Adoption Home Studies

An Adoption Home Study is required when a family wants to adopt and is therefore the first step to the adoption process. Woodfords Family Services provides a Home Study service to families.

Our desire is to partner with families and to help them realize their dream of adopting by providing the service of a completed home study. Our staff will walk you through each step of the adoption home study process and will provide you with the support and education needed.

  • Indepth interviews with all family members
  • Background checks
  • Criminal, driving and CPS
  • Medical statements
  • Three (3) references

An Adoption Home Study costs $2,000.
