Adoption

Catholic Charities is committed to the philosophy that every child has a right to a lasting, loving home. Our efforts are directed toward finding a family for any child in need, regardless of the special circumstances that may be involved.

Adoption services are provided for women who are pregnant and thinking about adoption, as well as those families seeking to open their homes and hearts to adoptable children. Families are especially needed for older children, children of minority or mixed racial heritage, and children with special medical needs.

Our programs do not discriminate against persons based on race, age, residence, creed, religion or socio-economic status.

I Want To Adopt

At Catholic Charities, we believe that every child deserves a loving, lasting, happy, and nurturing home. We also believe that every adult has the right to adopt. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, or Christian faith. However, we do carefully screen all prospective parents through a background check and a home study completed by a licensed social worker.

I’m Looking For My Birth Parents

Catholic Charities offers post adoption services that are in accordance to the Adoption Confidentiality Act. Adoptees who are 18 or older may request non-identifying information on themselves. If you are 21 or older, a search may be conducted by the agency for the purpose of further information and, if desired, a possible reunion with your birth parents.
