Adoption By Choice, a program of Catholic Social Services of Fall River, Inc. has been providing compassionate, comprehensive adoption services for over 80 years. A non-profit, licensed adoption agency in MA and RI, our program is dedicated to meeting the needs of expectant parents, birth parents, adoptive parents, and adopted persons. ABC provides a wide range of domestic adoption options including fully and semi-open adoptions, traditional adoptions, and expectant or adoptive parent identified/initiated adoptions. ABC provides home study and post-placement services to individuals adopting internationally. Through contractual agreements we are able to partner with highly respected international child placing agencies. If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and want to know more about adoption, our staff will share information and provide counseling in a non-judgmental and understanding manner. We are here to support your choice and provide the information you need to make a decision that meets your needs and those of your child. Should you decide that adoption is the best option, you may select the adoptive parents and meet with them if you so desire. You may decide to see your child after placement, and/or to receive pictures and updates over the years. You can personalize your adoption plan, receive free counseling and legal consultations, no-cost post-placement services, and assistance with medical care. If you decide that parenting is the best option for you and your child, you will have our understanding and support. We want you to make a plan that is best for you and your child.

Child and Family Services strengthens families and the communities in which they live. Child & Family’s mission… “to heal and strengthen the lives of children and families” is built on the following beliefs: Communities thrive when supported by strong families; Society is strengthened by ensuring that children and families attain their full potential; Families are the foundation of a strong community and are essential to a healthy society; Families have the right to raise children in a safe and nurturing environment; Every person has inherent worth and dignity. These beliefs influence the services we provide in our community and have guided our growth since we first opened our doors in 1843. Today, Child & Family Services is the largest and most comprehensive social service provider in Southeastern Massachusetts and the largest provider of adoption services in Massachusetts. Demand for our services has grown and we are expanding to meet that need. At the same time, we continue to work both internally and with community partners to find new and better ways to help people overcome problems and find strength within their family circle.
