Pausing new infant adoption applications
In response to the declining number of infants available for adoption, many Bethany locations have temporarily paused intake of new applications. Across the country, for each of the roughly 18,000 infants placed for adoption each year, there are dozens of individuals and couples already waiting. On average, adoptive families will wait more than two years to adopt a baby.
In nearly every case, expectant parents who choose adoption select the family they want to parent their child. This means wait times will vary greatly with no guarantee of an approved adoptive family being selected.
Pausing new applications will allow Bethany adoption specialists to assist some of our longest-waiting families while ensuring expectant parents have many options to consider when making this life-changing decision.
