Services for Adoptive Families
Adoption is a life-long process. Our experienced professionals help prospective families prepare for and understand the developmental process that adoption entails.
If you are considering adoption, it is important to know all of your options, opportunities, and requirements. All adoptions in Virginia require a home study. Most families starting the process do not know what kind of adoption they want to pursue. Your social worker can discuss the options available, which include:
Parental Placement Adoption (also known as private placement) – Where a child is identified mutually by both the adoptive parents and the prospective birth parents.
Agency Adoption – Where a child (born in the United States) is identified by an adoption agency and placed in an adoptive home.
