  • Adoption Process
  • 1. Apply to Adoption Link. 2. Meet with an Adoption Link social worker to complete your homestudy (typically, one visit in the family home and one visit at the Adoption Link office). As part of the Homestudy process Adoption Link connects adoptive applicants to online training as well as reading materials on various topics. 3. Continue to gather all your homestudy documents. 4. Complete your Adoptive Family Profile. This is the document we will share with birthparents when they are selecting a family. It may be a photo book, like the do-it-yourself kind widely available online. It may also be a four-page 8.5 x 11 booklet. The booklet is a less expensive option, but, because it is layed out by a professional graphic designer, it can generally accommodate every photo and all the text you'd like to include. Booklets are easier for our social workers to carry to birthparents and allow the birthparents to get to know you quickly, but thoroughly. Whether you opt for a book or a booklet, make color copies and hold onto your original. Provide Adoption Link with copies. Birthparents will keep the document of the family that they select. 5. Network on your own. Contact everyone you know that you want to adopt. Tell your pastor, your drycleaner, your best friend, all your friends - everyone! 6. Get matched with a birthparent. A birthparent has asked to meet with your family and the meeting goes well. You're matched! 7. Your baby is born! 8. Placement of the baby occurs after the birthparent(s) have signed the surrender agreement, usually at 72 hours after birth. Adoption Link holds custody until you go to court at six months to finalize your adoption. 9. Post-Placement Visits: While you are waiting to finalize, your family meets with an Adoption Link social worker monthly.
