Who are the children?

Adoption STAR provides adoption planning for children of all ages — from infancy through age 21. The agency places children of all races, backgrounds, and special needs.

What is required for the home study?

A home study is a document prepared by an agency social worker, which details the adopting families’ personal feelings and values surrounding child rearing, development, and other interpersonal issues. It is a requirement for any adoption. Adoption STAR believes that home studies should be viewed as an educational process to allow the clients and agency to get to know each other and to identify what adoption path the client is most comfortable with.

 

Though a home study is required by law prior to an adoption placement, Adoption STAR conducts it’s home studies in a way in which they are not viewed as just a “stamp of approval” to adopt. The home study  includes visits with a social worker and pre-adoption educational classes.

What paperwork is required for the home study?

When you register with Adoption STAR for a home study, you will receive an electronic packet of information that includes all the required documentation and links to paperwork that you will need. Most documentation required for the home study is mandated by State regulations.
