Adoption By Choice, a program of Catholic Social Services of Fall River, Inc. has been providing compassionate, comprehensive adoption services for over 80 years.  A non-profit, licensed adoption agency in MA and RI, our program is dedicated to meeting the needs of expectant parents, birth parents, adoptive parents, and adopted persons.  ABC provides a wide range of domestic adoption options including fully and semi-open adoptions, traditional adoptions, and expectant or adoptive parent identified/initiated adoptions.

ABC provides home study and post-placement services to individuals adopting internationally.  Through
contractual agreements we are able to partner with highly respected international child placing agencies

If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and want to know more about adoption, our staff will share information and provide counseling in a non-judgmental and understanding manner.  We are here to support your choice and provide the information you need to make a decision that meets your needs and those of your child.  Should you decide that adoption is the best option, you may select the adoptive parents and meet with them if you so desire. You may decide to see your child after placement, and/or to receive pictures and updates over the years. You can personalize your adoption plan, receive free counseling and legal consultations, no-cost post-placement services, and assistance with medical care. If you decide that parenting is the best option for you and your child, you will have our understanding and support. We want you to make a plan that is best for you and your child.
