5 Families Show What Happens When You Support Adoption

Money should never be the reason a child doesn’t have a family.

But unfortunately, lack of funds is the top reason that only 5% of Christian families have actually adopted, though 38% have considered it.

That’s where people like you come in. Because God calls each one of us to care for the orphaned and vulnerable, we all have a part to play in helping orphans become sons and daughters. Supporters like you are just as important as the families into which children are adopted!

With support from people like you, Lifesong offers adoption financial assistance to help Christian families overcome the financial barriers of adoption and to help more orphans become sons & daughters! Generous givers have helped over 9,000 children (and counting!) be welcomed into loving, Christian families.

Your gifts to Lifesong make stories like these possible…


Our adoption experience with Lifesong was life-changing.

Our Maren wouldn’t be home with us today if it weren’t for Lifesong believing in us and supporting our journey.

You only need one person to believe in you, and although we had a huge community behind us, Lifesong propelled us forward for our first steps.

Lifesong was so responsive and helpful each time we contacted them. When we got matched with the grant, they made everything clear and easy to follow about our responsibility in the process. The Lifesong staff is genuinely passionate about their role in adoption and in helping families. Their joy was contagious and made us excited about our journey.”

Little Maron came home in February 2020.

We are so thankful for Lifesong and their various opportunities to raise money!

We are grateful that they partnered with our local church to facilitate a matching grant. It was crucial in helping us chip away at the over $45,000 adoption expenses.”

Brian & Bethany brought home Desmond in February 2020.

Lifesong’s interest-free loan was such an important part of helping our adoption move with less stress.

Adopting a child can be a daunting task. The emotional and often financial toll can be difficult and that all takes place before day 1 of coming home with your child! Having funds available to us through Lifesong really helped ease the burden.

God hand-walked us through this difficult process, but one area that really helped was our church family’s love, support, and encouragement.

Little Caleb came home from South Korea in December 2019.

Money should never be the reason a child doesn’t have a family.


Our adoption was full of frustrating setbacks and delays. Ultimately, our adoption took over 6 years. But Lifesong was a consistent bright spot in our adoption journey!

While our expenses mounted up, we always knew we could count on Lifesong’s matching grant. Knowing we had this extremely helpful financial assistance provided some security for us.

We now see how God orchestrated the entire journey to put our two precious boys into our arms!”

Kristopher & Julie brought home Matthew & Jethro from Uganda in June 2020.

Lifesong has been an amazing source of help in our adoption journey.

They provided us an incredibly generous matching grant and giving us a platform to fundraise so that those who donated could receive tax deduction benefits! It has also been such a delight working with their staff, as they have been a huge encouragement to us through this whole process! We praise the Lord for Lifesong and the gift that they are.

A cool moment in our story—we had someone donate $25,000 towards our adoption! It was the parents of an old friend from high school. It was overwhelming to see God move their hearts to give toward our adoption!”

Boaz came home in October 2019.


Once the financial barrier of adoption is removed, families can focus on what really matters: helping an orphan become a son or daughter.
