Catholic Charities emphasizes the agency’s continuing availability to all parties in the adoption triad, even after the period of agency supervision ends. This support may be in the form of individual counseling or referral for needed services. In cases where an agreement to maintain on-going contact is made by the birth parents and the adoptive parents, such as through letters or pictures, the agency will act as the intermediary between the two parties.
