We believe adoption is one way God provides families for vulnerable children who need to know the love of Christ, and the love of family. We desire to walk alongside Christian missional families through the adoption journey and provide them with resources as they love, nurture, and disciple their children.
Lifeline families see the big picture of adoption — part of God’s redemptive purpose and His divine work to set the lonely into families.
The Need Is Great. Will You Answer the Call?
Every day, vulnerable children become neglected, abandoned, and orphaned. Orphan numbers continue to rise, but at the same time, the pandemic has slowed the number of families willing to enter into the adoption process.
Today is the day to share the love of Christ with the vulnerable. Hurting, confused, and neglected children need Jesus, and they need you.
