Have you been told that your baby might be born with special needs or a life-limiting diagnosis?

Facing this kind of news can feel overwhelming

Are you unsure of how to move forward?

Facing this kind of news can feel overwhelming, but we are here to walk with you as you consider what this means for your future and the future of your baby.

Lifeline is for you and with you:

  • We will treat you with respect and compassion. Your life and your baby’s life are valuable.

  • We can help you obtain updated, accurate information about your baby’s diagnosis.

  • We can discuss your options of parenting, abortion, and adoption.

  • We can discuss information about the joys or challenges of parenting a child with this diagnosis.

  • We can give you information about making an adoption plan for your child.


If you don’t feel equipped to parent and would like to explore adoption, we are here for you.

We will walk with you every step of the way as you explore the option of adoption. Your child is made in the image of God, and there are couples who feel called to parent a child with special needs through adoption. These waiting adoptive families are specifically prepared to care for a child with special needs, and they are committed to having an ongoing relationship with you.

If you are considering adoption, we want you to know that adoption is a loving plan. Choosing parents who desire to parent a child with these unique needs comes out of love for your child.

When you walk with Lifeline:

  • You are in the driver’s seat throughout the process. It’s your decision and your plan.

  • You get to decide what type of family you would like, how much contact you would like to have with them, and ultimately the family you feel is best for your child.

  • There are families waiting to adopt a child with special needs.

  • You have a personal advocate every step of the way. Your pregnancy counselor will be there as a support to you, both before and after placing your child for adoption.

  • An adoption plan is a decision that can be made any time in your pregnancy, and even after your baby is born.
