Family Testimonials

Hear what families are saying about the work that God is doing through Lifesong.



“Getting the matching grant made it easier for us to tell our friends and church about our fundraising efforts. Lifesong also matched us with a local grant organization that actually provided the funds. This group helped us and gave us information along the way. Now we have a relationship with the members of that organization.”

“The service from Lifesong was exceptional. The people were there to answer our questions; they were prompt in sending us the grant. Their prayers for our family and our adoption journey were much needed and appreciated!”

“Lifesong is our unsung hero, the blessing God threw in the mix at the very last minute. The matching grant received allowed us to raise the last bit of funds needed for travel to India to pick up our sweet Titus.”

Daniel & Patti

Matching Grant Recipients, Adopted from India


“We are extremely grateful for the matching grant we received from Lifesong. We were shocked to get the grant, and the funds came quickly when they were available. Lifesong made it so easy! Knowing there were dollars available motivated and encouraged us to get the word out. We think we were able to raise more funds than we would have if it were a non-matching grant.”

Jeff & Liza

Matching Grant Recipients, Adopted from Ethiopia & China


“We loved having Lifesong help us with our adoption expenses and fundraising support. The process was easy and we couldn’t have had our funds as quickly without their help. The staff at Lifesong is top notch!! Thank you so much, Lifesong, for the huge part you played in helping our son come into our family!”

“I absolutely love how Lifesong for Orphans continually champions a Kingdom vision larger than itself. Lifesong isn’t just about Lifesong. From facilitating local church adoption funds across the U.S. to indigenous adoption efforts in Ukraine, Lifesong is about helping Christians vibrantly reflect God’s heart for the orphan in practical action.”

“I am deeply grateful for God’s grace in Lifesong…I wholeheartedly recommend Lifesong to churches who want to express the love of the Father to the fatherless here and around the world.”

Dr. David Platt

“Every chance I get, I point adopting families (and those who think they might be) to Lifesong. Our Christ Jesus is using this ministry to empower families to adopt children, and thus to point the whole church to the Gospel that saves us and the mission that sends us.”

Russell D. Moore
