Bringing Emmaleigh Home!

Anna Goodworth Simsbury, Connecticut

Hello friends and family and random strangers who happen upon us….

We currently have 2 bio kids (Lukas age 13, Adelaine age 11) and 2 adopted kids (James age 8 from Ethiopia, Sean age 3 from China) and are matched with the SWEETEST little 1 year old girl in India.  Our little girl in India has a development delay and though we don’t know what all that will entail, much of it we feel prepared in advance for through Adam’s work research and teaching.  There are many hurdles in adoption – paperwork, government processes, random delays and finances.  We have been very blessed in fundraising our last two adoptions, so we feel sheepish doing this one more time.  Yet, here we are – not expecting anything of anyone.  However, we welcome if anyone feels led to give and most of all (NOT AT ALL SAYING THIS TRITELY) your prayers.  Our little girl needs to come home and our little girl needs healing.  Your prayers are absolutely needed for this.  PLEASE PLEASE pray.

We are blessed to receive a matching grant from an amazing organization called Chosen and Dearly Loved (I recommend checking them out).  Not only have they given us a matching grant, but they have/are praying for us and offering other emotional/relational support.  They use Lifesong for Orphans as a means to get that grant to us and fundraise.  So, your donations go so much further even!

Thank you so much for your love and support and prayers.


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Goodworth 7675”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.

Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.
