Life challenges often have a way of making us feel isolated. When families feel alone, they are at risk of allowing their challenges to send them into hopelessness and deterioration.
Lifeline’s heart for families is illustrated in one of its greatest distinctives. Because we care about the health of families before, during, and after adoption and fostering, we have developed training and preparation curriculum to make sure that families are as prepared as possible for the journey ahead. Last year, we provided training, uniquely designed by our staff and based on extensive research, to our 251 international and domestic adoptive families last year. We also offer post-placement support as well as continuing counseling and education so that families have the resources and support they need to remain in the hope of Christ, as He brings healing to each member of their family. In 2017, families were able to receive over 1,200 hours of counseling by Lifeline’s trauma-informed and trained professionals.
Lifeline is unique, and we are privileged to be part of what God is doing around the world and in our backyards.
You have the power of community within your reach, to offer hope to others. When you partner with Lifeline on Giving Day on June 21st you are bring community to families, letting them know they aren’t alone on this journey.
