Core Post-Adoption Services
Navigating Open Adoption Relationships
The majority of adoption relationships involve direct communication between birthparents and adoptive families. If you choose to have mediated contact, Bethany can help.
Searching for Your Birth Family Information
Bethany can help you find birth relative information, whether you were adopted in the U.S. or internationally. Request information from adoption records, or consider making contact with your birthfamily.
Consulting, Coaching, and Counseling
