Questions and answers about adoption:

What are the requirements for adoptive parents?

Those of a Christian faith, who enter into Holy Matrimony, in accordance with Catholic Social Teaching and Canon Law, must meet the following requirements: married for three years, between the ages of 25-50, no history of child abuse, no criminal history and an approved Adoption Home Study. We only place with Oklahoma families unless the birth parents prefer an out of state couple. Family life is a vocational calling and faith is a part of the adoption journey.

After couples have an approved Adoption Home Study, the placement of a child with their family can be as brief as a few weeks to as long as a few years. Catholic Charities primarily places newborns and infants, however, on occasion we have assisted with placements of older children.
