Hoping To Adopt
We Can Help!

Adoption provides so many benefits and unique opportunities to both change children’s lives and to enrich the life of the adoptive parent or family.

By adopting a child, you are giving that child a chance to live a fuller, better life. You are, in effect, giving life to life.

For all the good that comes through Adoption, the adoption process can be confusing and frustrating. Our firm specializes in adoptions. We provide the support, knowledge, expertise, and attention to help make your Adoption as smooth as possible. We’ve been here before, we know what to expect, and we know that even the tiny details matter

Home Study Requirement

A home study determines the suitability of the intended adoptive parents. It can be completed prior to identifying the adoptive child. It is valid for one year after the date of its completion.

Issues that may be explored during an adoption study:

  • Ability to provide for a child’s physical and emotional needs.
  • Feelings about parenting an adopted child and the ability to make a commitment to a child placed in the home.
  • Type of child family seeks to adopt.
  • Family’s child-rearing practices, experiences, and beliefs.
  • Information concerning marital relationship, emotional, and financial status, etc.
  • Description of the family’s home and community

A child cannot be placed in a prospective adoptive home without a preliminary favorable homestudy

Adoptswap

Our purpose is to facilitate the exchange of photographs and other information between adoptive families and birth families who wish to remain connected yet maintain their privacy.

The climate of adoption is fortunately changing. Adoptions, once upon a time, were characterized in negative terms. There was a sense of once a child was placed for adoption, the child’s history was not relevant. However, over time, we have trended toward openness in adoptions for the benefit of all parties. Birth parents who place their children for adoption no longer have to fear that they will never learn of the child that they conceived. By promoting communication between the birth parents and adoptive parents, the birth parents can watch their children grow and reap the benefit of knowing that a loving and selfless decision was made for the child. The adoptive parents also benefit from this continuing communication because they no longer have to fear the inevitable questions about the birth parent.
