Bethany Christian Services is a global nonprofit family preservation and child welfare organization caring for orphans and vulnerable children on five continents. Our local Bethany office is located in Raleigh, NC and there are 2 other offices in North Carolina. Theres a Bethany office in most every state. We choose Bethany for a few reasons: we really like that the birth mother receives counseling before and after the birth. Bethany considers themselves a lifelong agency, so if the birth parents or adoptive parents need anything regarding adoption, Bethany is always a resource even after placement. We also have friends who adopted a sweet little girl domestically through in November 2013. They could not recommended Bethany enough and so far our involvement with them has been nothing but wonderful.
