Adoption ServicesWe are a full-service adoption agency, and will walk with you every step of the way.
Adoption & Beyond understands how difficult it can be to choose the right agency to guide you through your adoption process. It is for this reason Adoption & Beyond offers free office consultations. During an in-person consultation, we will take an in-depth look at each of the adoption avenues available in order for you to determine which options(s) are right for your family and how Adoption & Beyond can assist you with each opportunity.
HOME STUDY SERVICES
Adoption & Beyond is available to perform domestic, international, private and embryo adoptive home study assessments. An approved home study is required in order to adopt a child. A home study is a comprehensive evaluation of your family life and home environment.
At the first meeting, an adoption professional will meet informally with you to get to know you and to go over the information necessary for the home study process. The paperwork involves sharing your personal background, financial stability, and other relevant information required by your state of residence. Upon completion of the home study paperwork, a home visit and attending an adoption educational workshop, the home study report is written and prepared for submission to the appropriate authorities.
There are post-placement/post-adoption visits required once a child is placed in your home. During the post-placement/post-adoption process, we offer advice and guidance as you transition your child into your home. Each state and country has its own guidelines regarding the number of post-placement/post-adoption visits needed.
DOMESTIC ADOPTION SERVICES
Adoption & Beyond seeks to connect prospective birth parents who are considering an adoption plan for their child with prospective adoptive parents looking to adopt a child as a way to complete their forever family. We work with both parties by providing adoption education, guidance, and child placement services. No matter which side of adoption you are on, we are focused on your needs.
INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION SERVICES
Adoption & Beyond is Hague Accredited and able to guide families in selecting which international agency will best match their family’s dynamics. We network with a number of international agencies who have programs in many different countries. Adoption & Beyond works closely with a family’s selected international agency in order to serve as the local liaison to complete the international home study process, and to provide post-placement/post-adoption services.
PRIVATE ADOPTION SERVICES
Private adoptions occur when a family locates a prospective birth parent through their own networking efforts either by word of mouth or a connection through an adoption attorney or consulting service. Adoption & Beyond assists families with their private adoptions by providing the prospective birth family and the prospective adoptive family with adoption education and guidance.
EMBRYO ADOPTION SERVICES
Embryo adoption occurs when a genetic family has remaining frozen embryos from previous in-vitro fertilization treatments that they wish to place for adoption. Prospective adoptive parents may choose to adopt frozen embryos in hopes they will be able to carry and give birth to their adopted child. Adoption & Beyond works closely with a family’s selected embryo placement program to serve as the local liaison to complete the home study process.
