  • Description
  • In accordance with the church’s teaching to respect life, our services are designed to help preserve and protect the life of the child, provide care and nurturing for women and children, and assist in the building up of families through adoption. Whether you are pregnant and looking for options for you and your baby, a couple wanting to adopt, or a family needing post adoption services, Catholic Charities is here for you. Catholic Charities Adoption Services is a non-profit adoption agency that serves the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, which includes 18 counties of Northwest Florida. Catholic Charities Adoption Services believes in the innate dignity and value of every human life and that every child is entitled to an environment in which he or she is loved and accepted unconditionally. Since 1974 Catholic Charities’ Adoption Services has been licensed by the Florida Department of Children & Families and accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children. At Catholic Charities, our experienced staff is committed to providing considerate, personal, confidential and professional assistance to all individuals in the adoption triad. During the home study and adoption process, we provide individualized services and comprehensive support tailored to your specific situation. Our adoptive couples as well as birth parents receive counseling and guidance from experienced social workers.
  • Adoption Process
  • The first step in adopting an infant through Catholic Charities is to contact us so that we may gather initial information and send you out some information on our program. Depending on whether there is a waiting list, we would begin the home study process which includes background screenings and interviews. Once the home study is approved, the prospective adoptive parents’ profile (letters and pictures) will be presented to the expectant parents we are currently working with who are interested in participating in the selection of the adoptive family. If the birth parents choose not be involved in selecting a family, the agency will select the most appropriate family based on the birth parents’ criteria, the needs of the child, and how long the family has waited. When a child is available, the potential parents are invited to review all non-identifying information, including medical history, general family background, level of openness desired by the birth parents, and legal standing of the child. During this meeting, the individual needs of the child are discussed. The potential parents have the opportunity to decide if they would like to proceed with placement of the child.
