Home Study and Post-Placement Only Services
We offer comprehensive home study services and post-placement supervision to families residing Maryland and Virginia for the adoption of a child/children through a country program offered by another accredited child placing agency, private domestic adoption, or a domestic child placing agency in another state.
We understand that adoption is a lifelong journey and work to support people of all ages who have a connection to adoption: adopted persons, their families, and the broader adoption community. Learn about our domestic and international birth family and background searches as well as our post-adoption educational opportunities.
Currently, our agency is not hosting post-adoption support groups. However, The Center for Adoption Support and Education offers the Kids Adoption Network (KAN) that provides kids ages 6-18 the opportunity to interact in a group setting with similarly-aged new friends. Learn more about this support group.
If you'd like to get involved or learn more, we encourage you to participate in adoption-focused educational webinars, view the calendar of events for members of the adoption community, and/or find volunteer opportunities in the DC metro area.
