Our Work in Bulgaria

Since 2008, Bethany Global has been facilitating adoptions in Bulgaria. We work with a Bulgarian partner that shares our commitment to finding permanent homes for children. Intake to the Bethany Bulgaria Adoption program is currently closed.


Meet the Children

Children in Bulgaria live in orphanages and foster homes, and most often are ages 2 years and older. Families must be willing to consider ages 12-60 months at the time of referral. Children in Bulgaria are likely to have some medical, developmental, or emotional needs. Younger children referred tend to have more significant medical needs, while older children may be healthy. The types of placement needs vary from minor/correctable conditions to severe needs. There are more boys available than girls, and a child’s gender may be requested but is not guaranteed. Bulgarian siblings will be adopted together. Wait time will vary depending on a family’s specific openness to age and types of needs.

Adoption from Bulgaria

Our partner in Bulgaria is VESTA Association. VESTA acts as Bethany’s liaison with the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice to place eligible children for international adoption.
