Supporting you after adoption
Adoption is not a one-time event. It's an evolving and ongoing experience. No matter how you've experienced adoption, you deserve resources that support you. Whether you're an adopted person, birth parent, or adoptive parent, we're here for you.
If you're encountering challenges related to adoption, please don't hesitate to reach out. The areas we often help people with include:
- Openness in adoption
- Trust and attachment
- Identity and the various life stages of adoption
- Family dynamics and adoption adjustment
- Trauma, abuse, and neglect
- Challenging behavior
Every post-adoption experience is an ongoing journey. Bethany is here to navigate the journey with you.
The Post-Adoption Contact Center
Regardless of whether you're a Bethany client, we welcome any birth family member, adoptee, or adoptive family member to receive a free, initial consultation.
We'll help you navigate any unique adoption-related needs you face. Through phone or email, you'll receive one-on-one support to develop a plan designed to help you thrive.
"We just wanted to say how much Bethany’s post adoption services have meant to our family. Over the past several months, our worker has become such a vital part of our 'team.' Parenting a child with a trauma background is never easy, but Bethany's staff stayed right alongside us and helped us navigate through our most trying times. Thank you."
"When we moved last year, we had difficulty finding post adoption services until we connected with Bethany. They helped connect us to a list of providers within days. What a great resource! I wish we had known about it sooner!"
