About Latvia

Lifeline has had an adoption program in Latvia since April 2017. Latvia allows families the opportunity to pursue children available for adoption between the ages of 9 and 15. We anticipate children who are older to have more basic delays, while the younger children available will have more minor to moderate special needs. Large and small sibling groups are be available for adoption. Latvia is a smooth and well-defined adoption process.

The Need

There are numerous children and sibling groups in the orphanage and foster care systems waiting to be adopted.

How You Can Help

Lifeline is beginning to open up our Latvia program. We are now seeking a strong, missional-minded pilot family to help us learn and navigate this program.
