Birth parents routinely choose prospective adoptive parents from our group of approved families. We help you to prepare a good profile of yourselves 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 of reference and other supporting items such as birth certificates, marriage certificate 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.

Cost of an Adoption

To complete an entire adoption, the professional fee to the agency is $9,600.00. The fee is paid over four installments and it includes the counseling and case work with the birth parents, the home study process and all of the legal steps before and after the placement. An attorney is not always needed as the agency staff usually completes all of the court work in non-complicated cases.

For clients seeking a homestudy only, fees start at $1,800.00 and may vary depending on your specific circumstances.

Outside costs in a case could include allowable reimbursement of a birth parent’s living, travel or medical expenses. Each case is different in how much money is required in this area. An average range is $1,500.00 to $4,000.00.

The agency also offers a home study service for families preparing for an attorney facilitated adoption. Please contact the agency for the current home study fee.
