Catholic Charities Adoption Family Testimonials

Randy & Kelly

“You don’t have to bear a child to be a parent…whether you bear that child or receive that child through the gift of adoption, it’s still your child!”

Peter & Amy

“Catholic Charities really counsels the birth mother before she actually chose an adoption plan!”

Matthew and Carmela

Our experience with Catholic Charities Adoption Agency was most positive in every way.  As we affirmed our decision to adopt, Catholic Charities became more apparent as our choice of agency. A friend of ours had recently adopted with Catholic Charities and had a wonderful experience. Our desire to adopt a newborn with an affordable option was consistent with Catholic Charities mission.

Right from the beginning upon meeting Joan Woody, Adoption Coordinator we felt very at ease. As we moved ahead with the adoption parenting classes that were organized by Catholic Charities for adoptive parents, our questions, concerns and desires were answered and affirmed with dialogue from other adoptive parents and adoption coordinators.

Throughout the entire process, the adoption coordinator was receptive to our desires and kept us current and informed every step of the way. We were deeply moved by the affection and sacrifice made by the birth mom in choosing us to be the parents to our daughter. We were astounded to feel, how Joan Woody our adoption coordinator said, when the time came this parent and child match would be made in heaven. We found this to be so true and feel so blessed. Now our family is complete and we feel so happy.
