Adopt a child

Are you interested in growing your family through adoption?

We are a Virginia licensed adoption agency serving Northern Virginia and the surrounding areas. We understand that starting the adoption journey can be confusing and overwhelming, and we are here to help. When it comes to adoption, you have many options available to you, and we can help you decide the best fit for your family. We recognize that adoption is a life-long journey, and as such, we remain a life-long resource to all the families we serve.

Deciding to adopt is the first big step.  Figuring out where to go from there can feel overwhelming.  We encourage families to explore adoption programs and find a provider that they are comfortable working with: a provider who communicates clear values, ethical adoption practices and who are transparent with their clients.  We want you to have a clear understanding of the adoption process and realistic expectations so that we can best prepare you for this journey.  

Our adoption services at Catholic Charities focus on providing transformative services to individuals, families and communities through adoption support, education, and outstanding adoption services.  We offer adoption programs for:  


"We picked Catholic Charities because our Catholic faith is really important to us. It's important to me. It's important to my husband, and so I appreciated the fact that they were rooted in that. We really admired that their program was kind of a full-circle support system for both adoptive families and the adoptee, growing up, should they ever need it, and also most importantly, the birth mothers."
