We are so grateful to all the people that helped us reach Goal #1. We have reached that goal and are making good progress to Goal #2.
Now that we have chosen our adoption advocate we are ready to start the adoption home study process.
What is the adoption home study process you ask?
It’s a 3-6 month process meant to:
- Educate and prepare the adoptive family for adoption
- Evaluate the fitness of the adoptive family
- Gather information about the prospective parents that will help a social worker connect the family with a child whose needs they can meet
After all that the social worker puts together their report and either approves or denies us as adoptive parents.
The average cost for this service is between $1,000 to $3,000, we need another $1,000 to reach this goal.
