ADOPTION

 BECAUSE IT'S 

 A NOBLE 

 CHOICE 

We provide support, counseling and advocacy for women considering adoption, as well.  We recognize that for many different reasons you may not feel that parenting is the best decision for you or your child at this time.  Adoption is a brave, loving decision to put the needs of your child above your own, and we believe birth mothers deserve to be honored and respected.  If you are interested in learning more about adoption, we can discuss this option with you and connect you with our agency partner, Lifeline Children's Services, as you explore what adoption could look like for you.

ABOUT LIFELINE:

Lifeline Children's Services is a full-service adoption agency that has been providing holistic care to those impacted by unplanned pregnancy for over 30 years.  Lifeline honors and respects birth parents and is committed to providing non-coercive counseling and support both pre- and post-adoption.

LIFELINE'S MISSION:

Lifeline Children's Services exists to equip the body of Christ to manifest the Gospel to vulnerable children.

 

Lifeline's purpose is to provide a hope and a future through the Gospel for vulnerable children around the world by discipling, engaging and equipping the body of Christ towards adoption, foster care, orphan care and support.

 

Lifeline exists because of what Christ accomplished on the cross.  Christ's death, burial, and resurrection made a way for those who would trust in Him as Savior and Lord to have everlasting Hope.  He died so that we might live, as children of God.

ADOPTION:

Today, adoption looks much different than it did 40 years ago, but there are still many misconceptions about adoption based on outdated adoption trends.  Each adoption is unique, but Lifeline is able to facilitate open, semi-open, and confidential adoptions based on the preferences of the birth parents.

 

Birth parents can choose what they want their adoption to look like and be as involved in planning their adoption as they would like.  Lifeline gives every birth parent the opportunity to choose the adoptive family based on their specific preferences.  Birth parents can meet with the adoptive family face-to-face prior to placement and maintain contact after the adoption, according to their desires.
