Chesapeake Foster Care Professionals

American Adoptions doesn’t work to complete foster care adoptions, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important to us. If you’re interested in becoming a foster parent or adopting from foster care in Chesapeake, contact the social services department in the City of Chesapeake.

Chesapeake Home Study Providers

Before any adoption — whether that’s a foster care adoption, an international adoption or a domestic infant adoption — you’ll be required to complete a home study. Home studies include three phases: a documentation phase, a home inspection and interviews with each member of your family. It can be intimidating, but these trusted Virginia home study providers will make it painless:

Leaving from the hospital with a baby is not the end of the adoption process. A Virginia judge will have to grant you legal custody in your finalization hearing at the Chesapeake General District Court. Many families look forward to this day for years, so don’t forget to bring a camera!
