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 various adoption programs and find an agency that they are comfortable working with: an agency 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 are focused on providing transformative services to individuals, families and communities through adoption support, education, and outstanding adoption services.  We offer adoption programs for: 

  • Local infant adoption (Our Domestic Pool Program)
  • Interstate infant adoption 
  • Parental or Private adoption
  • Foster Care Adoption (Waiting Child Program)
  • International Adoption

Call us anytime to speak with an adoption worker and learn more about our services.  We also invite you to attend one of our free information sessions to learn more about our program and the services available to you.
