After you have brought you child home, the foreign country, agency, or attorney you are working with may require additional follow-up reports. These Post Placement Reports will contain information relevant to the general well being, health, and education of the adopted child. The number of required post placement visits varies with different governments and agencies. Post Placement visits take place in your home. These are friendly, informal visits which enable the social worker to assess the child’s and parent’s adjustments.

Adoption Counseling and Referral

compassionate and available

Families who are just beginning the adoption process are faced with a confusing array of adoption resources. Choices must be made between domestic and international adoption, between independent placement and agency adoption, not to mention the decisions about the age, race, culture, and health of the child you feel comfortable adopting. All adoptive parents have a picture in their mind of their child. Adoption Support Services of Florida is here to help you with all those decisions.

Assistance with meeting Florida’s pre-adoption requirements

Each kind of adoption (domestic independent, domestic agency, international independent, and international agency) has its own specific requirements. We are here to help you meet those requirements so your adoption process can move along smoothly. If you are working with an international adoption agency located outside of Florida, our information and support will also be appreciated by your agency.
