Amanda is a birthmother who found herself unexpectedly pregnant. One night during Amanda’s third trimester, she searched, “what do I do?” when pregnant, and Lifeline’s information came up. She got connected with Lifeline pregnancy counselor Lauren. Amanda decided to make an adoption plan for her child and appreciated her personal experience through Lifeline. She describes Lauren as “a sister coming in and holding my hand for me.” Amanda encourages people to donate to Lifeline so they can be part of bringing gospel hope to women like her. She says Lifeline is “so much more than just an adoption’s like a family.” Donate today to Change One Life. For more information, visit
