Our Process

We make the process work for your family.


“Adoption is the most intentional process on earth.”

-Jody Cantrell Dyer


We pride ourselves on prompt replies to inquiries and thorough communication. 

We have a preliminary process to help families avoid unnecessary costs and help assist in completing the adoption home study efficiently.

1 We will respond to you by the method in which you contacted us and answer any preliminary questions you may have. 

2 When you are ready, we will schedule a phone conversation.  The discussion by phone is incredibly important, as it allows us to make an initial determination as to whether or not you are likely to have a successful home study. The call will also allow you an opportunity to ask questions you may have.  Should we determine that something about your circumstances would prevent a successful outcome, we will inform and advise you before you have paid any fees.

3 If the phone conversation provides the information necessary to move forward positively, the next step is the application process which has a small associated fee that supports our initial review of your submission. If we determine that there are no immediate barriers, your application is approved. 

4 We empathize with the copious amount of information that is needed for a home study; you will have a knowledgeable, supportive social worker guiding you and helping you to break down the process into manageable pieces
