Our Home Study Friends

Our Collaborative Home Study Agencies


If you don’t live in North Carolina, we’ll have to connect with a local, licensed home study agency in your state.  They will carry out the home study services on the ground, and in person, and we will supervise and advice them.  Over our 15 years of experience, we’ve developed many healthy business relationships with collaborative home study agencies in several states.  We have St. Mary’s parents with finalized adoptions adoptions in over 30 different states!

Because of this experience we can most likely easily put you in touch with an adoption home study agency to help you through this part of the process, under our supervision.  We are currently working on updating our website to provide home study agencies’ information, but while that is pending you can call us and we’ll let you know whom we know in your state.

 

ARIZONA

We’ve developed a high regard for International Child Foundation, Inc in Arizona.  They offer home study services and our Saint Mary’s parents who have worked with them have only nice things to say about them. The home study is an important document which is prepared with much attention to detail as one of its functions is to meet several different requirements and legal criteria, not only at the state level, but also on a federal and foreign country level.  International Child Foundation social workers, Mariann and Peggy, and their supervisor, Jackie have helped our families meet specific Polish home study requirements.   

We’ve developed a friendly relationship with this agency.  If you select them and us, our agency will provide the adoption services and International Child Foundation will help with the home study portion of the process, which will be supervised by Saint Mary’s.
