Catholic Charities Infant Adoption Orientation for couples

   The following is provided by Catholic Charities of Southwest Kansas:

For couples struggling to start a family, there is hope. There are selfless birthparents looking for couples who can offer a better life for their child than they are able to provide. To help couples navigate the adoption process, Catholic Charities is offering an Infant Adoption Orientation on Jan. 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Newman Western Center, 236 San Jose, Dodge City. 

“Catholic Charities is committed to providing education and support for birthparents as they create an adoption plan, and for couples who want to adopt,” said Lori Titsworth, Adoption Social Worker. “So many times, people are interested in adoption but believe it is too expensive, there is a long waiting list, or they misunderstand open infant adoption. We encourage couples who want to learn more about adoption to join us for this educational opportunity. You won’t be sorry.”

Catholic Charities of Southwest Kansas is part of a national Catholic Charity network that has been looking after the needs of children, parents and families for more than 100 years.

Catholic Charities is licensed by the State of Kansas Department of Health and Environment to place children in safe homes, and has been providing adoption services in southwest Kansas for more than 50 years.
