The law requires that a licensed social worker or agency conduct a home study for all individuals and couples that wish to adopt. It is common to feel overwhelmed by this process. The process includes interviews and access to your home, your documents, and other personal information. While this can be a trying process, bear in mind that this is done in the best interest of your future child. We are here to help you, and to help your family grow. Assuming that no glaring issues exist, the home study process should go smoothly. Please talk with your caseworker about any negative emotions or fears regarding the home study process.
