Catholic Social Service to host workshop series for couples interested in adopting a baby

Catholic Social Service is hosting a four-part workshop series for couples in southwest Kansas who would like to know more about what it takes to adopt an infant.

The first three workshops take place from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Dodge City on Sept. 20, Oct. 3 and Oct. 11, and will address fears, definitions, what to expect, legal issues, and more. The final workshop, set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Cathedral, will feature a panel of individuals and couples who are living and sharing from their stories of open adoption. Lunch will be provided at this final workshop.

"It is very important for us as an agency to hold the adoption workshops every fall and spring as we are always in need of adoptive families," said workshop facilitator Amy Falcon. "There is a perception that there are too many families wanting to adopt, but this is just not the case. Our goal is to find families for the children who need homes."

As 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 Social Service is licensed by the State of Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and has been providing adoption services in southwest Kansas for more than 45 years. For more information about adoption services at Catholic Social Service, or to register for the adoption workshop series, contact Angela Schawe at aschawe@catholicsocialservice.org, or by phone at 620-792-1393.
