Bringing two families together with the love we all share for a child
Adoption Services, Inc. has a compassionate, professional and experienced staff which is available to serve birth parents and adoptive parents who are interested in making a plan for adoption. We are a non-profit, Arkansas-licensed child placement agency with more than 36 years of experience. We are an office of Catholic Charities of Arkansas which is a department of the Diocese of Little Rock.
We work with birth parents and adoptive families across the state of Arkansas who are considering a loving plan of adoption. Generally, we place adoptive children here in the state of Arkansas. While we work with families of other faiths, we are aware that many of our birthparents are Catholic and are looking for a Catholic adoptive family.
Birth parents are offered the opportunity to select a family through the profiles created by our waiting pre-adoptive families. They may then meet each other on a confidential basis. We have a range of openness in our adoptive placements. We work on a case-by-case basis for what is the most appropriate contact for all those involved. Both adoptive parents and birth parents are encouraged to share pictures, letters and updates through our agency. Additional visits can sometimes be possible. All contact is confidential and arranged through the agency. More open adoptions may be available in the future. We will discuss the options with you.
Adoption Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency and our work with the birth parents is provided to them at no cost. We are supported by our bishop, the parishes of the Diocese of Little Rock, Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal (CASA) and through our sliding scale fees. We also deeply appreciate the donations of concerned groups and individuals who are dedicated to supporting a birth family experiencing a crisis pregnancy. Your help and support is always needed and appreciated. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and will help with the pro-life work of our Catholic Adoption Services. Please call if you would like to have someone speak with you or your organization about our agency and services.
We understand the issues that may have led you to consider adoption can be very difficult. There can be some misunderstandings that exist about adoption, but we are available to help with your questions and to provide information. Please feel free to call us. We are here to help you.
