We were hired to visit these 4 families and capture their adoption stories of the children with special placement needs. This is a short on their combined stories. Our client, Bethany Christian Services is seeking families for 400 children waiting for their forever family.

Visit them at https://www.bethany.org/these-400 to learn more.
