Home Study Service

Great Wall China Adoption’s social workers provide home study, home study updates, and post adoption services to all Texas and Florida families who are adopting internationally or domestically. Regardless of whether you use Great Wall China Adoption as your agency, we can help you complete a home study and/or post adoption services.

A home study is a report that a licensed social worker in your state compiles in order to testify that you are a qualified family and to determine what kind of child would be best suited for your family.

The Process of Completing a Home Study
The social worker will meet with your family on at least four separate occasions to conduct interviews and to make sure the home is safe for a child based on state regulations. He or she will then take written testimonies from your physicians, local police, and other references. Finally, relatives in the home will be interviewed to make sure everyone is prepared for the adoption of a child from China. Social workers will then notarize this report and make multiple original copies for all of the appropriate parties who need it, such as your local USCIS office and for your dossier to relevant offices.

Post Adoption
The number and frequency of post adoption reports is determined by the country you are adopting from. Please consult with your placing agency regarding specific requirements for your family’s individual post adoption needs. Great Wall China Adoption is proud to offer Home Study Only and Post Adoption services to families in Texas and Florida. Home Study and Post Adoption Service prices vary according to country requirements. Call us toll-free at 1-888-493-2645 or send us an email for pricing and more information.
