How do we get started?
How do we get started?
- Fill out an online Application – This is the first step in the process. All prospective adoptive parents need to complete this online application. If you only require assistance in having your home study completed by our agency and you are adopting through another adoption agency for an international or domestic adoption, you will need to meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a husband and wife married for a minimum of 3 years
- Be a practicing Christian willing to sign and submit agreement with our Statement of Faith
- Be able to submit a reference from your pastor or clergy as a part of your supporting documents
- Upon completion of your application, we will review it and contact you. We will provide you with initial documents by email that will need to be completed and uploaded online through our secure portal.
- Once the initial documents have been received and reviewed, we will forward you another packet of information relating to the supporting documents that you will need to gather and submit to complete your home study.
- International and Domestic home study fee: $2000.
