Post-Adoption Services for Military Families

The journey of adoption can bring unexpected challenges for military families. We’re here to help.

All adoptive families face some questions, concerns, and challenges that are different from families raising biological children. For military families, facing these challenges alone can be daunting. That's why Bethany Christian Services provides post-adoption services to give children and their parents the resources needed to thrive. 


Post-adoption issues facing children and parents include: 

  • Dealing with challenging behaviors
  • Adjusting to the new family dynamics of adoption
  • Building trust and attachment
  • Working through the life stages of adoption
  • Searching for your birth relatives
  • Recovering from trauma, abuse, and neglect
  • Healing from grief and loss

Watch a short video of an adoptive family dealing with some of the unique challenges that can occur from being in the military.

PACC has been a great resource for us to lean on when we were unsure of our parenting strategies. They helped us think through the way we were parenting, asked really good questions, and helped us find new perspective when it came to discipline in difficult moments. Of course, everything is not perfect in our family, but we have found new joy and hope in parenting our children. —Jason and Emily, Adoptive parents
