Here to Help You
Catholic Adoption Services was licensed in April 1984 and has since assisted with or completed hundreds of adoptions. Before we were licensed, the Diocese of Little Rock was involved in a number of adoptions that had a Catholic connection, and about which we now retain some limited information. Please contact us to see if we have any records of your adoption in order to assist you with the search and reunion process.
Look for Medical Information
You may also make a request for background and non-identifying information from your file records. You will need to contact us and complete an adoption search request form. You will also need to provide identification confirming your identity. There is a fee for the preparation of non-identifying information.
There have been changes in Arkansas adoption laws through the years. A consent process was established to assist birth parents and adoptees (18 and older) make contact with the help of our agency through mutual voluntary consent. Contact us and one of our counselors can answer your questions and discuss the search and reunion process. It is your choice whether or not you wish to proceed. We encourage you to provide information for your file. There is no fee for filing of consents and/or filing updated information, but there will be reasonable fees at a later date for actual search and reunion. One hour of reunion counseling is required for both the adoptee and birth parent prior to actually meeting.
