MN Waiting Children Adoption


Bethany Christian Services of MN, we believe that all children deserve a safe, loving, nurturing family. Bethany has partnered with the State of Minnesota in order to recruit families and place children in adoptive homes. We are excited to work with families wanting to adopt MN Waiting Children.

MN Waiting Children are children in the state foster care program who are available for adoption. These children are unable to live with their families due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

Adoptive families must have a heart for children with special needs, such as emotional or behavioral challenges, developmental delays, or physical impairments. Most of the children have experienced multiple traumas that have affected their emotional, mental, and physical health. In spite of these challenges, these children have exceptional potential.

In Minnesota, there are approximately 350 children waiting to be adopted by loving families. Of these children, nearly 38% are 12 to 17 years old. In addition, nearly 60% of these children are part of sibling groups, and these siblings need to be adopted together. All kinds of families can care for Minnesota's Waiting Children! We are looking for people who love children, have an ability to commit to raising children despite their challenges, and have a desire to make a positive difference in children's lives.

There are no fees for families who wish to adopt children from the State of Minnesota through this program. Please call our office at 763.553.0344, or fill out our contact form for more information about MN Waiting Children adoption.
