Catholic Charities provides domestic and inter-country adoption services to children and families. We place children from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds with their forever families.
EXPECTANT PARENTS: We care about you and your baby, and we are here to help regardless of whether you choose to parent your child or to make an adoption plan. Our services are always free to expectant parents whether you are considering adoption or just seeking information. We work with pregnant women, birth mothers, birth fathers, and families interested in adoption. We also assist pregnant women who are looking for ways and resources to parent and care for their children. Click here to learn more about our Pregnancy Services.

Did you adopt a child in 2014 or 2015? Help prospective parents by taking Adoptive Families' Adoption Cost & Timing survey. Start off this National Adoption Awareness Month by providing prospective adoptive families with up-to-date information.
Each year, Adoptive Families polls readers to get the real story on the average cost and length of time it takes to complete an adoption. We frequently hear from families just starting out in adoption that the final survey results are immensely helpful to them
Click here to take the survey. Please share with other adoptive families.
