Domestic, International, Relative, Step-Parent Adoptions.

An adoptive homestudy process is the preparation, education, and evaluation of perspective adoptive parent(s) for adoption. The homestudy may require a pre-placement report and/or post placement report depending on the type of adoption. With non-infant or older child adoptions, counseling before placement and after the child is home in a therapeutic role to facilitate the transition and bonding is available.
