Many families choose to adopt infants or young children from abroad. The staff at Adoption Options can provide you with the information necessary to decide whether this is the right choice for you. While Adoption Options does not place children internationally, we do offer a range of services to help prepare for adoption and provide support post-adoption.
Our home studies are recognized and accepted by the U.S. agencies that work in other countries to place children. As part of the home study process, we will help coordinate services between Adoption Options and your placement agency.
When the home study is complete, Adoption Options staff members continue to be available for additional resources or administrative needs related to the placement of your child.
Adoption Option social workers can also facilitate post-placement visits, which are required by most agencies, as well as re-adoption services (a judicial process that leads to the procurement of a new birth certificate). In addition, transcultural community networks, support groups, and playgroups are often available for families upon their return home.
