Adoption Home Study
It’s one of the first, most important, and often misunderstood steps of the adoption process for hopeful parents: the adoption home study.
An approved home study is required in every adoption to ensure a child is being placed in a safe, stable home. But while the adoption home study includes home visits, background checks, a review of important documents and interviews with a social worker, it’s nothing to be afraid of. With the right preparation, your home study can be a smooth — and even exciting — part of the adoption process that brings you one step closer to becoming a family.
