International Adoption Resources
Bethany Christian Services — From their website: Bethany Christian Services is a global nonprofit family preservation and child welfare organization caring for orphans and vulnerable children on five continents. Bethany is recognized as a prominent leader in social services worldwide. Founded in 1944, our mission calls us to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families around the world.
Show Hope — From their website: Established in 2003 as Shaohannah’s Hope, Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth initially founded Show Hope out of their desire to see more children find their way into forever families. In 2009, after changing the name to Show Hope, this organization has seen an amazing explosion in growth. From a six-story caring facility in China, equipped to provide surgeries and medical care to special needs orphans, to multiplying the effects of the adoption grant program by assisting churches in setting up their own adoption funds, Show Hope continues to expand its remarkable worldwide impact.
Every Orphan’s Hope — From their website: Every Orphan’s Hope shares the love and hope of Jesus Christ with orphans in Zambia, Africa. We don’t build orphanages; we build families. By constructing homes in AIDS-stricken communities, orphans and widows build new lives together as a family. Led by a “mama,” orphans are brought to life in Christ in the community where they are known and surrounded by their peers. Jesus Christ is calling you to join in Him, along with us, in caring for a generation of children for His glory! Jesus is their hope – but He needs our heart and hands!
America World Adoption Association — From their website: We are a faith-based charitable organization with an established, well-respected reputation among adoption professionals, government agencies, and foreign adoption authorities. We are committed to maintaining integrity throughout the adoption process, and advocating for the fatherless while seeking to place them in loving Christian families.
Empowered to Connect — Empowered to connect is an agency focusing on improving the natural parental-child bonds that need to develop after an adoption. Through various resources, books, conferences, seminars, etc., Empowered to Connect aims to help families through this process and create lifelong positive familial relationships.
