Adoption is a Loving Choice.

At Catholic Charities, we see adoption as a loving choice. Adoption means love and respect for everyone involved: birth parents, adoptive parents, and especially the child.  Catholic Charities West Michigan has programs that walk alongside all members of this adoption triad.

Are You Looking to Adopt?

Our infant adoption program exists to meet the needs of children whose birth parents are making adoption plans for them. We offer an open adoption program for birth parents who wish to make a voluntary adoption plan for their child. The agency educates and studies families wishing to adopt an infant throughout West Michigan. It is our strong belief that an open adoption relationship between biological parents and adoptive families provides the best possible outcome for children as they develop and grow into adulthood.
