Pregnancy and Adoption Who We Are:
Catholic Charities of Tennessee is a state-licensed Hague Accredited adoption agency serving all races and religions. We place Caucasian, minority race and special medical needs infants. We also assist with many independent placements. Our services are offered regardless of religious affiliation.
What We Believe:
All of our provided adoption services are to be child centered. Our goal is to identify a family for the child, not a child for the family. To ensure a positive outcome of an adoptive placement the counselor, the birthparents and the adoptive parents should work together to build a relationship that honors ALL members of the triad.
What We Can Offer You:
Domestic, International and Independent Adoption Services
Our professional and caring staff is committed to providing you with all of the information, support and services you need to build your family through adoption. You can depend upon us through every stage of the often confusing and overwhelming adoption process.
We also offer several support groups for waiting families, as well as for those who already have received a placement.PUBLIC COMMENT OPPORTUNITY
