This past Saturday, September 10th, Lifeline families came together for our "Adopt Without Debt" Seminar, and heard from Author and Mom, Julie Gumm, who is passionate about helping others make their dream to adopt a reality by showing families where to find extra money in their household budget, apply for grants, and fundraise in order to stay debt free.

We are so grateful to Julie for her time with us on Saturday and have heard from many families who attended, how helpful and practical the information and stories she shared would be to their adoption process. Click here to hear more from Julie and about her time in Birmingham. Lifeline would also like to thank Alliant Bank for Sponsoring the event and to Paul Rogers of Alliant Bank who joined us and shared personally with our families. Dunkin' Donuts very generously donated breakfast for the morning, which was a big hit, and we are grateful for their continued support!

Check out this article The Southeast Outlook published on one of our families adopting from Ethiopia. The Monks have put some of the very things we learned on Saturday into action. Click here for the article.

"If finances are the biggest fear in adoption, then God’s provision might be the biggest lesson."
