Adoption: A Mission Moment with Lifesong for Orphans

13-6 MM Email

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:5 (NLT)

Adoption. One of the most beautiful pieces of the Gospel. An all-powerful and loving Father God chose us, in our sinfulness, to be His sons and daughters. Does it get any better than that? The fact that we, as Christians, can replicate this relationship in our own families to tell the Gospel through our lives is an complete honor and joy.


“WE SAID YES TO ADOPTION” // Andy & Laura’s Story

Andy and Laura, adoptive parents of Eli from Ethiopia shared how God provided every step of the way, crushing fears and showing that HE is faithful to finish what He starts.

Part of God’s provision came from Lifesong and its partner, Legacy 685 Adoption Fund, helping this family financially with a matching grant and funding support.


Meet Volodya and Lyliya, one of the many Ukrainian families blessed by Adoption without Borders, an initiative that intentionally links like-minded families and churches in the USA with Christian families in Ukraine who are seeking to adopt.

    Our church has, within the last year or so, had the honor of partnering with a sweet young couple as they walk the road of adoption. We’ve set up an adoption fund and have helped raise money for them with the understanding that it is a ministry we hope to continue after God blesses them with a child. Today they will meet with a birth mother so your prayers would be greatly appreciated on their behalf!
