If you have just started your adoption journey to adopt a baby or child, you may have heard and read about the adoption “home study.” The home study is a requirement in order to adopt. It includes a report of your family, your daily life, as well as an assessment of where you will raise your child.
As a full-service adoption agency, Lifetime Adoption Agency provides this integral adoption service as you prepare for your domestic adoption. In this video, Lifetime Adoption Agency’s President and Founder Mardie Caldwell describes our agency home study service:
The agency home study is conducted by one of our licensed social workers. They will train and educate you as you prepare for your journey to adoption. The licensed social worker collects information about the prospective parents for the report. Information compiled includes your finances, criminal background checks, work, health, parenting styles, and your ability to care and love for a child that is not of your body, but comes to you through adoption. The social worker will also include in the home study a few visits to your home. These visits mainly are done to make sure that your home meets state licensing standards for safety.
If you have questions or would like to employ our home study services, please call Lifetime Adoption Agency at 1-800-923-6784 or send us a message.
