All Adoptive Families have to go through an extensive Home Study process in order to become Adoptive Parents. The Home Study process involves, criminal background checks and child abuse registry checks. As part of their application to become Adoptive Parents all our Adoptive Parents have to go through extensive background checks. In addition, they have to provide personal references, work references, proof of income and copies of bank statements. They must have health and car insurance. Their home is assessed for safety. We meet with each family member who occupies their home and conduct a psychosocial assessment. In short, we do everything possible to make sure our Adoptive Parents are mentally, and physically fit and able to parent an Adoptive child.
