclusively to Lifeline. We are honored to advocate specifically for these children.

If you are interested in any of the children below, please contact Jenna Parker at Jenna.parker@lifelinechild.org or please call: 205-940-4707. If you are already a Lifeline family, please contact your social worker that you are currently working with for more information about the child you are interested in below.

All information and content included on this website, including but not limited to text, graphics, logos, icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads is the property of the owner, or in some cases, a shared list supplier. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, publish, or sell any information from this website without the expressed written consent of Lifeline Children’s Services.

We work with a wonderful organization, the International Adoption Clinic at UAB, located in Birmingham, AL, that can help you learn what might be involved medically with each child before you adopt. The International Clinic can also provide physical and occupational therapy as well as medical expertise after you adopt your child. They are wonderful in helping your family to be better prepared for your special needs child as well as a wonderful place to take your child after you return home from China.

**To be matched with one of these children you will need to have a dossier in China within 6 months.**

**Please note that we are publishing only when a child has been matched and PA (preliminary approval) has been received from China. Lifeline will maintain internal “holds” for children and continue to form a list of interest as requests are received**
