The home study is a crucial component of the adoption process.

Once the home study is approved, we will work diligently to find the right match for your family. This involves reviewing available adoption opportunities, considering birth parent preferences, and facilitating meetings between prospective adoptive parents and birth parents.
After placement, we will handle all the legal aspects required to finalize the adoption. This includes preparing and filing the necessary legal documents, representing you in court hearings, and ensuring compliance with applicable adoption laws.
Even after the adoption is finalized, we will continue to support you throughout the post-adoption period. We can assist with any legal matters that may arise, such as name changes, birth certificate updates, or post-placement reports.
