Henderson Family Bulgarian Adoption

Philip and Megan Henderson Xenia, Ohio

Hello family and friends! We are excited to add to our family of 6 through the gift of adoption. Philip and I have been married 16 years, and adoption has been a topic of discussion throughout our life together. In 2020, Philip was listening to a podcast about children who had lost parents during the pandemic, and our adoption talks took on a different tone. Instead of “adoption...in the future”, our conversations became “adoption...now.”

Over the last year, we have completed the homestudy for our state, numerous trainings, and filled out the necessary paperwork to adopt 2 girls from Bulgaria. We are now waiting to be matched with these precious children, and we’re looking forward to meeting the girls God will place in our family.

During this process, we have personally paid for the homestudy and agency fees. We are now asking our family and friends to partner with us to bring our girls home. We would like to raise $28,000 to cover travel and the last administrative fees (court expenses, visas, translation services, etc.).

We have been awarded 2 matching grants from Patterson Park Church and Lifesong for Orphans, totaling $8000. For these grants, we are truly grateful!

Thank you for praying for us during this exciting time!


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 “Henderson 10127”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, 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.
  • *3.5% fee for donations given with an American Express card
