Every child deserves a loving family, and Bethany has been bringing children and families together through adoption for more than 70 years.

During National Adoption Month (November), we will be celebrating adoption champions like you and sharing many of your inspiring stories that underscore what we’ve always known:

Children thrive best in families.

You can help us spread this message to friends and family who may be curious about adoption or ready to open their hearts and homes to a child in need.

1. Share the links and spread the word. We will share helpful information and inspiring stories all month long on Bethany’s blog and on social media.
