Any agency or attorney office in any U.S. state which assists birth parents who are choosing to make an adoption plan.
International Adoption Services provides home study services for Minnesota residents so they can work with any agency assisting birth parents with an adoption plan. Some adoptive families know birth parents who are choosing to make an adoption plan and have an attorney to assist with the legal documents.
A home study is a written report in a format required by the State of Minnesota and includes all information which is required by the State of Minnesota and the U.S. state or the international country of the child’s birth.
For domestic adoptions, a notarized home study is provided to the adoptive family as well as an electronic copy for efficient sharing with the primary agency. More info on our Home Study Page
After a child is placed, the social worker who prepared your home study, will visit your home, discuss any questions or concerns you may have and write a report about the child’s health and adjustment. The report is sent to the primary agency which assisted with the placement of your child. More info on our Post Placement Reports Page
