Catholic Charities

Hello. I've posted this question in the General Forum but I haven't received any responses as of yet. Have you used Catholic Charities for your adoption services? Thanks!

I'd like to know more about them, too. My husband and I are starting to save money for an infant adoption and we wanted to use this agency.

My husband and I are Catholic Charities adoptive parents!

We had an amazing experience and could not have asked for a better fit.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, I'm happy to share!

I'm very curious to know about your experience! My husband and I are considering our local CC. If you don't mind me asking, were there hidden costs? We understand that they are a non-profit organization. Did you incur the birth mother's medical expenses, however?

Here is our timeline with Catholic Charities

Started classes in March 2011.
Home study done July and August 2011.
Case worker provided us incorrect information and home study was never completed.
CC waiting to approve home study due to lost paperwork that we submitted again in March 2012.
Now we are waiting....April 2012.

No hidden fees!

Up front and professional in every way.

GREAT experience.

We are in FL and birth mother expenses are actually provided through the the sale of "Choose Life" tags. There is a separate fund for this cause. However, in the breakdown of fee's it is indicated that a portion goes toward birth mother expenses. We never gave any extra!

Good Luck

We are still waiting on home study approval. Had to fill out more paperwork. This is the tough part now.
