catholiccharitiesusa.org — Looking to Adopt? Adoption is a complex process, legally and emotionally. Regulations vary by state, and for international adoptions by country. In addition there are Federal Laws that also impact adoption. We are here to help you thoroughly understand the different options you have. Find an agency now. All adoptions require a home study which is an assessment of the adoptive parents. This includes background checks (fingerprints, child abuse clearances and in some states drivers license records), current medical reports, financial records (tax returns and current pay stubs), personal references, a series of interviews at the agency and a home visit , on-going adoption education and an assessment of the applicants parenting skills and capabilities. The goal is to assist the family in identifying the type of child to be adopted (medical background, special needs, age, race, ethnicity, sibling groups) and the type of adoption best suited for their family- domestic, international or foster care. Our member agencies are well prepared to conduct the home study and provide adoption education. We can also assist you through referrals for domestic, international and foster care placements. Getting started- call your local Catholic Charities Agency today or visit our Site Map for Catholic Charities Adoption Agencies in your state. Pregnant? Coping with an unintended pregnancy begins with knowing your options and finding support as you face difficult decisions. Catholic Charities Are Here to Help The issues surrounding pregnancy and adoption can sometimes be confusing, and that’s why Catholic Charities are here to help. At Catholic Charities we truly care about expectant mothers, couples, and their families. During your pregnancy you experience many emotions. You may feel frightened and alone, intense sorrow and pain. Perhaps you feel anger toward family members and friends who don’t understand or support you. These are all normal feelings, but overwhelming emotions can result in sleeplessness, pain, stress and even panic. It is important to realize that these feelings are all part of the process, and that there will come a time when you will feel better. "Giving my little angel for adoption was the hardest thing I've ever done. But knowing that the family will let me be a part of their lives has made it easier to move on." - Erica
