Although a thriving country, China still has tens of thousands of orphaned and abandoned children in need of a family. We help many children in China find families through adoption, but for some, that is not the answer. We are partnering with the Chinese government to help find each of these children the loving home they deserve.
We are serving children and families in China through:
- In-country foster care
- Family preservation
Since 1992, we have 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, we also have 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.
EXCITING NEWS from SHANGHAI:
Bethany has become one of a select group of adoption service providers to partner with the Shanghai Child Welfare Institute in China. The Shanghai CWI is a top-tier, well-respected orphanage, which offers a high level of care and support to the children in its care. Bethany will now have the opportunity to place more children from China into families and we are looking for families open to adopting older children and children with identified special placement needs.
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.
