parents routinely choose prospective adoptive parents from our
group of approved families. We help you to prepare a good profile
for birth parents to review.
To be approved as an eligible family,
the agency completes a home study, which is also called a preplacement
assessment. The home study
process includes two office visits with Ms. Brail and a home
visit with the agency social worker. Required documents include
current physician reports, criminal record clearances, three letters
reference and other supporting items such as birth certificates,
and tax statements.
We also offer training on adoption issues,
such as networking and
advertising techniques and raising an adoptive child. Ms. Brail
and the staff are very dedicated to personally handling all
of the details
of the home study process.
