  • Adoption Process
  • Speak With A St. Mary's Service Counselor: Families interested in adopting should call the office at 1-847-870-8181 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this time a counselor will ask you general questions and then schedule a private consultation to talk in more detail and review next steps. Attend An Initial Meeting: This meeting is designed for prospective adoptive couples new to adoption. At this meeting, you will learn general information on adoption as well as St. Mary's approach to adoption, which will include eligibility requirements, the home study process for domestic and international adoption, licensing requirements and adoption fees. At this initial meeting, a counselor also will give you a St. Mary's Services' application packet. Complete An Application: Should you choose to work with St. Mary's for your adoption, the next step is to complete the application packet in its entirety. Upon receipt of your application and payment, St. Mary's staff will notify you of your acceptance for a home study in the Domestic Adoption Program. You will be assigned an adoption counselor who will remain with you during your entire adoption journey. Complete The Home Study Process: Families who are looking to adopt in Illinois are required to complete a home study. A home study is a series of interviews that you and your spouse will undergo with a licensed counselor. During these interviews, your counselor will learn more about your family and preferences in an adoption. The home study also requires for you to submit character references, undergo criminal background checks, obtain medical evaluations and receive education on parenting and adoption. Once your home study is completed, your counselor will assist you in completing a profile that will be presented to birth families who are considering adoption for their unborn baby. Prepare For Placement: This is a good time for you to continue your education on adoption and parenting. Your adoption journey begin
