Partnership Model: Waiting Child Adoption Advocacy (Domestic and International)
What the Local Host Does: Present information materials (powerpoint, brochures) to their congregation, small group, or community to highlight the waiting children around the world, and also provide ways that individuals can help impact these children.

Be the mouthpiece for children who are older, part of a sibling group, and/or have special needs.
What the Organizational Partner Does: Bethany will provide local hosts with a powerpoint presentation, brochures, and other presentation material needed to help advocate for the waiting children around the world, as well as practical suggestions and adoption information for acting on the advocacy.
