International Adoptions

Migration and Refugee Services receives frequent inquiries about services related to international adoptions since it is listed as a resource agency in federal government forms and web sites. MRS does not provide services in this area. Rather, such services are, in many cases, provided through Catholic Charities or other diocesan agencies in communities throughout the United States.
For more information on international adoption related services available in your community, please contact:

Catholic Charities USA

Alexandria, VA 22314
(703) 549-1390, ext. 135

The U.S. Department of State also has general information about the international adoption process.
