Our Adoption Journey

William Strassner
William Strassner Ontario, New York

Bill and I knew from the beginnings of our relationship that growing our family would be a challenge.  I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 18 and, unfortunately, due to treatments I am unable to bear children of my own.  We tried fertility treatments that were unsuccessful and knew that if God was closing that door, He was obviously opening another door for us.  We are excited to adopt a child, to bring a child into our home who may not otherwise be loved and be cared for.  Adoption is not an easy path but we are faithful that God will not only provide a child for us to love, but that He will provide for us financially.  Thank you for any and all help you can give us.  We are so excited to be parents and to hold our little one in ours arms someday.

Lifesong has awarded us a matching grant of up to $2,000 meaning that any donations we receive up to that will be doubled! Every little bit helps! Thank you all!


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 “Strassner 7587”, 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.
