Family Directions

Catholic Charities has been serving expectant and adoptive parents for almost 100 years. Family Directions works to find permanent families for children who cannot be cared for by their biological parents and to assist couples and singles who choose to become parents through adoption. Adoption services are organized to provide a coordinated set of services for the child, the child's biological parents, and adoptive families. An experienced counselor will discuss our options with you, assist you in your decision-making, and help you every step of the way through the legal process. You can expect professional, caring, and honest assistance from an agency that wants to ensure a safe, loving, and legal adoption.

Family Directions is licensed by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families as a child-placing agency and is COA-accredited. Services provided include pregnancy counseling and supportive services, home study approval for both domestic and international adoptions, domestic child placement, post-placement and post-adoption supervision, and search and right-to-know services for adult adoptees and their biological parents.
