Adoption issues considered at Lifetree Café

Published: Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 11:52 AM.

Adoption and the search for birth parents will be explored at Lifetree Café at 7 p.m. CT on Monday, Feb. 10. 

The program, titled “Finding the Family I Never Knew,” features the filmed stories of a woman who searched out and connected with her birth mother and of a woman who, after 35 years, still searches for the child she gave up for adoption.

“About a third of children adopted by new families have post-adoption contact with their birth families,” says Craig Cable, Lifetree’s national director. “Reconnecting with birth mothers can be powerful and positive—but that’s not always the outcome.”

Participants in the Lifetree program will have the opportunity to discuss issues relating to adoption in a safe, caring environment.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Gary Grubb at 334-806-5667 or
