Although a thriving country, China still has tens of thousands of orphaned and abandoned children in need of a family. Bethany helps many children in China find families through adoption, but for some, that is not the answer. Bethany is partnering with the Chinese government to help find each of these children the loving home they deserve.
Bethany is serving children and families in China through:
- In-country foster care
- Family preservation
Since 1992, Bethany has facilitated more than 2,200 Chinese adoptions. We have served more than 50 children through foster care and provided homes to 20 children with special needs. Since 2000, Bethany has also been involved with “Every Child Deserves a Family” conferences that support orphanage directors and foster care workers. Our continuing goal is to help even more vulnerable children.
Sponsor a child or a family in need:
Can you extend a hand in love to a child or family
in need? Families and communities benefit in
tangible ways from sponsorship. Through Bethany,
your money provides direct and specific care
based on the individual needs of a family. When
you sponsor through Bethany, you will join a group
of sponsoring individuals to provide the level of
care that is needed.
Ready to take the next steps towards adoption?
Each country Bethany works in has unique requirements and costs for adoption. We also work with in-country specialists who are ready to assist you in your adoption journey. To get started fill out our free preliminary application or learn more about international adoption.
