We have a hidden jewel in our Archdiocese. We have an adoption agency located in KC, KS that has an excellent record of finding babies for adoptive parents. Currently, the average wait time for approved prospective parents is only seven months.

St Joseph Adoption Ministry has been placing babies with Catholic adoptive parents across the nation since 2001.Sister Dolora May is the executive director They have developed a national network with adoption professionals which affords them with access to babies born across the United States.

They could place more babies if they had more prospective parents!! This is truly a hidden jewel. For more information on SJAM go to their web site at . Please spread this good news!
