Our International Adoption Panel Discusses What to Expect in a Home Study

An Adoption.com Original Video | International Adoption Answers

When preparing to adopt, one wonders exactly what is involved in the home study. In this video, our panel discusses what to expect when preparing for the home study. When participating in international adoption, the home study paperwork varies depending on the country. As a rule, the home study is an evaluation by the social worker that will help the country know which child is the best fit for your family. Our panel members share what home studies were like for them. It can be intimidating to disclose finances and personal things that have to do with your family life, but because it is required, it is best to take a deep breath and move forward!
