Eight Steps to Adoption
When it comes to making a decision about adoption, many people get stuck between thinking and doing. Fears, uncertainties and doubts keep people from being able to make an informed adoption decision. That is why FamilyLife has created the Welcome Home: Eight Steps to Adoption guide.
The guide provides easy-to-use adoption information from a Christian perspective to help you navigate through the adoption process. The guide addresses the following eight steps:
- Arrive at some basic DECISIONS about adoption
- Evaluate AGENCIES
- Investigate adoption FUNDING options
- Gather and submit the necessary PAPERWORK
- Complete the HOME STUDY
- Determine which CHILD you will adopt
- Introduce the child to your FAMILY
- Finalize your ADOPTION
Information regarding domestic and international adoption as well as adoption from U.S. foster care is also included.
Before you actually begin the adoption process you will want to get a list from your agency of the specific steps involved in adopting through them as rules and procedures change depending on your agency, your state of residence, and the country or state you adopt from.
