How much does the home study cost?

The total fee including the application fee is $1400. There are a few background checks completed by third parties that you will be responsible for paying for, you pay them directly and we have no control over there pricing. Additionally, once you achieve placement you will need to complete post placement visits.

I have past criminal history, can I still adopt?

Every case is different. Give us a call so we can talk about your specific arrests and criminal history.

What do you look for when you do the home visit?

We know that having someone come to your home can be very intimidating. We promise you, there is no reason to be stressed. We want to see your home in its everyday condition- so please don’t spend hours cleaning 🙂 . The purpose of our visit is to ensure the home is safe and livable and answer any questions you have! We’ve got you!

What happens after the home study is complete?

Once you have an approved home study, you will want to start working on being matched with a mom. We walk you through this, guide you, and answer your questions during the home study. We also provide tips and “cautions” so that you can be a smart “consumer” in this adoption process.

We Want To See You Win

We aim to create a partnership between birth parents, adoptive parents, and the loved one they’ll come to share. Our promise is that every home study experience is supportive, educational, and interactive.
