Meet our Adoption Agency

We have been so blessed by our adoption agency and want to share about who they are………

Lifeline is celebrating 30 years of bringing a hope and a future to orphaned children. Today, they have almost 50 staff members on the phone, in meetings, out in the field.. all working together to find incredible  families for children in need of a loving, caring home. Lifeline has become known in adoption circles for putting the interest of the child first and specializing in quality training and education for our families. As a result they maintain an excellent relationship with adoption authorities both in the US and also in the international countries they serve. Lifeline is now the fastest growing adoption agency in the United States.

Back in 1981, John Carr, a retired social worker approached Wales Goebel, founder of Sav-a-life (a crisis pregnancy ministry), with a desire to begin an adoption agency that would be a viable extension of the crisis pregnancy ministry. Mr. Carr felt the need to provide young girls with an avenue to carry their child to term, and if they so desired, be able to place the child through adoption. The vision was to provide an outreach ministry to mothers in crisis, children needing loving care, and families craving the blessings of a child. Lifeline Children’s Services was founded to find loving, Christian homes for children who were being given the gift of life from their birthmothers.In 1984, Lifeline Villagewas founded to meet not only a young lady’s spiritual needs, but her emotional, physical, social and intellectual ones as well. Many birthmothers needed a refuge and safe haven to retreat to in the wake of a crisis pregnancy. Lifeline Village fills that need by placing girls into a stable and nurturing home environment where consistent love, discipline and direction is given by a married Christian couple who serves as house parents. Lifeline Village contains 2 homes which can house up to eight each, on 80 acres in Pell City, Alabama.In 2000, Lifeline expanded its outreach to International Adoption, developing an International Adoption Program to China, in 2003 Ukraine was added, and later in 2004 Guatemala. Each year additional countries have been added and now Lifeline is presently involved in 12 countries. Through our agency hundreds of orphans from around the globe are being placed into loving Christian homes. Since the founding in 1981, Lifeline has placed almost 2,500 precious orphaned children into loving Christian homes, and ministered to over 3,000 women in crisis. Through all of the God-given resources and facets of our agency, Lifeline seeks to make an investment in the lives of children, mothers in the wake of crisis, families wanting the blessing of a child, and orphans around the globe needing a home in which they can see and hear the Gospel.  Current countries – ColombiaPolandChinaUkrainePeruUgandaHungaryBulgariaCosta RicaHaitiTaiwanDominican RepublicEthiopiaCongo

Throughout the world, there are more than 143 million children who live in orphanages, in over-crowded foster homes, or alone on the streets. In some cases, orphans are well-cared for; however, in most cases, these children are merely reminders of parenting experiences gone terribly wrong. In the best scenarios, orphanages are well-staffed with workers who are tasked with feeding, clothing, and educating children. More commonly, these institutions are grossly understaffed and under-served by those who simply need a job and lack the desire to nurture the orphans. It is a fact that orphanage conditions are not conducive for healthy development or preparation of children to live outside the orphanage walls. “Graduates” are usually released from the institutions around age 16 to make it on their own without the basic tools for survival or training of any kind. Most cannot make themselves a meal, much less a dignified living. In reality, most of the unadopted become trapped in a lifestyle of exploitation and disgraceful servitude. By no fault of their own, these teens soon find themselves subject to a life they could never have imagined – a life in which they are completely unprepared to make it alone.

(Un)adopted exists to make a difference. As a ministry of Lifeline Children’s Services, they are uniquely positioned to initiate effective change. Lifeline has been involved with international adoption since 1999, and was among the first agencies to receive Hague Accreditation. Having led many families through the process of adoption, Lifeline’s leadership became burdened with the circumstances of those children who have been left behind.
