  • Description
  • Whether it is through adoption or by being raised by his/her birth parents, we believe that every child deserves a safe, stable and loving home, where all his/her emotional, financial, medical, and psychological needs can be met. Catholic Charities is an agency licensed by the state of New Jersey to provide an array of services related to adoption. If you are pregnant and considering adoption, if you are a couple looking to grow your family through adoption, if you are a birth mother who placed a child for adoption years ago, or if you were adopted through our adoption services years ago, we can help.
  • Adoption Process
  • 1. INITIAL GROUP MEETING: This meeting is held periodically and general information on adoption is discussed and questions answered. Following this meeting, there may be one other educational group meeting before or during the home study process. 2. HOMESTUDY: If after the initial group meeting you decide to proceed with adopting through our program the next step is completion of your home study. The State requires a minimum of three interviews with no maximum. The interviews are mainly conducted at our offices with one home visit. After completion of the home study interviews and all documents are received including the results of the criminal history check, approval can be given and the couple is notified that they have been placed on our waiting list. Note: Couples on waiting list must have their home study updated after 18 months and re-approved before placement of a child. 3. COUPLE SELECTION: When a family has completed the home study process and been approved to adopt a child, the birthparents in most instances choose to select the couple through written profiles created by the couples. Many times they also meet the couple prior to the birth of their child. 4. POST PLACEMENT: Catholic Charities offers a full range of open-adoption alternatives for all members of the adoption triad: the birth parents, the child and the adoptive parents. 5. AGENCY SUPPORT: Adoptive families receive training and support throughout the entire adoption process. Post-Adoption counseling services are available for families and individuals after adoption.
