CatholicCare's Adoption and Permanent Care Unit handles matters surrounding adoption and permanent care with sensitivity, understanding and respect for all involved. Our goal is to assist single mothers and couples, as much as possible, to care for their child as the first option. If for some reason the birth parents are not able, due to circumstances that would cause long-term separation, then adoption or permanent care can be arranged.
The following services are available:
- an information service about previous adoptions, including counselling for the adoptee and parents
- advice and arrangement of permanent care, healthy infant and special needs adoptions.
View Anne’s story about our search for a loving family who will care for her and take on the additional challenges involved with her special needs. Learn more about our Adoptions, Permanent Care and Family Support Programs.
It must be noted that all adoptions have the ability to be "open", with CatholicCare acting as the contact between family members who agree to meet or exchange information. All matters relating to our services are handled confidentially and in accordance with privacy legislation.
