About India

Lifeline was licensed to facilitate adoptions through India in 2014 and our first families began the process in 2015. Our relationship with the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA), is positive and has continued to strengthen since establishing our program. Since India values relationships, Lifeline’s international program leaders frequently travel to meet with CARA to sustain our positive partnership. Through our adoption program, our team works with specialized adoption agencies all over this beautiful country. CARA cares deeply for the children that are placed for adoption and remain supportive of U.S. families pursuing the adoptions of children with special needs. This program continues to flourish and we are excited to partner with families in the adoption process.


The Need

The country of India has more than 20 million orphans, making it home to the largest population of orphans in the world today.

How We Help

Lifeline began a program to facilitate adoptions from India within the last decade. Lifeline also works alongside ministries within India to minister to the fatherless through orphan care.

Family Testimonial

The Nichols Family

We are thankful to know that we have a team in Birmingham who wants this child welcomed into our family just as much as we do (which is, of course, a whole lot). We know that they are praying for and fighting for our little one with the same fervor and urgency that we are. I can’t imagine going through this process with anyone but Lifeline.
