Looking to Adopt?

Adoption can be overwhelming and sometimes frustrating. Often you must deal with more than one agency, attorney, state agencies, and social workers. Perseverance, a sense of humor, and a strong desire to adopt are essential. Trusting the process and the agency is an important part of making adoption work.

The couples that come to us seeking to adopt, participate in our Agency Assisted Adoption or International Adoption. We provide the home study, education, support and post placement services. We understand adoption can be expensive and we keep our fees down to assist you in this area.

We have the ability to place children for adoption if we receive such a referral but our focus is to support you as you connect with other adoption agencies or connect with a birth mother on your own. This allows you to expand your search outside of your own neighborhood.

Catholic Charities is a licensed agency with the State of Illinois.
