What is a Home Study?
The home study is done by a licensed social worker and supervised by an accredited agency to ensure the quality that is required for international adoption.
The social worker’s job is to get to know you, and tell you about the what needs the children may have due to growing up in orphanages. Together, you’ll determine what child is a good fit for your family.
The home study process will also attempt to show that your home is a safe place for a child, so background checks will be done. You’ll also do a physical to ensure that you are able to take care of a child.
In the end, it is about 10 – 20 page document describing who you are and how your home is a good place for a child. It is used by the foreign country to match you with a child.
Our social worker, Jennifer, whose picture is next to the text has been with our agency for over 12 years. She will do or review your home study. All of our clients love her!
If you’re a US Citizen living abroad, we can still do your home study!
