  • Description
  • Adoption Horizons is a community-based adoption agency licensed to conduct home studies, provide adoptive parent education and facilitation, and complete state required post-placement services. We offer a variety of domestic programs and services to families considering adoption. In addition, Adoption Horizons also facilitates independent adoptions through its Infant Placement Program. Domestic, hospital placements are carefully coordinated to meet all the legal requirements as well as provide professional social services and counseling. This program requires families to be enrolled in another of Adoption Horizons programs. This is the beginning of your exciting journey through adoption! We hope you are able to use the information here to better understand the adoption process and the services offered by this agency. You can also request information to be sent to your home, learn more about our monthly informational meetings and see the beautiful faces of families and children who have already experienced this incredible journey. Congratulations on taking the first important step towards becoming an adoptive family.

  • Adoption Process
  • Step 1: Inquiry Phase. You begin the adoption process with Adoption Horizons by making an inquiry contact by phone. During this brief interview, you will provide us with basic information that will help us share some important facts about adoption and our agency. After this contact, you will receive an information pamphlet about our agency and other adoption materials. Next, you are invited to attend our Meet-the-Agency Night, which is held on the third Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at our office. At this meeting, you will learn the history of Adoption Horizons, the role of the governing Board of Directors, and state licensing features. In addition, you will be given an overview of the adoption process, expenses and how the homestudy process works. Often, a Board member, social work staff member and an adoptive parent will also attend. You are then invited to a free consultation meeting with a program director to discuss specific program guidelines and review qualifying information. This appointment takes 1 to 1½ hours and requires both potential applicants (if married) to be present. At the end of the consultation—and an adoption appears feasible—you will receive an Adoption Horizons Application Packet. (Cost: $75.00). A motivated family can easily complete this part of the adoption process in one to four weeks. Step 2: Application & Approval Phase. Adoption Horizons works with about twenty new clients and five birthmothers a year and accepts clients all-year-round for all programs. Applicants may begin the adoption process as soon as their application has been reviewed and accepted and they have contracted for services. When an application has been accepted, the applicant is then invited to “Contract for Adoption Services” which takes 1 to 1½ hours. During this meeting, the family will be asked to sign various contracts, and will be given an orientation to their “Contract Binder” which contains all the materials needed from the star
