Check Eligibility and File Paperwork to Start
In order to even be considered you must prove that you are an eligible adoptive family. This involves not only fulfilling the legal requirements, but numerous other unofficial qualities as well. Knowing the important factors can make the difference in the approval process, allowing you to steadily move through the administrative process.
Pass A Home Study
Next, a home study needs to be requested. After a series of interviews, medical reports, proof of employment, background checks, and follow ups, your home will be visited and inspected. Passing this home study and character evaluation is critical to being approved for an adoption.
Placement and Finalization
Once you meet all requirements and pass all tests, a child search can begin. When a child is finally selected, they will be under your care. During this phase, a social worker will consistently check in to ensure the child is being treated well. Once it is finalized, paperwork will conclude the process and complete the adoption!
