A new organization in Meridian helps connect people who want to adopt with children who need to be adopted.
A ribbon cutting and open house was held Thursday for Lifeline Children's Services.
Lifeline is a Christian, non-profit, adoption care and orphan care organization, with domestic and international adoption programs in 16 different countries.
Lifeline officials say opening this location was a natural extension of what they are trying to do.
"Lifeline has been around for 30 years in the state of Alabama, and we just opened this new office in Meridian in November," said Mary Frances Snyder. "And we've got offices in eight different offices across the country."
Lifeline is currently accepting applications for people interested in adoption. If you are one of those people, you may stop by their new office at the corner of 9th Street and 24th Avenue.
