Our Story Starts With Saying Yes

Our Story


In 2011, Whitney Sewell and his wife Chelsea were at an event where a pastor spoke about the global orphan crisis. He shared startling statistics about the number of children without families. There are over 150 million orphans in the world, and he told the congregation that it could cost up to $60,000 to bring a child home. On their way home that night, all Whitney and Chelsea could think about was, “Why would we not adopt?” God had moved in both of their hearts, and their “yes” was simple. Within a week, they turned in the application to adopt. Two years later, their first son came home from Ethiopia.

The Sewells went on to adopt two more children, but not without experiencing hardship throughout the process. They personally experienced the highs of being so close to bringing a child home and the unforeseen lows of failed placements and loss of nearly $30,000. With huge hearts for children in need, Whitney and Chelsea founded Life Bridge Capital, their for-profit company, as a way to financially support their dedication to the adoption crisis. Through this company, they pledged to donate half of their personal profits to the Omnah Foundation to ease the financial burdens adoptive families face.
