SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RealOptions Pregnancy Medical Clinics Celebrates National Adoption Awareness Month and announces a new partnership with Bethany Christian Services.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first National Adoption Week, calling attention to the thousands of children in the United States waiting for permanent families. Eleven years later, President Bill Clinton expanded the awareness week to the entire month of November. Elected officials, social services workers, faith-based organizations, and churches will join hands this month for the benefit of lonely and vulnerable children who are precious in God's sight.

National Adoption Awareness Month has motivated communities across the nation to create awareness throughout the month celebrating the joy that is the universal by-product of adoption. RealOptions Pregnancy Medical Clinics celebrated the beauty of adoption on November 7, 2013 at its Ignite Life Fundraising Event where they shared an adoption client testimonial from a birthmother's point of view, interviewed adoptees about why they are grateful, and presented a thank you letter from an adoptive family. They also unveiled a new partnership with Bethany Christian Services.

Valerie Hill, CEO of RealOptions said, "We are the first pregnancy medical clinic in the nation to invite Bethany Services to partner in-house to serve our clients who are interested in adoption. RealOptions and Bethany are taking the lead - we are pioneering new ground. This partnership is establishing a higher level of professional services. If a client is interested in learning more about adoption, we want to meet that need with an in-house consultant on adoption."

Lynette Stime, Bethany's Regional Director of Northern California said, "We have hired a full-time Master's level social worker seeking to expand our ability to reach the South Bay Area.  Being on-site will allow us to fully inform clients readily. Adoption can be a realistic and viable alternative to women facing unplanned pregnancies. So many post-abortive women say - "If just one person had told me about adoption..."
