About Pennsylvania Adoption Option

You’re never alone. PA Adoption is always here as a supportive advocate to help guide you through this difficult time.

PA Adoption is a collaboration of Catholic Charities and Catholic Social Services — offering adoption and foster care services all across Pennsylvania. We welcome people of all of faiths and all walks of life without judgment and in complete confidence.

Licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, our agencies see adoption as a human service, not a business transaction, and consequently, we offer expecting parents a full spectrum of services — both during pregnancy and after the birth of their child. Counseling is also available to family members, who can provide valuable support.

We involve the parents in selecting an adoptive family, enables them to choose how near or how far they want the family to be, and provides a degree of “openness” regarding continued contact with the child as he or she grows.
