Apply Today to Become a Catholic Adoptive Family!
Are you Catholic and considering adoption? This is a big step, and many find it hard to know where to start. We are here to help, and our adoption coordinators are here to answer all of your questions and provide you with the information you need.
As an adoption agency serving Catholics, we have helped many Catholic families pursue their dreams of growing their family, and we are eager to help you too. We speak to many birth mothers every day, most of whom are seeking Catholic families, just like yours! If you have been led to our site, you have found your path to parenthood.
We have been bringing Catholic adoptive families and Catholic birth mothers together since 1986. Catholic family and child services are an important part of our work. We work with birth mothers who are pregnant, have just given birth, and mothers who have older children and sibling groups. Our adoption coordinators have extensive experience and will explain all of your options and record your preferences. You may hope for a newborn or be open to an older child or sibling group. Adoption is somewhat unpredictable, but with faith and an open heart, your dreams of growing your family will come true.
In your search for a Catholic adoption agency, know that we promote open adoption. It has been found that open adoption benefits everyone involved in the adoption. A birth mother does not feel like she is “giving up her baby”. She knows she is placing her child in a loving Catholic home. She knows she will get updates, pictures, and perhaps even visits. The adoptive parents have access to medical and genetic backgrounds and family history but most importantly, the child benefits. A child who understands why they were placed for adoption, their heritage, and who their birth parents are have been found to have higher self-esteem and a healthier sense of who they are.
Many Catholic adoptive families and birth mothers form close relationships. Some describe the relationship as feeling like an extended family. Sometimes the birth fathers and birth grandparents are also a part of this extended family. There is never too much love for a child.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Throughout the process, your adoption coordinator will be there with you. She will guide you through the home study process, help you create your profile, and will pray with you and for you if you like. She will answer all of your questions and work hard to match you with just the right birth mother. Our coordinators have extensive experience and caring hearts.
You can also take advantage of all the webinars available. You will find an extensive library of subjects covered in these webinars that cover everything from preparing to adopt, adoption finance, open adoption, life after adoption, and much, much more. You will be able to hear from other adoptive parents about their adoption journeys. You can learn what worked well for them, their struggles, and interact live on our webinars or watch them recorded.
