Catholic Charities caseworkers help adoptive parents one step at a time to get through the ups and down of foster care and adoption. Recently, one family needed an extra helping hand during a crisis situation.

“Catholic Charities was supportive of us and our daughter’s birth mom through our journeys of finding each other and making sure the matching process felt right for all of us,” said Joanna.

After months of getting to know each other, the time came and Angelina went into labor. The Smiths were on call and were at the hospital for the birth of their adoptive daughter, Alexis.

If you’re looking for project for your team or co-workers to do this holiday season, Catholic Charities would love to partner with you. Several organizations and parishes have already started projects to help foster care families and other Catholic Charities’ work, like domestic violence shelters. Here are a few examples of what’s going on in December.G
