We are here to listen, answer your questions, and support you in making the best decision possible for you and your unborn child. We will also encourage you to include your support network in this decision-making process.
If you’re interested in adoption, or unsure about your next step, our case managers will guide you through the available options, including open adoption or parenting with compassion.
All our prospective adoptive families have received a minimum of ten hours of adoption education, passed background checks, and completed a comprehensive family assessment.
Expectant parents have access to these resources through Catholic Charities:
- Counseling and support, whether she decides to entrust her child or to parent
- Pre-qualified adoptive parents
- Open adoption agreements
- Case management
If a you choose to pursue an adoption with Catholic Charities, we will mediate an Open Adoption Agreement, receive the formal adoption paperwork, and support you throughout the adoption and post-placement. The Open Adoption Agreement is an agreement between you and the prospective adoptive parents and can include letters, pictures, and visits until the child is 18.
