Kris Faasse is the senior vice president of clinical operations at Bethany Christian Services. She tells OneNewsNow that for decades Bethany has been equipping families to be the answer for children who are in need. Faasse says November is always an important month for them.

"National Adoption Month is a wonderful time for us to celebrate those families formed by adoption, and also to draw attention to the need for permanent families for kids in so many places," she says.

Faasse says National Adoption Month is a busy time for Bethany Christian Services.

"Many of our offices are having adoption celebrations this month and special activities, whether that's picnics or open houses,” she says. “Also there are educational opportunities to continue to let families know about the needs of kids."

Bethany Christian Services has offices in 36 states and works in many countries around the world. It also offers a free church bulletin insert and PowerPoint slide for churches to use in recognizing National Adoption Month.
