BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Lifeline Children’s Services on Tuesday, the first day of National Adoption Month, announced they have received their Child Placement Agency Licensure in the state of Oklahoma. Lifeline worked alongside Oklahoma Human Services for the last 11 months before receiving its license, making this the 17th state where Lifeline is accredited to help care for vulnerable children and families.
“We are thankful for the impact we will be able to make as we partner with the local Oklahoma community and churches to help care for vulnerable women, children and families,” said Lifeline Children’s Services President and Executive Director Herbie Newell.
Lifeline is now able to provide home study services for families in Oklahoma who are pursuing international or domestic adoption. “In addition, as we build our team, we will have pregnancy counselors on the ground to meet with women facing an unexpected pregnancy and become an active resource for local pregnancy centers and hospitals that connect with women seeking adoption resources. Lastly, because we partner so closely with the local church, we will be able to deepen relationships with pastors and church staff to better serve their communities through our church-based programs,” said Newell.
Lifeline Children’s Services is the largest Evangelical Christian adoption agency in America, with offices in 17 states. It serves vulnerable children and families through domestic and international adoption, family restoration, pregnancy counseling, education and counseling services.
