"We'd like to adopt a child

from another country."

Catholic Charities offers home study and post-placement services to couples interested in International Adoption. Prospective adoptive parents must complete a required home study investigation process on behalf of a licensed child placement agency in order to adopt internationally. 


Many International Adoption Agencies are located outside of Wisconsin. Having a local agency, such as Catholic Charities, complete the home study and post-placement services can be more cost-effective for the adoptive family.


Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Green Bay is a Hague exempt provider, which means that families who choose Catholic Charities as their home study/post-placement agency must work with a Hague accredited adoption agency. 


Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Green Bay also works with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of LaCrosse in a formal relationship to be a supervised provider.
