Envisioning a World Where Every Child has a Loving Family
Millions of children worldwide are living without the hope of ever knowing what it is like to be loved by a family. In many countries, political turmoil, limited resources, poverty, and cultural attitudes contribute to the need for loving adoptive families.
At Bethany, we are called to address the global orphan crisis. Since 1982, Bethany has united thousands of international children with loving forever families—a testament to our expertise, integrity, and high quality of service. We invite you to discover the blessings of international adoption.
Meet the Children
Waiting is certainly difficult, especially if what you’re waiting for is a family. These waiting children have experienced things like being abandoned, living in an orphanage, malnutrition, and more. Many of these children are older; have grown up in an orphanage; have emotional, cognitive, or physical special needs; or need to be adopted with their siblings.
Many of these children will be given the chance to thrive if they are adopted into your loving family. Can you find a place in your heart to love one of these children?
Bethany is currently seeking families for 400 children waiting for their forever family. These children come from different countries, speak different languages, have different needs and different stories, yet they have one thing in common...the desire to be a part of a loving family! Could you welcome a waiting child into your home? Or, provide financial support to an adoptive family? You are their greatest hope!
International Adoption Fee Calculator
Through generous donations, adoption tax credits, and other sources, many families have found creative methods to meet the costs of an adoption.
The practice of international adoption is regulated by The Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption. The Hague provides guidelines to agencies in order to protect the best interests of internationally adopted children.
Bethany is accredited by the U.S. Department of State’s Council on Accreditation for all of the specific services we provide including compliance with the Hague Convention requirements. We work hard to ensure that high ethical standards are upheld in each and every adoption facilitated by Bethany.
