Our Mission at GLA

MISSION STATEMENT

To further the Kingdom of God by placing children available for adoption in avowedly Christian
homes, which are defined by Biblical standards as a marriage between one man and one woman, both of whom have committed their lives to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who will raise children accordingly.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

To decrease the number of women and children who live in poverty in Polk County by offering
Christian open adoption services to single women who are pregnant, unemployed, or under
employed, and under educated, thereby allowing the children to grow up in loving, Christian
homes where they will escape poverty, receive a good upbringing and education, and have
greater opportunities than their single birth mothers could provide, while allowing the single
mothers to maintain a relationship with their child, if they choose to, while still pursuing an
education and/or employment so they also can escape life-long poverty.
