The Baird Family’s Adoption Story

In this episode, the Baird family joins the podcast to talk about their adoption process to adopt their little girl internationally.

Markie and Daniel Baird are international adoptive parents who adopted through Lifeline. 

Herbie Newell is the President & Executive Director of Lifeline Children’s Services and its ministry arms.

Rick Morton is the Vice President of Engagement at Lifeline Children’s Services.

November is National Adoption Month. Every day, orphan numbers continue to rise, but the pandemic has slowed the number of families willing to enter into the adoption process. In honor of National Adoption Month, we are excited to offer a financial scholarship through the Hope Adoption Fund for qualified families. Families who apply for a full international program in November are eligible for a Hope Adoption Fund scholarship of $1,000. Visit to apply. For more information email us at [email protected] or call 205-967-0811.    

The mission of Lifeline Children’s Services is to equip the Body of Christ to manifest the gospel to vulnerable children. Our vision is for vulnerable children and their communities to be transformed by the gospel and to make disciples.
