For Birth Parents

The Catholic Church is built on tradition and community. As a Catholic facing an unplanned pregnancy or a parent struggling to provide a safe, loving home for your child, adoption can be a positive option. Life can be difficult, and choosing the right road for you and your child can seem overwhelming. Adoption is an unselfish act that puts the needs of your child above yours and is an amazing act of love. With open adoption, you will receive updates, pictures, videos, and even have visits. You can also choose a Catholic adoptive family that will ensure that your child is brought up in the Catholic faith. He or she will learn about the traditions, the Bible, and will be a part of the Catholic community. Our experienced and caring adoption coordinators are here to help you understand the adoption process and will help you match with the best Catholic family for you and your child. Check out our Catholic Families who are waiting to adopt.

For Adoptive Families

If you are Catholic and hoping to adopt, we are here to help those dreams come true. In an open adoption, the relationship between the birth parents and the adoptive parents can be a close and vital one for the parents and, most importantly, for the child. Having the Catholic faith in common can be a way to create a connection and bond. We have many birth mothers who are interested in finding Catholic families to adopt their newborns or older children. If you feel the call to adopt, open your heart to all the possibilities you can. You may see yourself adopting a newborn, but perhaps a toddler or a sibling group would fill your home with joy. Our adoption coordinators help birth parents with children up to the age of six find Catholic adoptive families for their child or children. We do not separate sibling groups as we feel this bond is one that should not be broken if possible. Our coordinators will help match you with a birth mother who has the same hopes for contact after the adoption as you do and who our coordinators feel would be a great match for you.

Catholic adoption is a beautiful act of love. A family welcomes their child into their loving home and then in baptism into their supportive parish. We have had birth mothers attend the baptism of their child into the adoptive parent’s church, and this is always an amazing and special occasion for all. As the members of a Catholic parish are like family, birth parents and the adoptive family can be like extended family as well. We even have birth grandparents who have become close with the adoptive family and are able to have a relationship with their birth grandchildren. There is never too much love for a child, and a child that knows he or she is loved so much by their adoptive parents, birth parents, and their family, and by the Catholic parish they are a part of is a true blessing.
