The experienced adoption professionals at Catholic Charities provide extensive support & guidance through all phases of the adoption process. The advantages of working with Catholic Charities’ International Adoption Program include:

  • Our thorough education and training for prospective parents helps you to prepare for adoptive parenthood.
  • Our ongoing support for adoptive parents throughout the process, offered by your social worker and through our monthly waiting parent groups, until a child is placed in your family.
  • Our program matches you with one social worker throughout the process, who provides you with personalized services. Prospective adoptive parents know in advance what the agency fees are, and international fees are paid, on your
    behalf, to approved programs overseas, prior to travel.
  • Our knowledge and experience in providing ethical adoption services and supportive counseling to adoptive parents over many years.
  • Our excellent relationships with foreign adoption sources and cooperating agencies.
  • Our valuable resources for medical and developmental pre-placement child referral assessments.
  • Our commitment to the lifelong needs of those touched by adoption through ongoing post adoption services for adoptive parents, adoptive families and adopted persons.
