A home study is a written report for individuals and couples who wish to adopt. (If you are living in the US and want to adopt an infant or child getting a home study will be required.)
During the home study process, families will be requested to submit: autobiographical statements, employment and financial information, personal references, medical reports for all family members in the home, and criminal background clearances. The home study also consists of prearranged individual meetings between you and an Adoption Connection social worker. The social worker meets with the prospective adoptive parent(s) individually and together, with at least one visit taking place in the home.
