Home Studies

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.

Adoption Education

Adoption STAR is known for its incredible adoption education program. Founded by an educator, Adoption STAR specializes in providing pre and post adoption educational opportunities. In addition, those exploring a domestic adoption will fall in love with the educational opportunities provided for them as well.

Open, Semi-Open, and Closed Adoptions

The terms open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption are familiar terms in the field. However they tend to hold varying definitions depending on whom you talk to. There is no one formula that dictates whether an adoption is open or closed as there is a beautiful array of options where both adoptive parents and birth parents can tailor an adoption that is comfortable for them and in the best interest of the child. Adoption STAR has briefly outlined the broad definitions for each of the terms below. Allow yourself to learn more about these options.

Post Adoption Support

Studies have shown the importance of post adoption support. Families need their adoption agency long after the adoption is finalized, as adoption is a lifelong process with different presenting issues related to ambiguous loss, grief, anger, and issues of identity at various developmental stages for the child. Adoption STAR’s post adoption department, known as Family STAR, is responding to the need to effectively serve adoptees and their birth and adoptive families long after the adoption finalization.
