The adoption home study is a biographical history of the adoptive family. The Department of Human Services, State of Minnesota has specific requirements to be implemented by the adoption agency. There are additional requirements for families pursuing an international adoption.
Home Study Steps
The international country will have a list of documents (called a dossier) gathered by the family. Many of the documents are the same as the documents you are collecting for your home study. Copies scanned to PDF of these documents can be sent to IAS by email attachment.
