We facilitate several types of adoption
- Domestic infant adoption
- Kinship adoption
- Designated adoption
Attention: We are currently accepting applications for all adoption programs EXCEPT FOR our Domestic Infant Adoption program. Please contact us for more information.
The process to becoming an adoptive family includes
- Background checks and references
- Complete paperwork
- Home study (a series of meeting and family assessment by a case manager)
- Training and education about adoption
- Compile a profile book for pregnancy counseling clients to review
- Meet with birth parents in pregnancy counseling program who have chosen you
- Post-placement visits
- Finalization in court (six months following placement)
- We highly value the matching process between a birth family, child, and adoptive family.
- Birth parents choose the adoptive family, meet with them, and have a range of communication with them following the placement of the child.
- This communication is agreed upon between both the adoptive family and birth parents, and commonly includes letters and pictures being exchanged through Catholic Charities.
