If you choose adoption, Caring Choices offers the licensed adoption services of Catholic Charities of TN Inc. Placement services are offered without regard to your religious beliefs. Open adoptions are available-where you select the parents and can have an on-going relationship.
Adoption is a three step process. The first step is to submit an application. The next step is the home study, a state-mandated legal requirement in all adoption placements. Home studies are an educational process for prospective adoptive parents as well as a way to ensure adequate emotional, financial, and physical resources are in place. the last step is placement and support. For caucasian infants without special needs, the wait may be lengthy. For minority and bi-racial infants, there is often no waiting.
Information meetings are held bimonthly for inquiring families. We also offer several support groups for waiting families, as well as for those who already have received a placement. In addition we network with other agancies to provide an annual educational conference.
Our experienced staff can help guide you through the homestudy process required in the United States, various international legalities as well as helping you complete a dossier. We do not only provide homestudies, but offer after placement counseling as well. Fees vary based on country and child.
Other services include educational seminars, support groups for waiting families and families that have received placements. There are also many cultural educational opportunities for children and parents on a monthly basis.
