Many states require home studies before a child can be placed in your custody as adoptive parents. We recommend you complete a home study as one of the first steps in your adoption process.

 

On average the home study process takes three to four months to complete. In general, the following information is included in the final home study report:

  • Significant people in the lives of the applicants
  • Marriage and family relationships
  • Motivation to adopt
  • Expectations for the child
  • Feelings about infertility (if this is an issue)
  • Parenting and integration of the child into the family
  • Family environment
  • Physical and health history of the applicants
  • Education, employment, and finances, including insurance coverage and child care plans if needed
  • References and criminal background clearances
  • Summary and social worker's recommendation
  • Personal and family background, including upbringing, siblings, key events, and what was learned from them
