Please Note…

  • During the stage of pre-application, couples are free to explore other avenues for adoption. Once the training program and home study is complete and the couple indicates they wish to work with Catholic Charities, this is considered a commitment to work exclusively with our agency.
  • Applicants should be aware that there are waiting periods throughout the entire adoption process.  Wait times for placement vary significantly due to a variety of factors, and there is little predictability to process.
  • Depending upon the applicants’ overall financial situation, adjustments in the fees charged can be considered at the discretion of the agency.
