International Adoption Agencies in Providence, Rhode Island

Home Study Professionals in Rhode Island
Everyone who plans to adopt a child must first complete an adoption home study. This process proves that you have been evaluated as a prospective parent and that you are ready to bring a child into your home. Even though American Adoptions is not able to provide home study services in Rhode Island, you can contact either one of the following agencies for your Providence adoption home study.
If you have any questions about the process, or if you would like to find additional resources for your home study, please visit 1-800-homestudy for more information.
Providence Court System
To complete the final stage of your Providence adoption, you will need to have a finalization hearing. This is the day when your child will become an official member of your family, so remember to bring a camera and take plenty of pictures! For more information on your hearing, you can contact the family court in Providence County.
Local Hospitals in Providence
Just like how expectant mothers are able to plan their adoption, they are also able to create a hospital plan to describe how they want their delivery to go. Your adoption specialist may ask you questions for your hospital plan, such as:
How much time do you want to spend with the baby after the birth?
Do you want the adoptive family in the room during the delivery?
Who will be able to hold your baby first?
How much time do you want to spend with the adoptive family?
The details of your hospital plan are entirely up to you. You also have the ability to change your mind about anything in your hospital plan if it no longer suits your best interest. For example, you may have wanted the adoptive family to be in the room with you during the delivery, but decide later that it might not be the best option after all. No matter the circumstances, your adoption specialist can help you every step of the way.
If you are an expectant birth mother pursuing adoption in Providence, you may be working with one of the following hospitals:
If you have any questions about your hospital plan or if you would like to start creating an adoption plan with our agency, please call 1-800-ADOPTION for more information — with no obligation to choose adoption.
