Clay & Lauren Kirkland

Pelham, AL

Clay and Lauren Kirkland met at Samford University and were married in 2003. They always desired to adopt, but thought that they would have biological children first. After Clay was diagnosed with testicular cancer and they battled infertility, the Lord made it very clear that His plan for their family was adoption all along! Their sons were adopted domestically through Lifeline Children’s Services, and are now nine and six years old. Adoption has shaped their family and their hearts in ways they never thought possible!

A Waiting Child

Orphan USA

God moved in Clay and Lauren’s hearts to start the domestic adoption process with Lifeline for a third child, and they are now in the process of fundraising and waiting to be paired with a birth mother. They hope to adopt a baby from the state of Alabama.
