The home study process can be broken down into three simple steps:
1. Obtaining Information
We will ask you to complete several questionnaires, providing information about your family background, your current family situation, your work history, and your finances. You will also be asked to do fingerprints and child abuse registry forms. These will be reviewed prior to the home visit
2. Home Visit(s)
Your Home Study Social Worker will make at least 1 home visit while conducting your home study. These visits will give you and the Social Worker a chance to ask questions, discuss the adoption process, and get to know each other. In addition, several post-placement visits will be conducted once you bring your child home. These visits will help to make sure that you are bonding well with your child, that your child is healthy and developing appropriately, and that any concerns that you might have are addressed.
