Home Studies

Each family comes to Harmony with its own specific situation. Some families come to Harmony looking for a full service adoption agency, some families have been matched with a prospective birth family or already have the child to be adopted in the home and only need an adoptive home study. Whatever the situation, Adoption Specialists will complete the home study in a professional and timely manner.

The home study process may feel complicated and overwhelming. A home study is a thorough evaluation of your capacity to parent an adopted or foster child. The process includes gathering documents such as medical statements, birth certificates, marriage certificates, letters from employers, criminal background checks, personal references and other documents, interviews and a home inspection.

Harmony Family Center staff want to partner with prospective parents through the process to make the Home Study experience as smooth and comfortable as possible. For more information please contact us at 865.982.5225
