EVERYONE DESERVES A FAMILY

Learn about the process of adoption today and how we can help you through it. 

Initial Intake Meeting

When first applying to a public adoption agency, applicants are usually required to attend an intake meeting.

Final Decision

The entire process may take a short period of time or several months, depending on a variety of factors, including worker caseload.

Formal Application

If applicants are still interested in proceeding after this meeting, they are asked to complete a formal application.

Children's Needs Considered First

When considering adoption, remember that the purpose of adoption is to find families for children, not children for families.

The Homestudy

There may be a waiting period before a social worker is able to do an applicant's homestudy.

Join An Adoption Support Group

Because the process can be emotionally draining and filled with highs and lows, applicants are advised to join an adoption support group.
