  • Description
  • Shasta County Health and Human Services provides adoption services for Shasta County children who need a family to provide love, stability and permanence. Adoption permanently transfers parental rights from birth parents to adoptive parents, who become that child's "forever family." It means giving children the love and understanding they need to develop to their full potential.
  • Adoption Process
  • The first step in adopting a child is to attend an inquiry meeting, where you learn about the process and available children. After an orientation meeting, you will complete an application packet to determine the types of children that you would be willing and able to take into your home. This helps provide a good match for both you and the child. Once the paperwork has been submitted, the home study begins. This allows the social worker can get to know you and help you learn whether adoption is right for your family. This allows us to make the best possible match. Social workers remain involved with families throughout the adoptive process until the adoption is finalized (and they can also provide support after the adoption). In most cases, financial assistance is available to help parents with the legal, medical and living costs associated with caring for a child with special needs.

Comment from Tifani: Hi, My husband and I are currently working with an private domestic adoption agency and we need to get started with our home study. Do you do home studies for private agency's or just for fostering. If so what are your fees? Thank you
