Lifeline Children’s Services Continues to Support Vulnerable Families

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Lifeline Children’s Services, the largest evangelical adoption agency in the United States, continues to care for vulnerable families both domestically and internationally as Americans await the definitive Supreme Court opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

“The Church must be prepared to meet this moment for both the born and unborn in our nation. Organizations like Lifeline are equipped to support families searching for hope and provide them options that affirm the dignity of every life. We have the services in place to care for everyone – we are ready to serve the vulnerable families and to support them at all stages,” said Lifeline Children’s Services President and Executive Director Herbie Newell.

Lifeline Children’s Services is the largest Evangelical Christian adoption agency in America, with offices in 16 states. It serves vulnerable children and families through private domestic and international adoption, family restoration, and pregnancy counseling.


While Lifeline is not affiliated with any denomination, it was created to support pregnancy counseling and adoption work in 1981 by Briarwood Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, Alabama. Lifeline’s headquarters remain in Birmingham. In 2000, Lifeline expanded its ministry to international adoption, starting in China. Each year, additional countries have been added to its ministry, and now Lifeline is presently involved in 18 countries.
