Home Study Resource

Home Study Resource

All prospective adoptive parents must become licensed to adopt. This is what is known as a home study. Everlasting Adoptions does NOT conduct the home study, but we will give you referrals for sources/agencies in your state that can provide a home study for you. This would be an independent, licensed social worker or a licensed, child placing agency. You will call them to ask them for their pricing and their process and then hire whomever you feel comfortable with. This process takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks. A social worker that is assigned to you will come into your home and interview you.

You will have to meet certain requirements, which usually are:

    • Seeing your home to make sure you have enough space to raise a child.
    • Proving financial stability by: W2 forms, last years income tax return, check stubs, bank accounts, etc.
    • Proving good health by taking a complete physical.
    • Conducting a complete criminal background check (FBI level – in all 50 states) by having your fingerprints taken to show that you have not committed a major felony in any state of the U.S. If all of these requirements are met, then you will receive a written report stating that you are Home Study approved and ready to adopt legally.
    • If all of these requirements are met, then you will receive a written report stating that you are Home Study approved and ready to adopt legally.

I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am director at Everlasting Adoptions. Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered what I now know is my purpose and passion in life — building families through the miracle of adoption.

Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US for over 20 years has allowed me to utilize the skills I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is extremely dedicated and devoted to helping people like you every single day. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose, and I look forward to helping you with your adoption needs!
