Catholic Charities: Providing Help, Creating Hope.

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.

POTENTIAL ADOPTIVE FAMILIES: Our staff is committed to helping you find the adoption option that is right for you. We provide you with the information and support needed during your adoption journey. Click here to learn more about our Adoption programs.

Interested in learning more about adoptions? Attend one of our ADOPTION MATTERS workshops, a presentation covering all aspects of finding families for children. Many are intimidated about the process and not sure where to start. Come hear our experienced social workers demystify the journey toward a successful adoption and building happy families by registering for one of our workshops.

Save the Adoption Tax Credit

Interested in getting S.950 passed? Contact your two Senators to ask them to protect the adoption tax credit and make it refundable. Call the Capitol switch board, ask to be connected to your Senator's office (202) 224-3121. Then ask your Senators to become co-sponsors of S.950 — the bipartisan Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act.

Factsheets, sample phone scripts, sample email text, Senator contact information, and more can all be found online at: http://adoptiontaxcredit.org/advocate/

LIVE WEBINAR: Identity in Adoption: Mirrors and Windows

 Thursday May 7, 2015 @ 7:00 PM Central 

Q&A: 8:00PM

  • Have you ever wondered just how much nature vs. nurture will play a role in your adopted child's identity formation? 
  • How will they balance these influences as they pull together their own understanding of who they are?
  • What can you do to help them? 

Join moderator Leah Bloom, LMFT, an adopted person who was adopted from Korea, as she leads our panel of adopted persons through a discussion about the intricacies of identity formation in adoption.

Our panel - adopted domestically, internationally and from foster care - will reflect back on their own experiences and answer YOUR questions about such things as:

  • What their adoptive parents did that helped them through the journey
  • What they wish their parents had done
  • Additional supportive elements and resources that have helped them mold their identity formation
  • Privacy concerns in sharing their adoption story
  • Feelings of loss related to their adoption what tends to trigger this
  • Curiosity and feelings about biological parents and how much they identify with them
